Dexigner is a leading online portal for designers. It was noted in Forbes for being one of the top five sites for creatives.[3] The website covers a range of design topics, including product, graphic, identity, interior, and urban design, architecture, advertising, illustration, fashion and typography.

Dexigner is divided into five major sections: News, Directory,[4] Competitions, Events, and Maps.[5]

The News section of the website delivers the latest on design as news articles and blogs. With a comprehensive database of more than 15,000 active listings, the Directory section of the website features noted design organizations, firms, studios, designers, museums, galleries and magazines. Dexigner also publishes a bi-monthly e-newsletter, reaching more than 40,000 subscribers.[6]

The website uses its own in-house developed CMS to publish its content.

App[edit]

On July 6, 2009 Dexigner released its first mobile app for the iPhone and iPod Touch.[7][8] The free app offers on the move access to news, events, competitions and design related places - based on users' location.

Some of the features of the app include sharing articles through Twitter, Facebook or email, and the ability to call listings with one click or view their location on map.
