idf platform opportunities

Advertising on IDF allows your brand to reach a premium and influential audience that is passionate about design, creativity, technology, sustainability, innovation, and above all, building a global community. We’ve developed a collaborative publishing platform that enables the design community to connect, create, and share everything about great design. As a result, IDF is a multi-platform lifestyle brand, on a mission to identify and explore design concepts that help our community live better lives in the modern world. Design is considered one of the most effective elements for brands, as it holds the power to completely transform its perspective or industry and influence a consumer.


IDF audience represents an affluent, educated, influential crowd that is passionate about modern design and the transformative power it has on our lives. That’s why IDF offers these consumers and design professionals a guide to explore concepts and destinations on their own terms while learning about trends and topics of global impact.


IDF’s publishing platform offers unique and native opportunities for your brand to reach our network of consumers, trade professionals, and brands, every day, wherever they are. Learn more: [email protected]

Digital Advertising

Your ad can benefit from over 150,000 monthly visits, with measured engagement wherever it appears. Your brand can shine on our homepage, target visitors on our content sections (BUILT, IDEAS, LIFE), join us for a takeover, or simply float freely around the site (ROP). Each ad unit will be programmed based on your goals, and always paired with alike and qualified brands (as we do not serve ads from third parties; e.g. Ad Sense).

Native Content

Native Stories, written by IDF in collaboration with your brand, are a content-rich authentic opportunity to tell your story with great writing, beautiful photography, and engaging videos.


The IDF team of editors (and your account manager) will work collaboratively with your brand and your team to create custom native stories to present your brand’s content authentically in a seamless IDF experience. Stories will be written by IDF and published to the IDF audience with your approval and according to your strategy.

Product Posts

Products can be showcased beautifully through our online shopping experience (as affiliates or hosted by us), or in featured articles (which can include reviews, demo videos, interviews, launch announcements, social/newsletter giveaways or other branded content). Products can also be given prominence in the placement in our store by way of takeovers and periodic spotlights as well as the newsletter and social media shops (Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest). In any case, all product posts can be enabled with a button to point to a brand’s destination of choice. Any photo from the IDF platform can be tagged with the product for increased discoverability. Contact us to explore what will work best for your product.

IDF Social Channels

Partner with us and engage 150,000+ IDF followers across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and YouTube. Our team will assist yours in crafting compelling, customized content to create impact, while aligning with the IDF brand.


Otherwise, we’ll provide specific instructions, insights, and guidance on how to develop and submit your creations. By promoting your brand or content among our community, you will be engaging a global audience that is passionate about design and innovation, and we’ll provide laser-focused metrics to provide the highest possible return.
