How to Submit


What I want:

Designy things is looking for objects that can be either crafty or techy, as long as they are well-made and functional. If it’s sustainable, that’s a plus. I prefer items that are new to the market — or soon to be introduced. We will include link backs to company sites as a courtesy to readers. This site will not accept products or payment in exchange for publication. Please do not send unsolicited samples or gifts and please check first if you are sending something for me to test out.

Things I will cover: Handheld accessories, modern jewelry, modern personal accessories, tabletop, kitchen gadgets, kids toys, baby toys, small decor items, desktop accessories, tools, humanitarian aids.

Things I won’t cover: Large clothing items, furniture, lighting, building products, materials, antiques, art.

Please send a short description of your product (or the official press release if you have it) in the body of the email as well as an attachment, along with low-res images of the product(s). If you have a link where I can download the free, high-res images that’s great. Otherwise, I will request high-res images if I am interested. If you don’t hear from me within 4 weeks of submission, please feel free to send a follow up email. While I can’t currently pay for photography, I will gladly list any photographer credits, so please include them.
