What is the Dutch Design Press Desk?
The press desk is a database of press-folders containing up to date press releases and high-res images from Dutch designers, labels brands present at the Milan Design Week. It helps journalists and editors access high quality and up-to-date press content in the most convenient way. 

The content is collected before the internationals design fairs Milan Design Week. Dutch Design Press Desk communicates all new uploads to our large and growing international database of press contacts. 

Journalists, bloggers and publishers no longer need to contact individual designers and brands to collect professional press content; they now can download press kits directly from the press desk database. The Dutch Design Press Desk is an initiative of Connecting the Dots and was successfully launched for the Milan Design Week in 2015.

Already at the first edition in 2015, 300 press packages were downloaded; on average each press-kit was downloaded 17 times; among them large internationally acknowledged newspapers, design magazine and blogs.
