About The Design Emotive


The Design Emotive is a small but growing architecture and design digital publication. We share amazing architecture, including homes, cultural and civic, offices, cafes, landscape and much more. We also sit down with architects to learn about them, their story, their philosophies and ideas. We have a passion for sharing, we love promoting architecture and architects, and showing the world the value of good design.

The Design Emotive’s story starts back in 2015, long before it was known as The Design Emotive. Anthony Richardson opened up Instagram one day and created a second account, @victorianarchitecture, because he felt compelled to share the awesome architecture he was discovering whilst in architecture school. Not long after he renamed the account to @ArchitectureVictoria, and from there it started to grow. Then on the 9th of February, 2019, the publication was rebranded to what you see today. The rebrand not only allowed Anthony to expand beyond the borders of Victoria, but it was a much better reflection of the goals of the publication, which includes sharing emotive stories involving architecture.

We love telling stories, and that is why we have since started to delve into original content, particularly using video. Video has allowed us to truly capture the story, whether it’s hearing from an architect on how they got interested in architecture, or how the client feels every time they walk through their front door. We love capturing those moments!
