Getting a web design solution that meets your needs is our priority here at lightblack. This article aims to discuss the options availble when looking for a website and offers some of the pros and cons that are associated with different types of website design. Our discussion focuses on the differences between the two primary web authouring technologies - traditional HTML sites and sites designed using Adobe Flash.
Flash technology allows the design to move away from a static HTML format and integrate all the elements of the site around a custom interface. Flash sites can incorporate advanced media handling functionality, including video and music, optimised for web viewing.
From a design point of view flash is unsurpassed in its ability to offer rich media websites with levels of sophistication and integration simply not possible with traditional HTML web pages. Flash dispenses with the need for slow page to page websites that can only display limited static content. We recommend flash websites most commonly for portfolios for artists, photographers or musicians who are looking for a visually engaging presentation with heavy use of images, music or video. Flash is unsurpassed in it capability to handle images and gallery systems, music and full motion video. Flash also ensures that the content is as streamlined and optimised as possible.
There are a number of occasions when Flash is not necessarily the recommended design solution. For sites that are more content driven and less visual image critical designing in html can increase the content management options and also save time and expense in the design phase.
Please do contact us if you would like to discuss further options relating to web design and for suggestions on how we can take you website to the next level.
