Dezeen publishes 50,000th post
This is Dezeen's 50,000th article! To celebrate that dizzying milestone, we've commissioned a hypnotic illustration by London-based designer and artist Sarah Boris.
More than sixteen years after being founded by Marcus Fairs from his spare bedroom, Dezeen is still going strong. The first ever Dezeen post was an unassuming news story on 17 December 2006, and we now publish around 75 every week.
Our articles were read nearly 100 million times in 2022 receiving almost 27,000 comments, while Dezeen Studio's videos got close to 18 million views.
Last November, Dezeen was named editorial brand of the year by the International Building Press and business publication of the year at the Professional Publishers Association's annual awards for independent publishers.
Following his untimely death last summer, Marcus was posthumously given a lifetime achievement award by the British Society of Magazine Editors in December.
And we are hoping for more gongs soon, with Dezeen shortlisted for several accolades in the coming months.
