    It's clean, looks good, a bit too HTML-ish for me but I just really like Flash. All in all the site works. Maybe you could do something about transitions between the pages? I don't know, it just seems a little disconnected.

    Disconnected?

    Thanks for your response, could you elaborate on how it looks disconnected. I had the top flash "mission statement" on each page, but the client only wanted it on the front page.

    Thanks again for your time,

    Jake

    trend

    i am not feeling at all the tred of flash/html sites... well me i am kinda wanting html to just die out.. but this flash/html thang will keep html around a lot longer then it needs to be... with that said i think that you could have really made this site look a lot better just buy going all flash.. from the page transitions to the graphics.. I am not gonna lie to you like some flash haters/html lovers will because html just makes sites look dead and lifeless with awful transitions from page to page.. Flash adds that much needed connection from page to page.. it keeps a flow and a rhythm that keeps the visitors attention.. when things go blank.. even for that split second it really does more to kill the mood and focus of the visitor.. and believe it or not internet users have become much more complex.. they have out grown html.. they have grown up and matured they have come to expect more out of their online experience then what html is giving them.. well i aint gonna be the flash preacher... but i have seen some people on here who tend to give positive remarks to thoes who do the flash/html thang and then come down hard on thoes who do full flash sites.. and well you know it don't take a "web scientist" to figure out that they just hating on flash.. and thats only because they can't do full flash.. i say that the days of having a lil bit of flash here and a lil bit of FLASH THERE ON A html SITE ARE NUMBERED!!!!!! AND THOSE WHO THINK THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH NOT LEARNING FLASH BY BASHING FULL FLASH SITES.. YALL ARE OUT OF TOUCH WITH REALITY!!!!!.....


    ummmmm can i get an AMEN to that.......


    i love yall

    Sorry Jakobie, I owe you a comment. It looks fine. The only comment I have is the pictures look washed out on the homepage. I don't like that. Everything else looks ok. You might want to check how wide you are making your sites (try printing it). Maybe use different cell widths on your template table.

    Also that click here for the people we tribute thing is starting to bug me. It looks too much like an advert. Not a link.

    HYBRID SITES are good.. especially concidering that full flash sites dont get picked up by search engines as much.

    Looks gr8.. but... eheh

    The site being stuck so much to the left is "uncomfortable" perhaps you shuld have like 5 to 10 pixels of that background separating some of the Left content from the screen edge..

    your buttons could be crisp.. try anti alisas on off
    or if that does not work.

    or use pixel fonts, remeber has to be multiples of 8 and screen placment in whole numbers

    or.. just do the type in photoshop. as crisp as you can, then
    import to you library.. click on info.. uncheck the smoothing
    and bumb up th jpg jsut for that image (for each button text)
    or if gif/png leave as be.

    then place them onto the buttons.

    Other than that.. it breaths nice.. text well spaced.. easy to read
    (thats hard to do with much content) and has visual rythem good on ya!

    peace
    Hendrik-Jan
