Smashing Book #3+#3⅓: Redesign The Web (eBook Bundle)

Quick Overview

Unlike its predecessors, the new Smashing Books #3 and #3⅓ have the main theme: Redesign. The books are a professional guide on how to redesign websites, but they also introduce a whole new mindset for progressive Web design. They challenge you to think differently about your work and will change the way you design websites forever.

"While the design of the book is certainly nice, it is really the content we have come here for. Just like the success of a website is largely tied to the quality of its content, the value of this book is also dependent on its content and the authors and editors have delivered a quality book worthy of space on your bookshelf."
"…not only is this a good book and an enjoyable read, but it is an important book that really can change the way we design, or redesign, for the web."

Mr. Jeremy Marc Girard — Pumpkin King

A detailed look at the business and technical side of redesign is followed by a comprehensive overview of advanced HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript techniques that you can use today. You will get useful advice on innovative UX techniques, learn about the peculiarities of mobile context in Web design and discover useful Photoshop techniques for the new Web. You’ll explore a practical hands-on guide to a bulletproof workflow for responsive Web design. Finally, you will also dive deep into emotional design, content strategy and storytelling.

Smashing Book #3⅓ – The Extension (eBook, 160 pages)

With Web design, we can do much more than inform the audience. The power of storytelling and content strategy is in creating engaging, emotional connections that transcend their platforms. In this book, we will review emerging navigation design patterns and understand how to employ a content strategy — which is an important process, often underestimated and dependent on many factors. A case study of Smashing Magazine’s responsive redesign beautifully illustrates what this approach could look like in practice.

"This book is worth buying and reading for yourself. It really covers many aspects of modern website production in eleven in-depth chapters. There will likely be a few you don’t care for — we all have our own tastes — but I’d be surprised if any genuinely leave you disappointed given the chance. I was quite prepared to write something less positive, the first Smashing Book didn’t excite me, but this one very much did."
