What’s In The Smashing Book 3?

Unlike its predecessors, the new Smashing Book #3 has a theme: Redesign. It is a professional guide on how to redesign websites and it also introduces a whole new mindset for progressive Web design. In this ever-changing Web design industry, the book challenges you to think differently about your work and will change the way you design websites forever.

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 appropriate Photoshop techniques. You’ll study 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.

Extra Book: Smashing Book #3⅓ — The Extension

Our authors have turned out to be much more productive than we anticipated and have produced more exciting chapters than one book could handle. Adding these chapters to the book would have increased its size and weight — and, hence, shipping cost — substantially.

Not wanting to withhold these chapters, we have decided to release them separately. We are proud to present an extra book, Smashing Book #3⅓ — The Extension, filled with four additional chapters of quick quality reading!

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.

Why The Theme Of Redesign?

The reason is simple. In recent years, the Web has changed a lot. The Web designer’s tools now are advanced, and browsers are highly capable. Designers have established clever coding and design techniques, and they are facing new challenges and embracing new technologies. These changes are fundamental and require us to reconsider how we approach Web design. It’s time to rethink and reinvent: it is time to redesign the Web.

But are we all prepared for this? How does responsive design fit into your workflow? What UX and mobile techniques do you follow when designing websites? And if you have a redesign project on the horizon, how do you approach it and work your way through it? This is what the Smashing Book #3 is all about: it explains what you need to know to create effective websites today, and what you need to know to be prepared for the future.

Exclusive Artwork and Design

The Smashing Book series has gotten a rather eye-catching facelift. The well-respected Belgian artist Veerle Pieters20 has taken on the significant task of putting together an innovative, bold cover design. And the result is bold indeed. Veerle’s styling of Smashing Magazine’s “S” reflects the many aspects that make up a Web designer’s workflow today.

If you have Smashing Books 1 and 2, you’ll know that animals play a distinct role — forming almost a tradition for the series. This time, we have asked the talented young illustrator Kate McLelland21 to illustrate the introductory pages for all of the chapters. Kate has been impressively creative in her designs; the theme of redesign has obviously shaped the tone of her artwork. Each chapter begins with an elaborate drop cap.

The letter S: A detail of a chapter illustration, designed by Kate McLelland.

Each illustration employs a different metaphor that relates to the accompanying chapter. Try to see what they all are once you get your hands on the book. Appropriately enough, when strung together, the drop caps spell out “Redesign the Web.” The composite style of the illustrations reflects how so many components have to come together for a successful redesign.

    Yes, all of the content has been written from scratch, and all of the chapters have been written exclusively for this book.
  • What’s this extra Smashing Book #3⅓?
    Our authors have turned out to be much more productive than we anticipated, coming up with more exciting chapters than one book could handle. Adding these chapters to the book would have increased the size and weight — and, hence, shipping cost — substantially. Not wanting to withhold these chapters, we have decided to release them separately. We are proud to present the Smashing Book #3⅓ — The Extension, four extra chapters of quick quality reading. Buy it as part of a bundle and save!

Your contact form doesn’t let me enter more than 420 characters, so I cannot describe what happened briefly. Please e-mail me as soon as possible so we can look into this.

    Ordered!
    Good to see that the book is slowly becoming bigger, the first ones were a bit on the small size (14x21cm) to read comfortably.
    Same goes with the recent redsign of the website, the new, 20px size Skolar font is soo much easier on the eyes.
    like some say: “16px is NOT big!”

    awesome ;) aaaand preodered! Thanks smashing team! I’m really looking forward to this book.

    But why do I have to pay in Dollar. I’m from Germany and it would be nice for the next time to pay in Euro;) because you’re also a German company.

    Ordered mine last week, can’t wait to get it. Smashing is the only blog I read everyday, quality content inside!

    @Alex : I had the same question for getting the name on the #3 Book, then I read again that article and saw : “We will contact you in March 2012 and ask you for the name you would like to have published within the book”.
    Hope it will answer your question ;)

    Great books. Got all three. A solid question though… how come there are a very minimum content space being dedicated to the Mobile UI/UX. It would be fantastic to have good very profound and well presented information on Mobile UI/UX best practices as much as there is on Design, and Web. Even if it’s an e-Book specifically on Mobile, it would be greatly welcomed. Mobile App Design and Mobile Web are a few of the many ways forward.

    Thanks.

    I am curious as to if people have received their books yet? I am a resident of Missouri, and if it was shipped May 3rd, it should have been here by now. I also can’t seem to find any status updates or such on the personal account page.
