A Good Use of Flash

The Washington Post “Faces of the Fallen” page is about the best use of Flash I’ve seen in a long while.
Notwithstanding the subject matter (whether you’re for or against the war, this page vividly brings home its tragic human cost), the implementation of the tool is excellent – intuitive to use, with subtle design elements that aid understanding of the content and well integrated into the page.
The designers behind this page obviously understood that Flash works best when it is used to enhance the content it is presenting, and not just to put it across in a showy way. As a consequence, this page has struck a deep chord with me, and I am sure I will be returning to it in the future.
