Smashing Magazine

Quality matters.

We care about content, and we care about getting things done right. We never wanted to be a huge enterprise: our team is small, but it’s a truly wonderful team of people who really care about what they do. Passionate and dedicated. Honest and respectful. Professional but informal. Quirky and personal. We don’t seek first-class ninja developers nor certified editors; we seek team players who share our values. Our doors are always open to hard-working and passionate people, with or without experience.

In fact, we don’t see Smashing Magazine as a huge publishing house, but rather as a friendly, approachable, open-minded platform for everybody in the industry to voice their opinion and share what they’ve learned.

Through our articles, digital books, job openings, conferences and membership, we are committed to nourishing productivity, improving design and development skills and finessing the work-life balance. Getting better, together, by learning from each other — that’s the spirit that has been our mantra for all these years.

Advertising on Smashing Magazine

Yep, we use ad-blockers as well, but we gotta keep the servers running, you know. We don’t have much advertising, but the few spots we have do help us pay the bills. In fact, we work with advertisers that share our values and that we are happy to support. We’d love to offer some limited ad spots to you as well. Ah, and if you need numbers: our Alexa Traffic Rank: 4.389 and we have a devoted community exceeding 1 Mio. Twitter followers worldwide.
