Ok, so I’m not talking about the 1980 Mike Hodges film… Although I could… for hours. Max Von Sidow is the campest evil deathlord to grace the silver screen ever. It’s a fact.

Anyway, the point of this post is to share some great flash website links (a-ha, you see the tenuous link now?!) that I have come across in the past couple of days whilst doing some research. There’s not much more to say really other than it still amazes me the great stuff designers are doing with flash. The innovation in some of the stuff I’ve been seeing is staggering and very impressive.

The sites I’m sharing all offer something, whether it be smart use of audio, innovative navigation or great design. What they all share, in my opinion, is a strong balance between innovation and technology with great content. The user experience and the way in which they interface with the site is key to their coolness.

If any of you know of some great flash sites please share the love.

  1. Well cool sites there. Thanks for the linx.

    Screenvader is unbelievable. Get something this rich mixed in with just about any other media offering (like your employer’s video) and you’ve got one hell of a rich web destination for your audience.

    Later.

  2. I think the http://www.martin-h.com is one of the most innovative uses of flash in an artistic context. It made me smile so many times I’ve lost count.

    I think with a lot of these kinds of sites it’s about creating a magic trick as often as possible to keep people along for the ride. If each page has within it some sort of mechanism or ‘magic trick’ if you will, I think it keeps the users attention and lets you then lead them to content off of the back of this technique. A great example of this is the infamous http://www.a-to-s.co.uk Mercedes flash website. It keeps you watching just to see what trick you are going to show next.
