  • Smashing TV: Inspired Design Decisions: Inspired by Pressing Matters Magazine
    with Andrew Clarke.

    When Andy Clarke went to art school, he imagined himself one day being a famous painter. Soon after arriving, he realized he was a terrible painter, but was good at printmaking and is still inspired by it today. In this second installment of Inspired Design Decisions, Andy will teach you how to expand your repertoire of layouts by combining more than one grid into a compound grid. He’ll also explain how to use CSS Shapes to create designs which feel dynamic and full of energy. Details


  • Smashing TV: Every Product Has A Voice
    with Benjamin Hersh.

    In this session, Benjamin Hersh, a product designer at *Dropbox*, will share simple guiding principles to help you design better with words. You'll explore lessons and inspiration in neuroscience, fairy tales, and examples from across the web. Details

That's What Members Say

Smashing Magazine has always been very supportive of the web community. Membership feels like a huge effort towards a strong, diverse community of people who care about their craft. Highly recommended for every web professional who wants to learn and connect — even those who don’t like cats.”

Here's How We Spent The Money

We believe in an open, diverse and accessible web. With your help, we want to reward people doing great work to make it happen. That’s why we actively support community events and projects, and people behind them. We want to keep things fully transparent, so here we’ll be reporting how we spend the money.

That’s what we’ve been doing over the last 100 days (Jan 11, 2019):

  • ran webinars on Internationalisation, Machine Learning, Designing with Ethics, State of the Web in South-East Asia, Designing with Ethics and Collecting User Data without Compromising Privacy. Members have free access to all the recordings.
  • Had all new webinars professionally transcribed and published,
  • released a new book: Form Design Patterns by Adam Silver,
  • released the videos from SmashingConf New York 2018,
  • Bruce spoke at Codemotion conference, Berlin,
  • …and at Codemotion, Milan,
  • we supported the public library in Vilinus, Lituania and shipped Smashing Books over to the Public Vilnius Library,
  • supported and subsidized an affordable workshop for UX Sofia in Sophia, Bulgaria in November 2018,
  • published a front-end performance checklist 2019,
  • participated in UX Designer’s Camp in Mokrin, Serbia and ran a workshop and mentoring sessions there,
  • and we had our first anniversary!

It’s all made possible with your contributions. You made it happen. So thank you.

Next steps:

  • Switch to using the Zoom platform for webinars because it has better video quality,
  • transcribe all future webinars, and aim to publish them with 48 hours of the webinar,
  • plan and run three new Smashing TV webinars each month,
  • coach new voices in the industry to speak at a meet-up or a conference,
  • support people who want to learn but can’t afford it with Smashing eBooks, webinars and learning material,
  • support web-related non-profit events and meetups.
  • Vitaly is working on a design school initiative in Kyiv, Ukraine,
  • in February, Vitaly will teach at the University of Applied Science in Amsterdam with Vasilis van Gemert (our author and friend),
  • Bruce will speak at Monki Gras 2019 about ‘Accessible Craft: Creating great experiences for everyone’,
  • we’ll continue to be fabulous and groovy.

Your support allows us to bring you great content, pay all our contributors fairly, and reduce advertising on the site. Thank you.
