Welcome to our family

Insider is the American magazine of global contemporary design. Founded in 1993, Insider covers the worlds of architecture, art, design, fashion, and travel, with a focus on how these fields shape and are shaped by contemporary culture. Through incisive writing, engaging visuals, and an emphasis on process and craftsmanship, Surface inspires, informs, and entertains readers, pointing them to the next big ideas in global design. Surface magazine is published six times per year, with each issue dedicated to a particular theme, while surfacemag.com provides daily updates on the latest design news and long-form storytelling. In addition to a New York–based team, Surface counts experts such as David Basulto of ArchDaily, Bettina Korek of For Your Art, Ben Pundole of A Hotel Life, and Valerie Steele of the Museum at FIT as regular contributors.
