Oliver Shaw

Oliver Shaw is a London-based Flash designer. He was captivated by Flash from the start because it was radically different from the HTML Web sites he was developing and surfing. While earning a degree in multimedia design at Staffordshire University in northern England, he experimented with ActionScript and joined the rapidly growing Flash community. He then applied his Flash skills in a commercial environment and took a position as Senior Flash Designer at a small London agency. He is now focused on the challenges of usability, information architecture, and experience design. You can see Oli's latest Flash experiments at
