History

Founded in December 2006 by Brazilian designer Fabio Sasso and his business partner and friend at Zee, Fabiano Meneghetti, Abduzeedo follows Sasso’s own experimentations and records his abduction by the world of design, which set the theme for the blog.

What began as a means for backup after an ugly robbery, is now one of the design world’s most sought after blog for inspiration and tutorials. Abduzeedo draws in more than a hundred thousand design enthusiasts a day and almost three million a month. We have contributors from Brazil and the USA, and readers from all over the globe.

"The blog's name means abducted in Portuguese. I changed its spelling from "abduzido" to "abduzeedo" so I could add the name of the company I founded in 2004, ZEE.
