NYCxDESIGN: The Magazine

Call for Entries

The second edition of NYCxDESIGN: The Magazine launches this Spring, and we want you to be part of it. Members of New York City’s creative community are invited to submit their inspirations, collections, or tools by March 15 for a chance to be published in the first and only magazine created entirely by NYC’s most creative minds.


Here's how:


What is the one tool you can’t do without?

Whether it’s a special pen that you draw with, or a software platform that unlocks possibilities for you, we want to know how your tools help you realize your vision.

Send us a high-resolution image of the tool you love, along with a couple of sentences about why it is indispensable to you.

Accepting entries through March 15.



What do you have a passion for collecting?

Show us your most prized stash of possessions—the things that appeal to you so much that you couldn’t stop at having just one of them. Whether it’s your bookshelf or the knickknacks on your desk, we want to see what you treasure.

Send us a high-resolution, well-composed image of your collection, and tell us why it speaks to you.

Accepting entries through March 15.



This Open Call is sponsored by Material Bank. Use a Material Bank digital palette* to create and share your inspiration.

How do you collect ideas and references?

Send us a picture of your mood board, inspiration board, Pinterest board, storyboard, journal, or any other surface where you gather your thoughts.

We’re looking for high-resolution, well-composed images that show us how you stay inspired.

Accepting entries through March 15.


*Sign-up for a free Material Bank account here. Learn more about creating a palette here. You will not be permitted to order physical samples, as the inspiration project is for digital submission only.
