I ran across this website today and wanted to share it with you. The site is all done in Flash which is totally against what we believe in. I just wanted to share with you what I thought of it.

The site, at first, is confusing and difficult to navigate. Major turn-off. but when you learn how to move around in the site, its quite a refreshing change to what I'm used to. Being a designer, I'm always looking for ways to break out of the norm and serve up something that takes the user out of the box, but still maintain effective usability.

Dont misunderstand what I'm saying. This site is very flawed when it comes to ADA and SEO and basic usability and could use some major text size increases. I'm just expressing how it was a refreshing change from the norm, and in the end, a good experience for me as a designer.

Doesn't take too long to get

Doesn't take too long to get the hang of using and have to admit that it's interesting enough to play around with.

Overall though I despise this sort of site it's not web, don't care how accessible it might be or how good a bunch of designers they are as that is all it's really about. Flash is a shortcut for graphic designers to showcase their artistic talents while not having to get their hands dirty with real coding; still wish I could stuff like that Smile

I agree. I am not very hip

I agree. I am not very hip on that sort of site, but I did enjoy rummaging through the images, and the site was easy to figure out.

Thanks for the interesting link.
