you should probably add some nice flash animations and buttons and have FireWorks to do the background. then it will be really groovy! aye for real.

I think you are right!.But problem is that I really dont like these type of stuff ...flash,adobe fireworks etc.I haven't developed even a simple application in flash.On the other hand i want to make my coustomer's requirement fulfilled.What i should do?.Is there any easy pathway to learn flash or get any readymade flash like application??. Bye, Viki.
So, let's recap: 1) You don't know what you're supposed to do 2) You don't know how to do it 3) Learning how to do it has to be quick and easy I was going to move this, but on second thought you are indeed in the right forum.
once a client told us to develop very simple, colorful, & Jazzy site. I forwarded it to my colleague

its really easy to use flash and fireworks. just get the dreamworks software from macromedia and everything is made for you. piece of cake , especially for us java programmers.

ANS 1: Well, i know very well, but before meeting with my client!.I was told by a third party that i've to developed a web site.I said i'll see after what to do after first meeting. ANS2:Surely, i dont know how to create a website in flash.But i'll learn flash while creating this website!.It's Just a tool.So treate a tool as a tool!. ANS3: Obviously, learning any tool is much easier.Especially for engineers, who creates tool.

I should be.. I will try my best not to loose this project even i dont know a stuf like flash, adobe...For two reasons!. 1: It's my learning period.And this is a golden chance for any developer to learn a tool by implementing it in a real world scenarios. 2: It will increase my area of knowledge in tools like flash, adobe etc. Bye, Viki.

you need to have the customer show you examples of what he/she thinks is cool. i havent tried flash yet either because it is so expensive. annimated gifs and mouseover effects are sometimes cool. pleasing color scheme is good.
Guys, don't want to sound like I don't like Indian engineers. I love them. Here's my story about "Cool websites". I know a few Russian software companies who outsource software development for US shops, just like a lot of Indian companies do. So, talking to an owner of one of this shops (his gigs: MS, Intel, L'Oreal and bunch), I kindly asked would he consider Indian companies his competitors. At what he chuckled, and said that, although they write great back-end code, they have no slightest idea on what UI and front-end design are, and russians would beat 'em hands down on creating cool web sites (or cool UIs, for that matter). Morale: go to Europe to find "Coolness". Shura [ June 09, 2002: Message edited by: Shura Balaganov ]
agree with you. Really I dont know what is cool means OR how to make some thing simple with jazzy colors. I am the great follower and demander for seperating views from logic. And I appriciate these people who are in designing. What a creativity they have. They give you 10 samples of samething with different UI.
I feel the meaning of "Cool web site" depends on the *content* and *type* of users. If users include president, VP, finance executives and management people then the web site should be more informative, light colored , less images and FAST. If the users are regular guys like us then you may include Flash, graphics and colors.
