Smashing Print #1: Ethics & Privacy

For a long time, we wanted to create a printed magazine that hasn’t existed before. Not a magazine about fleeting design trends or ever-changing frameworks, but topics that would make us all think, and remain useful as time passes by. A magazine exploring topics that often get lost in a myriad of blog posts out there. Written by the community for the community. Jump to table of contents.

We kick off with an issue exploring topics very close to our hearts — ethics, privacy and security, because these issues reach into all our lives, from our personal use of the web through to the advanced applications we develop. We look into tracking, advertising, GDPR and privacy law, data protection and addictive interfaces. We explore how to integrate privacy-driven decisions into our workflows by default and abandon dark UI patterns for good. Download a free PDF preview (3 MB).

All Smashing Members ($5 per month) get the eBook for free, and Smashers ($9 plan) also get a free printed copy shipped to the doorsteps. For additional copies, a discount of $10 applies (obviously!).

We kick off with a 60-pages issue exploring topics very close to our hearts — ethics, privacy and security. We explore the usual suspects — tracking, advertising, privacy law (e.g. GDPR), data protection and addictive interfaces. What follows is a collection of essays which sit very well together, yet tackle different aspects of the issues at hand. You may not agree with all of them, but we hope they'll make you think.
