The site began as the graduate thesis of Stuart Constantine and Eric Ludlum in their final year at Brooklyn, New York's Pratt Institute.[1] The site was launched in March 1995 and has been updated on a monthly basis since. It was first hosted at Interport, an early ISP in New York City; later it moved to its own domain.

Core77's popularity as a general design destination for the public has grown in recent years, leading to references of the site in The New York Times,[2][3] Fast Company,[4] and PC Magazine.[5] The site also hosts an annual Core77 Design Awards competition to reward excellence in the field of design.[6][7][8][9]
