We follow a strict rule of principles and guidelines before hitting that "Publish" button. We don't have any hidden advertisements. We don't participate in any kind of affiliate marketing. We respect the rights of authors, designers, photographers and developers.
We care about quality content. We never wanted to be a big publishing house: 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.
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.
We don’t have much advertising on our site but a few spots that help us pay the bills. We look for advertisers who provide a product or service that fits the needs of a web designer or developer.

All articles are carefully curated, edited and prepared according to the high standards set in the magazine’s Publishing Policy. These guidelines are continually revised and updated to ensure that the quality of the published content is never compromised. Smashing Magazine is always expanding to provide more quality content for professionals working in Web design.
The Smashing Team consists of Rachel Andrew, editor-in-chief of Smashing Magazine, Vitaly Friedman, co-founder of Smashing Magazine, our CEOs Markus Seyfferth and Inge Emmler, our senior editor Iris Lješnjanin, and Cosima Mielke who’s not only writing and editing articles, but also producing our eBooks. Last but not least, we’re very honored and happy to have Ricardo Gimenes on board as well!
Before an article is published, it’s reviewed by independent reviewers — respected members of the design community who provide feedback to authors and review technical details. We are very grateful for the fantastic work of our Experts Panel, and the magazine wouldn’t have the same quality without their profound expertise and support.
