xiv FOREWORD ERIC WITTMAN MACROMEDIA Most viewers experience the web in a static and uninspiring manner stemming primarily from de- signers with limited tools for expression. The web browsing platform, as designers know it, is shifting from a medium of compromise to one where natural creations can be easily delivered. The fusing of media with emotion to effectively convey a message is a science only the savviest of designers have mastered but one everyone will need to be familiar with. The evolution of the web medium from brochureware distribution to a continuously breathing or- ganism is happening today through design-oriented tools and technologies. The power of Macro- media Flash allows designers to combine moving visuals, sound and interactivity and deliver evoc- ative content consistently to millions of people. Through his Flash-based work, Hillman Curtis excites emotions in viewers effectively delivering life through a web browser. The techniques illustrated in this book provide insightful information on how to make functional, efficient designs using Macromedia Flash. This book is a resource every de- signer creating Flash content should have in his or her design toolbox. --Eric J. Wittman Senior Product Manager Flash, Macromedia
