I'm available for work no matter where in the world you are. If you're interested in having me work for you, just drop me a note.
My newest site, designed to show and sell my collection of
computer clocks and wrist watches, uses a fusion of Flash and HTML to create an atmospheric and playful site.
See the site (and clocks you can run on your own computer and wrist!)
ViaFone has been through several incarnations, and so has their web site. They’ve since been sold to Extended Systems, which then changed its name to ianywhere. Go figure. Read about the ViaFone logo.
This first site used the repeated logo (which I designed),
a personal handwritin g script, and a simple design that cut through the clutter. Click on graphic to the left and see it full-size and animated.
To the left you can see the second site’s illustration. These are used simply on the site to give the illustrations a subtle punch--and also because Flash can render these vector graphics more cleanly and compactly than GIF can. So you get better quality, and animation, in a graphic that downloads faster. What’s not to like?
See the ViaFone “MySimon” demo. This was designed to simulate a WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) telephone displaying a web site.
The latest site uses this illustration to convey ViaFone’s ability to connect people around the globe:
This animated logo for a German Linux company features a stylized penguin because the penguin is, for some unknown reason, the official power-animal of Linux. Click here to see it larger.
Bruce Eckel is an internationally-known author and speaker who uses his site to promote his seminars, CD, and books. He also distributes a free e-book version of his best-selling books "Thinking in" Java and C++.
The site design grew out of his teaching concept involving a
path towards order. The home page uses Flash to animate the concept, and create an interactive page that’s more compact and faster-loading than if it had been done using GIF or JPG graphics.

This Swiss company needed a tri-lingual site. The home page animates in, then the language links on the right instantly change the language of the buttons. Try them (note: only the language links are functional here)
I gave a design presentation for a group of designers at Yosemite, and I used Flash. It allowed me to create a presentation that was more flexible than something like PowerPoint, and one I could post on the web. Take a look.
