Smashing Book #3 (eBook, 340 pages)
The Web has changed a lot. Our tools now are advanced, and browsers are highly capable. We are facing new challenges and embracing new technologies. These changes require us to reconsider how we approach Web design. In fact, it’s time to rethink, to recode, to redesign.
"This book was written by many well know designers and entrepreneurs who share their passion and who don’t only do it for money but for love. This book in my opinion is the best reference book for any designer as it will give you a great deal of references to support your arguments with potential clients and give you the psychological advantage of what your clients want and need. I strongly recommend this book to any Web Designer, Entrepreneur and any Creative Passionate Artist." Marios Lublinski — Dessign.net

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." David Bushell — In his Blog
