The Designer Pages Media Story
Launched in 2008, 3rings is a weblog devoted to uncovering and sharing the latest and greatest products in Architecture and Design. Otto was founded in 2008 by Jean Lin as a daily source of news, inspiration and insight for the A+D community.
Together, the two blogs serve as the flagship sites for Designer Pages Media, the editorial component of Designer Pages, the fastest growing social media property in A+D.
