History and personnelEdit

Design42Day began as a recreational blog in 2007 by Riccardo Capuzzo, the Art Director and Editor-in-Chief.[2] Patrick Abbattista, who joined the project in 2009 as Co-Founder and Head of Sales and Marketing, left the company in 2015 to launch DesignWanted, currently one of the most influential voices on Instagram about Architecture & Design. While Camilla Rettura hold the position of Executive Editor from 2012 till 2014.[3] In 2012, Design42Day contributed to the foundation of the “Bocconi Students 4 Design” association in Bocconi University and participated in the launching of their first event with Italian designer Fabio Novembre.[4]

Design42Day’s online magazine focuses on five different areas of design, including fashion, industrial design, visual design, transportation design and architecture.
