When Worlds Collide


in Custom Wordpress, Flash Sites, Graphics

Clothing designer Rey Aquino launched a new menswear collection last Spring, and requested a Steampunk clock to countdown the days until the launch. I also built a neo-futuristic “invention” in Flash with various “machine parts” stock image.

The “invention” looks pretty cool animated in Flash. Check it out, archived on my su-ling blois site. The clock keeps real time, as does the calendar. The other parts countdown to a specific date, in this case the date of an event.
I also built a custom theme for their WordPress website which they will be adding content to themselves. Many elements of the Flash clock were re-purposed for their Flash lookbook.
