Here's What You Missed Recently

We don't believe in donations. Instead, with Membership, we provide value that stays relevant over time — it pays off after 30 days already! “Unlikely”, you say? Well, here's what you missed out over the last 30 days alone:

If that's not good enough, what is? Seriously. Don't miss out next time!

Here's How We Spent The Money

We believe in open, diverse, accessible web. And we want to reward people doing great work. That's why with your help we actively support community events and projects, and people behind them. Here's how we spent the money over the last 30 days alone:

Just like every month, we also reserved 2 diversity scholarship tickets for our next Smashing Conference and acquired 1 new mentor for the Smashing Mentorship program. You made it happen. So thank you.

It’s Jimmy’s Birthday Today!

Some people stay friends for a while, others forever. Jimmy Kondruev, a freelancing designer from Kiev, Ukraine, has been around with Smashing for the last 11 years, and today he's celebrating his 34th birthday. Happy Birthday, Jimmy! You are quite smashing indeed!

Smashing Magazine Print

Print is dead? Think again! With Smashing Magazine Print, we're rediscovering a fine reading experience of a printed magazine. No ads or fill content — only curated editorial content, designed to stay relevant long-term.

We're almost there! The Issue #3, fully dedicated to design systems, pattern libraries and all that malarkey, is being printed and will be on its way next week.

While waiting for the new issue, you can take a cup of cappuccino, grab previous issues and check that article you've always wanted to get through:

Missed previous print issues? We've got bundle discounts for latecomers. Get last 3 issues for $39 — with free shipping, of course. You might want to check reviews of previous issues first though.

Cat Is Happy!

Excited and energized from its adventures last week, this week, the Smashing Cat is feeling like exploring something new, obscure and utterly complicated. A target for the week: cooking an authentic Italian pizza. Can you suggest any recipes?

There is always something magical in learning an entirely new skill. Why don't you try something different this weekend? Design a poster? A book cover? Or a packaging for a fancy new bottle of milk? The Cat would appreciate it, too!
