Straightline Bookmarks

Straightline bookmarks is my new place for findin great new sites, especially Flash, since The FWA is showcasing mostly not so interesting stuff anymore. I don’t say The FWA lost it’s prime or anything, just that sites there are usually very visually and experiencially usual.

What sites you visit for daily cup of refreshment sites on the web? Seems like many of the old bookmarked sites that collected nice Flash works are not working anymore.

Straightline is a Matoshi Goto, web designer and programmer from Japan. On his homepage there are few other interesting sections including his work, artistic works by others and hmmm.. nice looking girls.

Flash SuperSites : TommyTV

So how one flash website can be called supersite. Lets go step by step :

1. Purpose of Flash … If Flash site is being done in Flash there must be a good reason why it is done in Flash. Main reasons one site is good to go in Flash is – delivering of rich media, animation and effects, application needs… TommyTV is all about media, and application needs. Site delivers video from concerts and it’s desing incorporates 3D menu visuals.

2. Content… No metter if site is made in Flash, Ajax, HTML what makes it good is its content. And believe me TommyTV is all about great content, especially if you are a music lover. There is a band for every taste.

3. (UI) Design… it’s easy to get away from good UI design idea in Flash, too much of that or this takes you away. So keeping it clean, consistent and usefull for user is for respect. TommyTV have all of this. Resepct :)

4. Performance… Keeping a Flash in user acceptable performance is getting easier as Flash moves towards new player versions and better virtual machine. Even with that some sites go to far, or just don’t follow all the rules for better performance. TommyTV keeps it performance at high level, which for many video streaming sites and 3D sites isn’t a case.

If I remember few things more or you have your opinion please post a comment…

Anyway, enjoy TommyTV website, music and pleasure at one place…

3D Websites in Flash

As Javascript get capable more and more in competing with flash in transparency and transitions on web pages Flash is getting more and more serious about next step website interfaces. 3D is and will be a big part of new experiences on the web, and some of the latest site showcase it in great style.

Definitly one of the best 3D sites done in Flash is The Eco Zoo. It is surely great designed and very unique, with remarkable performance. Pop up books are so cool :)

Uniqlo hits it again with Uniqlo Try. Camera movements are really Uniqlo style, music and feeling at the site is great as always…

Third in series is Play > Smart, advertisement site for Benz-Mercedes mini car. Design of the website could be better as well as the texturing, but site definitly have a good catch with game mode and keeping score live.

Things are going in good direction, and I think web people will follow.
