Everyone knows that Macromedia Flash makes a Web site fun; Macromedia Showcase: Flash Interface Design shows how Flash makes sites more effective. Author and Web expert Darcy DiNucci dissects the interfaces of 12 exemplary Flash sites, showing how to use the technology in practical, innovative ways to make a site more usable and inspirational. While other Flash books focus on mastering basic Flash skills or advanced ActionScripting, this book wraps itself around the indispensable thinking that must happen before coding begins: how to make the site you're designing work for your client and its audience. Copious four-color illustrations reveal the intricacies of each site's design and how it functions. Detailed sidebars highlight innovative pieces of code. Along the way, you'll also learn Flash-specific interface design and production techniques. If you want to use Flash to create effective Web sites, learn from the masters in this showcase of fine design. Published by Macromedia Press, the official source of Flash information for designers and developers of all levels.
