Hardboiled Web Design has a new home at Smashing Magazine

The sudden closure of Five Simple Steps came as a shock to a lot of people, not least authors like me who are forced to decide on new homes for their books with no notice.

For me at least, the choice was easy and I’m so very pleased to say that Hardboiled Web Design is now available in the Smashing Magazine shop.

You can buy the digital bundle of ePUB and PDF formats for a new, low price. Previously £16.00/€19.00 (+VAT in the UK), now just £10.60/€12.90 including taxes. If you haven’t read Hardboiled Web Design yet, there’s never been a better time.

Buying a printed copy, by far the best experience of Hardboiled Web Design, isn’t possible right now, but it’s coming. I’ll let you know when that’s available again too.


I’m available for hire to consult on and design products and websites. Based in North Wales, I travel regularly to work with clients world-wide.

Available from January 2020
