Pre-Order Your Smashing Book #4 Now: “New Perspectives On Web Design”

It’s that time of the year again: We’ve started working on a brand new Smashing Book! The book will be as ambitious as it is beautiful — a unique, extraordinary artefact, filled with valuable insight for Web designers and developers.


The Smashing Book #4 consists of two separate hardcover books, neatly packaged into one slipcase. The covers are designed by illustrator Anna Shuvalova.

The Smashing Book #4: New Perspectives on Web Design will consist of two hardcover books, “Coding” and “Design,” each with approximately eight chapters, both neatly packaged into one slipcase. New Perspectives will have practical tips on current practices and common design problems. We strongly believe in print and in the benefits of tangible books. And this time, we’d like to invite you to join us as we embark on the journey of publishing!

New Perspectives On Coding And Design

The book will feature valuable insight into large-scale projects, adaptive interfaces, customer support, user psychology and typography. We will also uncover smart front-end strategies, obscure back-end techniques and find out what it takes to improve performance for faster and more robust websites and apps.

We’ve assembled a remarkable line-up of authors for the book. All of them are well-respected designers and developers who will share their practical insights, design strategies and hands-on tools as they explore new perspectives in Web design today.
