Happy fifth birthday to us!

Five years ago we launched the digital edition of Mark Boulton’s A Practical Guide to Designing for the Web and with that Five Simple Steps was born. Since then we’ve racked up another 23 (23!) books, as well as five video workshops, with plenty more in the pipeline.

We’re celebrating turning five the best way we know – by having a big sale! You’ll find between 10% and 40% off our titles across the site for the whole month of March. It’s a perfect time to treat yourself to one of our books at a price worth celebrating.

Something looks different…

If you’ve visited us in the past few days you’ll have noticed that our site looks a little different. We’ve been tinkering away for weeks, speaking to our users, revisiting our content, and exploring new features. We’re really proud to show you the results.

We’ve brought in some beautiful new photography for our products so you can see exactly what you’re getting, as well as the ability to create customer accounts so you can get to your order information and access your downloads whenever you like. You’ll also find a handy shipping calculator on the cart page, and a new IA that makes finding our products even easier. It’s all been done to make your experience better. We hope you like it.

It hasn’t been completely smooth running though – we’ve had to remove the videos section for a bit while we work out a few bugs, but they’ll be available again soon. You can still access any videos you’ve bought from us through your customer account.

Here’s to many more birthdays!
