Smashing Magazine continues its tradition and releases another great book. This time it's the new Smashing Book #5: Real-Life Responsive Web Design. It's jam packed with theory and practices all centered around responsive web design with almost 600 pages of content that can make any professional drool.
In the previous posts I've babbled a lot about how I want to focus more on product sketching and being part of UXMag's "The future of Wearable technologies" contest winners meant the perfect opportunity. Why? Because I received this precious gem: Drawing Ideas by Mark Baskinberg and William Bardel.
I've been a fan of Smashing Magazine since I've discovered them back in 2007. From that day until now I've kept a close eye on their progress and enjoyed every resource they made available. I even tried little by little to contribute to their mission: designed calendar wallpapers, contributed to the Smashing Community poster, expressed my opinions for the Smashing Usability Panel and many more. But the one thing I appreciate the most is the fact that the SM team knows how to give back to the community that supports them. Entering the stage is the Smashing Book - a collection of ideas, opinions and practices tailored to make us embrace design and remind us why we do the things we do. Smashing Book #4 was launched, I bought it and now... I'm going to review it.
