  • Smashing TV: Interactive Web Animation With SVG, Cassie Evans

    SVG is more than just a Vector image format. It provides a great bridge between design and front-end development, and works as a fun starting point to play around with other web technologies. Let's explore the exciting world of SVG animation together. We’ll start with design, explore some animation and finish up with some interaction, as interaction is what makes motion on the web so much fun. 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 in the past 100 days (May 21, 2019):

  • Supported local communities in Minsk (Belarus), Kyiv (Ukraine), Vilnius (Lithuania), Gdansk (Poland), Berlin (Germany),
  • Ran Berlin Design Campus with Projector team from Kyiv, Ukraine — an event for Ukrainian students to connect with the creative scene in Berlin, Germany,
  • Vitaly taught at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences — supported by Smashing Members,
  • Released Art Direction for the Web by Andrew Clarke — available to Smashing Members free of charge,
  • Released Vitaly’s “Responsive Design Interface Bootcamp Slides,” a newly-updated 720-slide deck dedicated to all things responsive interface design patterns,
  • Currently, 47 Smashing TV webinars are available — recently on privacy, WebPageTest, accessibility and art direction,
  • Had all new webinars professionally transcribed and published,
  • Switched to using the Zoom platform for webinars because it has better video quality,
  • New discounts for Balsamiq and screencasts on Dev environment setup by Simon Owen.

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

Next steps:

  • Finish the first issue of Smashing Print,
  • Schedule new Smashing TV webinars,
  • 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.

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