Flashing For Your Eyes Only

Are You Designing For Your Eyes Only? by Chris MacGregor, Flash expert, Flazoom.com is a highly informative, helpful article about readability, usable type and font size issues, contrast and content issues. Then again, everything I read by Chris MacGregor is outstanding.

Although the article discusses Flash, the important points made are really applicable for web design in general, too. Chris has an exceptionally easy to read, interesting writing style, explaining things clearly, concisely, and in a friendly way.

Check out the rest of Flazoom.com, also by Chris MacGregor. It’s entirely devoted to Flash. This is definitely a site you could spend hours exploring. Even if you don’t use Flash, there’s still a lot there of interest.
