Noting the URL above...
A picture in Flash that moves is the same as a static picture that doesn't.
The dimension may be important in some cases, but not all cases. A tube of lipstick is the same on all sides, and rarely are people interested in the bottom.
Oh really... and we all go to a "real" store to do the same thing. In reality this is design ego.
I totally agree... but most Flash designs are more about "flashy", "cool", "eye-popping" gimmicks and alot less about building awareness and brand trust.
Sure I agree, me too, but when I am interested in a product or service I care less about the design features of the web site and more about the product/services features and benefits.
Not quite... the web site isn't normally about experience. People don't go to stores, simply to experience the store... they go the fill a need.
Products and services fill the need... not gimmicks.
Don't get me wrong, I design in Shockwave... both are fantastic tools to help reach and motive a market. But Flash/Shockwave designing is not marketing. Without specific knowledge to address a client's need (which is their market need) many designs are just flashy gimmicks.
