That's an (unfinished) open beta of the next SmashingMag. Something looks weird? Report a bug on GitHub or via email. Beware of cats.
Yay, you're all set! Thanks for setting up the password — and welcome to your personal dashboard. It goes without saying: we care about your privacy and will keep your data safe.
Did you know that we have a Smashing Membership — a digital subscription for professionals who deeply care about their craft? As a Member, for just $3 a month, you can save $50 on webinars, books, printed magazine, conferences and workshops. It also features 56 cats. You can peek inside for free, you know.
Purchasing a book or ticket might not sound like a big deal, but it is a big deal for us. We sincerely thank you for your kind support and trust. You really do know how to make a cat happy.

Smashing Membership is a digital subscription for our lovely community. With webinars, books, a new printed magazine and hefty discounts, it's a bundle for professionals who deeply care about their craft. Starting from $3 a month, with 56 cats. Ah, you can peek inside for free — no strings attached!
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!
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.

Thanks for getting so far, and hopefully see you in some part of the world soon! Boooo-yah!
Every now and again we add free goodies in here as a little token of appreciation for your continuous support over the years. Feel free to share these goodies with your collegues, friends or total strangers.
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!
Every month we conduct a new webinar that every member of the community is encouraged to participate for free. You can also download recordings of all previous webinars if you couldn't make it for some reason.
You won't find any fluff nor theory in our eBooks — just practical advice and hands-on techniques that you can apply to your day-to-day work right away. Obviously, the books are available in all fancy eBook formats — ePUB, Amazon Kindle and PDF.
Noticed any technical issues with the book? Let us know and will fix it right away!

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.
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!
