One month, we'll swear by airplane schematics and B-films, the next, we'll rant over William Shatner's 'The Transformed Man'.
Please give us a brief bio of yourself.
What do you do for inspiration?
I don't believe that there's any specific source that we can point to for inspiration; we tend to hop around a lot, always looking for new ideas and never settling for long. One month, we'll swear by airplane schematics and B-films, the next, we'll rant over William Shatner's 'The Transformed Man'.
Please list 3 of your favourite sites.
What do you regard as being your biggest achievement?
That five art school kids could build and maintain a studio with no prior experience in the industry that is by far our biggest achievement.
What software couldn't you live without?
The Adobe Suite, MAYA
What projects do you have in the pipeline?
We're taking a few months off to work on our new demo reel and short film project. Other than that, we're working with Comedy Central on some Ids and just finished up our second music video for Hot Hot Heat's new single 'No Not Now'.
Who do you rate as being the top 3 design companies?
What effect on traffic do your new designs have?
Whenever we post up new work we do get hit pretty hard the first few days, but it usually levels off after that.
What area of web design lacks the most?
There is still a huge gap between web content and conventional entertainment channels. The web is one huge entity, and the entertainment industry is another, but to date they have not found a way to merge successfully.
Who is your target audience?
What did your very first site look like? Is it still online?
Very minimal. It is not.
Have you written any books, if not do you plan to?
We always have a book project or two in the back of our minds, but no immediate plans. We feel that we must develop a more substantial body of work before we attempt a book project.
Do you think Flash is here to stay?
What was the toughest thing you ever did with Flash? Is it still online?
Our current website. It is.
How have you learned so many Flash/design skills and techniques and can you offer any advice for newbies?
We just keep trying new techniques and discarding that which does not work. It's a trial-and-error process; the best work comes about by accident.
Any parting shots or pearls of wisdom?
Read a lot. Don't worry about what others are doing. Trends are trends; find something permanent.
