I made this flash layout as a new (completely different) version of my old static gallery/portfolio etc. site.
I welcome any questions or comments on the photoshop work, or if you have some experience w/ flash or designing site layouts then fill me in there too if you would like.
the little hands in the picture are to show the effects of a rollover.
(1) The left-most hand shows that when the mouse rolls over one of the 'arrow' navbar buttons it turns the icon from an arrow into a '3d' box (which may end up slowly spinning as an added animation).
(A) also, when the mouse clicks on one of the navbar buttons, the letters on head will be backlit (as shown) to spell out different things - such as 'gallery', 'about me' and 'contact' (there isnt really going to be a 'seattle' link - the letters need to be changed to make the other spelling possible).
(2) when a navbar button is clicked the text or thumbnails will load in a scrollable area on the right side of the screen. The same idea from (1) will be applied to the scroll buttons (right-most hand). I know its narrow - but i think i read somewhere that narrow columns of text are actually easier for internet users to read.
(3) (middle hand) when the mouse rolls across the 'moon' area, a hidden layer will be partially revealed underneath (of gears etc).
so let me know if you think i should add or remove anything, or if you would change the graphics or have any better ideas for the layout. -whew!
thanx for your input.
