Last semester I took an Intro to flash class and discovered all the amazing things that could be done in this tremendously versatile program. From basic animations and web pages to incredibly rich interactive web apps and games. It’s a program that is completely open to your imagination. Think it up, and you can do it…given you have the knowledge and AS3 coding experience needed. None the less, with a fairly basic knowledge, you can create some pretty awesome animations and web pages.
I am sure there is a lot of scripting going on here but it just shows you that if you can imagine it, flash can do it. From what I learned in Flash, with a little AS2, you can do a lot. I won’t get into the details of how to do this as that would be an entire semesters worth of information. But I am fairly confident I know how they did it and what kinda scripts were used.
Flash is a Wonderful program!
One of my favorite things to do on the internet is (aside from porn) to browse through designer, marketing company and advertising agency sites. These sites usually have some of the most inspiring designs…because they have to. They are not only showcasing their work, they are showcasing themselves and what they can do. Fortyseven media is a great example of one of those sites. I really like the look and flow of the site. The graphics, color and over all style just really seem to work. It’s easy to read, easy to look at and most important, easy to navigate. There is a definite style to the site and their work that I like…grungy, old and weathered. “Don’t visit them, if you want average!”
Alright, I am new at this “blogging” thing so…bare with me as I figure out how to use it.
First off I want to state my opposition to the word “Blog”. I was never contacted regarding this matter. Did no one have a better name out in the internet universe? It sounds like something that happens in the bathroom. There should have been a vote!
My first post is on a site of inspiration. Smashing Magazine.
It’s a great resource for Print and Web Designers and offers up tons of inspiration to boot. There is so much to see and learn and you will undoubtedly find something interesting on their site.
