Submissions + General Inquiries:

Over the past few years, Design*Sponge has changed in scope. We no longer cover products, but we warmly welcome submissions in the following areas: Home/Studio/Shop Tours, Business Features, Makeovers, DIY projects, Recipes, Books and Creative Projects.

At Design*Sponge we try our best to showcase fresh, original content. As such, priority is given to products and stories that have not yet been covered online. Please indicate if your submission has already appeared online or been submitted elsewhere.

Please use the form below or email submissions to SUBMISSIONS [at] DESIGNSPONGE [dot] com with the subject line “Submission”. Please do not send emails with attachments totaling more than 1MB.
