Our first client site us­ing Javascript to cre­ate some­thing that’s more re­lat­able to the old days of Flash.

The site was based on a little piece of Ac­tion­script that made a char­ac­ter move left and right through a par­al­lax en­vi­ron­ment.

The first hur­dle was to re­work that code in Javascript and with Createjs, and get it work­ing on Can­vas so we could have it run on mo­bile. The tech side of this job went great. Se­bas­tian for­tu­nately proved how mag­nif­i­cent he was at in­ter­pret­ing Ac­tion­script con­cepts into Html5-based script.

It was in­ter­est­ing to see the re­sponse on so­cial me­dia from teenagers that haven’t grown up with ex­pe­ri­en­tial sites and most of them de­cided it was some sort of witch­craft.

How­ever, it was all down to some very hard work to make it all look very sim­ple. Things like dy­namic

Tour Dates be­ing dis­played with Can­vas were not so easy and we had to fig­ure out ways to pull live data in with­out break­ing out of the an­i­mated stage. Lots of work to make some­thing look sim­ple.
