A Touch of Class

As you can tell by the horribly cheesy name of this post, this one is about classes in AS3.

For me the move to AS3 also meant the move to doing everything in class files as opposed to writing it in the on a frame of the timeline.

This was very confusing and difficult for me as I was not only learning the new syntax of AS3 but also was thrown head first into event life cycle, display list issues and other things that come along with writing classes and class packages. Stuff that I had never dealt with before (or at least didn’t know I was dealing with it).

This will be the first in a series of posts on classes in Flash and I will be learning as much as you do I’m sure. So here we go.

Ohm Life

My wife runs a very successful clothing store in beautiful Port Carling, Ontario called Ohm Life.  She asked me to help her create a website that was simple, elegant and captured the feel of her store. We came up with the look by mixing cutout elements with splashes of watercolor texture

I am very proud of the logo I created for Ohm Life when the store was first opened. It has appeared in many different places and I have created all the print elements for them. We have done, awnings, door and window graphics, water bottles, business cards, and hang-tags. Continue reading “Ohm Life”

As with most things in AS3 that has changed a fair amount. It is no longer one line of code. I’ll show you everything and then walk you through it Continue reading “Going Somewhere?”

Site is up

I have tried the blog thing a couple of times without success. I’m just too busy and really no one reads this stuff anyway. I figure since I am paying for this server this time it’ll stick … maybe.

So here is my site. RyanWelcher.com. Enjoy.

Denny’s Canada

We were very excited when Northland Properties contacted us to give Dennys.ca a face lift. We dove right in to create a very fun and interactive experience. The home page had seasonal themes that would have snow falling on the elements, leaves blowing in the wind, or grass and flowers growing.

We created 2 games for the D-Zone, the portion of the site created for kids, that included an interactive colouring book and a memory style game based on menu items.

UPDATE: The current Dennys.ca has undergone another face lift to align the branding closer to that of it’s American counterpart. We did updated versions of the colouring book and memory game as well as added a simple Jigsaw Puzzle. Continue reading “Denny’s Canada”
