For a few weeks now I’ve been screen-grabbing little snippets of interface design elements that caught my eye. Some from websites, electronics, car dashboards, whatever. Today was the first day I actually sat down and started sifting through everything to prep for a Flash lesson on all this. Usually I’ll try to work out an overall theme for a lesson, and then decide what to teach first. I thought I had a good theme in my head, until I began playing around in Flash, and then the first thing that came out was great, but not at all what I intended. It got me thinking a series of different video player shells could be useful. So many sites use video now, and usually there’s no outer decoration. Anyway, just thought I’d share the pic below.
