The Build: A Return of the Flash-Based Website Design


With the slow and drawn-out demise of Flash as a website design element, a particular style of site faded into the history books. I’m talking about the animated sequence of images and text that serves to introduce a topic. These intro clips would often set the stage for a website and theoretically get a user interested enough to click into and through the site. Visit The Build and you will find a similar approach at work. The segment reminds me of the Flash sites that were all the rage 10 years ago.
