    No? How about if you were too busy working and/or sleeping?
    (and yes, I have done both at the same time )

    It's another design studio's site for Christ's sake. Good luck to them and all that, but it's certainly not something to sacrifice your own work/life time for...

    What interests me more is the amount of comments on the site (of which, yes, I'm contributing to). When you consider that outside of a few Flash designers on the web, nobody knows or cares who the f*** 2A are (just as nobody knows who the f*** most of us are), it's actually quite funny.

    I always thought the design "community" was so incestuous, hence why I would advise anyone to make sure they don't emerse themselves completely. Life is too full of so many other interesting things...

    Anyway, good luck to the 2A boys. I'm sure they're keeping busy, whatever comments we pass on the site, so more power to them.

    How about that. The problem I pointed out about the Show Reel being called a Case Study has been changed to "Prophecy Demo Reel."

    That navigation section until now was called Case Studies. The show reel description has been rewritten as well.

    As always, this is possible proof that critiquing sites here can make a difference.

    The site is slick, though. This is the first time I think it's worked fully, viewing portfolio and stuff. I think I do like the function of it better than the previous site. Pretty nice in that respect.

    i think it looks too different.

    some parts looks to simple to be 2a and other parts look elite.

    kinda gives me a wierd feeling

    Still having a look through. It's nice to see more client projects than there were before. They've done some really good stuff as always.
    The thing I've always been impressed with about 2A is how fast and smooth the animations are. There's always been this feeling that the intros, sites etc, had something unique in that aspect-they don't hang up and don't bog down the computer too often.
    Pittsburg Penguins site is really nice.
    And I wonder how painful it was for 2A to do that Josh Todd site with the barbed wire and metal/stone looking texture. haha
    Who is Josh Todd anyways? Glad I only listen to NPR.


    I guess a cool point of the site is that it's going to continue to impress people, especially people new to Flash. The Vir2l site back in maybe 1999 or 2000 would be the equivilent for me as to what 2A and this version could be to people who have not seen much cool Flash stuff before.
    All of a sudden you've found a site like this, and all you want to do is learn to do the same. It's always achieved this with people, so you can't bash it in that regard.

    If Tony gets to read this...

    I would like to know if Eric designed the site himeself, someone else on the 2a team, or was it a collaboration within 2a? well i really dont think eric had a huge part in this project for some reason.

    and was i right about Andru Pheonix taking part in some of this as well? like the intro animation, transisiton animation..etc..

    thanks again.

    yeah if you look at the taig khris site and the 2a site you can tell similarities right off

    The animation and subsequent halo around EJ's head as pointed out at the start of this thread, I think has gone or changed.

    I Like the site.. but I don't know about the nijas and stuff.. reminds me of the Jap animation stuff.. and i see no clear need for it all over the site.. but the site is smooth, everything plays out well.. colors go good.. not hard to navigate... I don't know much about the backend stuff but it all looks good.

    A) I'm not some cocky arroagant dude. I'm just an average guy, with average skills, but who works hard and is lucky enough to work with some talented people. So please when you say "Those guys are sooo arrogant" think before you write that next time. Sure I voice my opinions but I like to consider myself pretty down to earth.

    B) No the video is not a case study. It was going to be a case study but we didn't get it written in time for launch. Sorry we were busy planning a fun party for the community and also have a ton of client work that kept us busy. Therefore I changed the text now to reflect what it is..but it will again be considered a "Case Study" once the content is written. Until then...its a Demo Reel.

    C) The text in the company section started crisp. The movie clip got accidentally moved a few hours later. The movie clip was moved back into perfect position and fixed. Sorry for the mistake. Everyone's done that before right?

    D) 1024x768. Well I've been either a professional designer, HTML ***** or lackey in this undustry for about 7-8 years now. Even back in the day... I do not think I have ever seen one CEO, CF0, or important player of a company run a resolution at 800x600 since about 1997. Those 50% statistics are coming from some place that gives free stats to people on Geocities and things. I can get you the stats monday on what percentages visit 2A and let you know.

    As far as FK being the influence for some of those changes. Sorry mg33 but you are wrong. It think this honestly is about my first trip in to the Coffee Lounge to even read anything here. Please try to not be so Arrogant as to think you have the power to change a site. (snickers)

    Nice one Shane.

    I was waiting for this site to be launched for aaages. All year really. I even set the countdown timer as my active desktop item, and woke up early after 4 hours of sleep (8am here in the UK - I normally surface at the crack of 12:00 ;-) ).

    At 00:00:00 I got a 'page cannot be displayed' - had a good titter at that, but well impressed with the design when the traffic spike eased a little. Very exciting. Like Christmas really.

    It seems alot of people are getting a bit confused as to the mechanics of the site versus the visuals. Do you think you could pen a little post to explain how the booty (back end) works?


    D.
    Peace, love and good happiness stuff.
