Todays Fireworks CS3 Jam Session Recorded!

The session today was a lot of fun! I believe we now have a synergy we all like and thats creating a Design Train where one of us starts a design off and each person can only spend 10 minutes on adding/modifying something to the design. Tim recommended a commentary so I did my best describing what was going on when someone was presenting. Trick is who is going to do the commentary on me? hehe

Todays design was a Tech style interface and I had no idea where to start so I started out creating some containers and mucking with colors, passed the file to Angelo, he added his magic with giving the design life and then passed the file to Grant where he applied his gradient skills with the custom Gradient panel he developed in Flash and made a hand off to Ryan where he did a lot of fine-tuning and cleaned up the interface then Tim jumped in and gave the design some definition and added final touches. We all came to the conclusion its an app that would be viewed on your refrigerator monitor. Not bad for a random team with a random concept with only ten minutes each to create something to add to the tech style interface. All I gotta say is I cant wait till next Thursday!

    Now that sounds like a lot of fun! I was planning on making it to this one but had an emergency come up last night/today(in which I had to learn ASP right quick — oh the joy). Definitely do the collab thing again, though, hopefully I can contribute in one sometime!

    What a great session Alan. Speed designing? Apologies for nipping of early but I had someone round and kept them waiting for as long as I dared 🙂
    I thought your commentary was terrific.
    It really is fun to be in on something like this and watch it evolve and progress.
    Congratulations to all who contributed.
