ArkiBee is a new online publication dedicated primarily to creative support professionals who work closely with architectural firms, property developers, engineering companies, building contractors and product manufacturers to realise their designs.
HOW IS ARKIBEE DIFFERENT?
There are many architectural and design publications out there. They primarily focus on the completed buildings and their designers. ArkiBee has a different twist: it prioritises the opinions of creative support professionals who collaborate with architectural and design practices.
It concentrates on the process and methods of design team members rather than the end results. Yet in ArkiBee you will surely see images and read stories about projects as told by creative support teams.
WHY ONLY INTERVIEWS?
Currently Interviews conducted with creative support people, consultants and directors of external services form the core of ArkiBee.
In the near future news, articles and events will be published here.
ArkiBee will also publish the latest works by architectural photographers, CGI rendering agencies, graphic designers, marketing professionals, engineers and consultants as case studies.
CAN I CONTRIBUTE?
Certainly! Right now we are communicating with many professionals in the industry and you can be one of them. But you don’t need to be contacted. Send us your press releases or request to be interviewed.
Just fill out the form to find out how you can be part of this exciting concept.
