Flash Website

So, our final project for graphic interface was to create a simple website using Flash. I'd never used Flash before, so I was a little intimidated. But this class has pretty much all been about doing things I've never done before. So here I went. I decided to do my website about redheads, because obviously, why not. We are a completely unrepresented race. Ok, maybe not a race, but a population let's say.  So, I wanted to do something fun and whimsical to cover this fabulous topic, and I was researching I stumbled upon this holiday card: Loved it! Perfect style I was looking for. Kind of like a classy but fun 50's feel going on.

Next I found a bunch of fun content including crazy facts and myths about redheads, which you might be surprised there are a lot of.  Then it was on to figure out how to include this all into a website. And make it not look to ridiculous. The design is pretty simple, but I like it.  Then onto putting it all into Flash, and making it somehow all link together and do cool movements and stuff. This was where the confusement came. I struggled a bit, but it is done. And turned in. I might go back and fix some things to make it better, but until then, here it is!

Oh, and a link to the real deal website if you wanna take a peak:
