Core77 is an online blog dedicated to the practise and produce of the field of industrial design. The site began as the graduate thesis of Stuart Constantine and Eric Ludlum in their final year at Brooklyn, New York's Pratt Institute. It serves as a practical resource for students, practitioners and fans of the field, as well as a venue for essays and reports on the topic of design in general. Historically, most of the magazine's content has been produced by volunteer contributors.
The site was launched in March 1995 and has been updated on a monthly basis since. It was first hosted at Interport, an early ISP in New York City, later it moved to its own domain.
Core77's popularity as a general design destination for the public has grown in recent years, leading to references of the site in mainstream publications such as The New York Times and PC Magazine
Past and current contributors to Core77 include notable design figures such as designer Karim Rashid, Museum of Modern Art curator Paola Antonelli, user-centered design advocate Donald Norman and Steven Heller, art director and author.
