Machens.com Web Banners

Machens.com Digital Advertising, Flash Animation The challenge was to create an animated web banner that communicated the wealth of inventory available at machens.com and attract online shoppers. This was accomplished using After Effects for the rolling number animation in the first frame, Photoshop to edit the screen shot of the Google search and Flash to bring everything together. ActionScript 3.0 is used to repeat the sequence twice before allowing it to stop on the call to action.

Global First Responder’s Flash

Global First Responder Website Design & Flash Animation The Challenge Navigating the world is hard enough when you have GPS, constellations and other tracking systems. On the web though, all you have is your screen and mouse (or touch pad or finger, etc.). So finding a solution for navigating the world online was the biggest challenge for GlobalFirstResponder.com. The Solution Since we can’t navigate the three dimensional world with a pop-up hologram, a map with the ability to zoom in and navigate between regions seemed like the next best thing. The entire system was developed in Adobe Flash. Pop-up labels and hover effects grab viewers and add to the user experience. Users are able to click on a region to zoom-in and see the countries within. A navigation tab expands to display all regions so users don’t have to zoom-out to the world-view to navigate to another region. Labels pop-up to display the names of regions and countries. When a user clicks on an individual country, a lightbox opens to display specific information. Viewers can find information about the government (or lack-of) in power, see stories from fellow responders who have visited, view images from the field and other helpful tools to help inform them about traveling there. This project was completed during my time at MayeCreate Design. The website has since been updated, but still features the flash navigation created under art direction from Monica Pitts.  Navigate the World Click a through the regions in need and countries inside them.
