Smashing Book #4 — New Perspectives on Web Design

Book Description

Written by well-respected designers and developers, the 4th Smashing Book contains lots of actionable takeaways that will help you in your daily routine. Think of it as a reliable playbook for issues that keep following you in every project. This book is for you because you’ll discover plenty of valuable, time-saving techniques that will improve your workflow right away.

The concept of the Smashing Book 4 is focused around practical techniques, strategies and approaches that haven't been thoroughly discussed and adopted by the community just yet. We’d like to challenge you to look beyond what's usually done.

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