Holiday Reading with Disegno


7 August 2020

With the summer holidays upon us, Disegno will be taking a short break and reducing the number of stories we post on the website for the next fortnight. In the meantime, why not order Lockdown Paper, browse through the physical journal in one of our many stockists, or catch up on some longer reading on Disegno's page on Medium.

Following a spring in which the design world was dominated by Covid-19, we’ve reached the height of the summer holiday season in need of a rest. As a result, the Disegno team is taking a short break and we will be posting fewer news pieces on this website for the next fortnight.

This is a good opportunity to order the Disegno Lockdown Paper, which features a number of longer essays and shorter observations on phenomena from the recent Covid-19 lockdown.

Or why not familiarise yourself with the longer-form pieces from older issues of the quarterly journal? You can access all back issues digitally on Disegno’s page on Issuu for a small fee, or else order physical copies from our online store.

We also publish a number of stories from back issues on this website. The most recent features to check out include author Will Wiles’s essay ‘A Hotel is a Plot’ and Disegno’s editor Oli Stratford’s The Tourists on NASA’s Mars rover programme.

If you prefer another reading experience, Disegno also publishes a number of articles on Medium. Visit and follow Disegno’s Medium page for updates.

However, being a printed journal, we think that nothing beats the experience of picking up a physical copy. We are pleased that many of our stockists, based all around the world, have now opened again and are keen for your support after a challenging start to the year. So why not check out the following Disegno stockists in person (in alphabetical order according to location):
