Around end of October of last year, Vitaly Friedman of Smashing Magazine asked me if I would be interested in contributing to the new Smashing Book #3. There were a few options on how I could contribute, but since my days were already filled till around the Summer of 2012, it was clear to me that I could only find the time to design the cover.
