Case Study: Denon Visyoulizer

As we're wrapping up Denon's VisYOUalizer I'm asked to look back at the twists and turns of this journey and make sense of it. The goal of the project was to showcase Denon's new line of headphones in a cutting-edge way. BBDO NY had come up with the idea to "visYOUalize Yourself" in a personalizable music visualizer. The creative sessions we held led us to a pretty succinct concept: a headpho ...

Zip Through The Load

Load times are a Flash Developer's nemesis. Even today with download speeds measured in megabits per second, a good developer has to be wary of how slow things are loading. A popular way of speeding up load times are to use a CDN like Cachefly or Amazon. However, these services do cost money and often charge by bandwidth used. An alternative way to speed up loading is to compress your files into a ...

Paper.js: Vector meets Canvas

I know I'm not the first to delve into the world of Paper.js, but being such a new technology, i figured it was worth a look. Not to mention that you can do some pretty neat stuff with it on any canvas enabled browser. See these quick examples: cubes lines starfield First off, if you don't know about Paper.js, definitely check it out, its a vector graphics framework built on top of Ja ...

Splitificating
Text Fields

Text and typography effects are all the rage right now. This example shows you what you can do when you can manually animate each individual letter. Manually splitting text fields for animations can be pretty annoying though. In this post I’ll show you how to split your text fields for use in animations. First off, you’ll need a text field. I prefer to have my TextField in place and added t ...

JQuery vs. Mootools

Now i know javascript frameworks are nothing new, and these two have been around for awhile now, but the JQuery vs Mootools debate still comes up quite often so I'd figure I'd share my reasoning for picking one over the other. It also seems like lately there has been a bit of a shift away from flash so javascript has become a more popular topic as of late. Another factor is the misconceptions of H ...

Making of björk.com pt. 1

About 6 months ago we were contacted by a company in the uk because of this blog post. They were particularly interested in creating an html5 experience for the Bjork's new web site. Who wasn't? After Steve had this to say, and experiments like 100-tweets drummed up interest, the interwebs were ready to critically acclaim an html web experience and that's when the wilderness downtown came onto the ...

Flash 10 3D:
Is it time?

3D is all the rage right now in the web. WebGL is finally becoming a reality and Adobe has also just released the low level 3d API, Molehill. However, both of these technologies are quite involved and aren't really suited to quick and dirty 3d effects. This is where the flash10 3D, or maybe more accurately 2.5D, features came in. The idea here was to give developers the ability to do simple 3D eff ...

Great Time To Be a Web Developer

There are two main problems that developers have face: How to get people to see your app How to make money off that app App stores really solve both of these issues. One of the coolest things as a web developer is the fact that there are ways to create "native" apps for these app stores using the standard languages we use: html, js, css, and AS3. Here are some platforms web developer ...

Safari vs Chrome: HTML5 Canvas Tests

Recently we were engaged by a company in the UK and some designers based out of Paris, to bring a 3D model designed in Google SketchUp to life online. This would hardly be noteworthy had we been allowed to use Flash to deliver an interactive experience. But for this project, we were specifically tasked to use HTML5 friendly techniques. Thank you Mr. Jobs. Unfortunately, we can't share any links a ...
