It's Smashing! Media Website
SMASHING MAGAZINE http://www.smashingmagazine.com
One of my favorite online resources for the past few years is Smashing Magazine. This is an online magazine that is WP powered that has really shown the power and ease of wordpress. This site has amazing SEO and has really built a great resource of information and ideas for all designers out there. So, who is the audience? Me! Any designer, developer, project manager that wants to stay on the cutting edge of design. This would be your one stop shop. It has great links to free downloads for fonts, source codes, samples and even tutorials.
Their business goals for this site is to continue to build their SEO. I imagine that they get an enormous amount of traffic that they could then advertise along the right of their site which is a great way for them to continue to be a reliable source and make money at the same time. It is a great networking tool and a fantastic way for designers to get their work showcased. This site has a great platform that is already bringing in a huge audience base and a constant flow of high paying advertisers like Getty Images and Adobe.
Just another screenshot of Smashing Magazine because this was an interesting commentary about using Flash for websites… which made me think of Kathy, and her love for Flash.
