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

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.

Tom M.:

Beautiful on the outside, packed with knowledge on the inside

First of all: I have the printed edition and I must say that they really look great on my bookshelf, never regretted going "oldschool".
While "Smahing Book #1" may be considered not as up to date as the others, it still holds great value to me as there are some basic things that didn´t change since then.
