It's a moving world...
www.animation is a fascinating new book by Jenny Chapman scheduled for publication on February 21st through Cassell. Taking a look at every aspect of the moving image on the web, www.animation provides essential reading for all serious design professionals and students alike. Here's a little bit from the author:
"Web animation is being made not only by animators and graphic designers, but by musicians, engineers and skateboarders, to name but a few. This diversity of inspiration has brought a wonderful richness and variety to web animation design, which is reflected throughout this book."
BowieNet has three pages of screen grabs given over to it, and deservedly so. This is how the site you are looking at right now is described in the book:
"David Bowie's official website at www.davidbowie.com, which is designed by UltraStar and NettMedia, combines Flash navigational elements and animation with a delicate, understated colouring and design."
Tastefully designed, www.animation is well worth checking out, particularly if you are about to embark upon a bit of your own animated web design.
