Whenever designing a website, “details” remains the quintessential part. It is only when we take a closer look at the details can we formulate the whole picture. To search for each detail may look childish, but it is paying attention to these intricate matters that make a website fulfill its purpose.
Each little component can be made obvious as soon as a visitor views a page. However, some elements are best kept hidden. This random factor also arouses the curiosity of the audience and makes them uncover the other hidden treasures. All these can be effectively achieved with Flash. Flash remains to be an effective tool for creating the websites where one needs to be conventional towards the details especially if the website needs an illustration, animation or interaction.
Animating and the Illustrating Components with Flash
To create intricate objects it is best to work in high zoom. The recommended level is 500-550% with the brush size of three. When viewed at 100% the image appears detailed and meticulously done. Designing should always be done with great care for each of the components that eventually compose the website.
While illustrating with Flash, it is best to use as many layers as possible so that it is easier to change anything at a later stage. This would further assist in animating the object. The layers of the single object can be grouped into a symbol and then resized and readjusted according to the needs of the website.
Say ‘No’ to Duplicity
When designing a picture or an image, ensure that the illustrations are individual and unique to it. Adding any arbitrary component gives the illustration a unique quality and style. Though far easier to copy from a template and work on it repetitively, the design loses its charm soon enough. It is in the details that the audience appreciates the hard work.
Most of us don’t have the luxury of time, however, it is in the situations like this that tiny changes to the duplicates can help your earn kudos. Remember, it is only when we as the creators care for our designs will the audience take the time to explore.
All audiences love surprises. Little illustration that initiates an interaction, when added will encourage the end-users to investigate each object present there. An illustrated character when added enhances the overall experience of the users.
Add existence with Animation
The illustrations would come to life if a simple loop of animations were joined with the different objects. The idea is to lend an organized and a dynamic appearance by enriching the website with movement and liveliness.
The amount of details conjoined to a website can increase the loading time and thereby slow the computer performance. This problem too, has a solution. Rasterizing the images that are static would allow Flash to have lesser real-time vector calculations to deal with. This would considerably lessen the loading time.
Beauty is the little things
Adding details can append a special character to the components and each of these elements would eventually develop an interesting and a wholesome picture. We, Riverside Web Design Company believe that “God lies in little details” and provide our consumers with unsurpassed user experience.
