NextLevel Arts

Website Design & Development

Portfolio

NextLevel Arts has been providing services to other website design firms since 2005. We did not perform website design services for these websites (our role in these projects is detailed below), but we are now happy to offer complete website design and development services to the general public. We did create the design for this, our own site, of course.

The projects presented here are just a small sample of our work.

Omnirox

Date: December 2006

About

Kosa Minore Creative hired us to convert their Photoshop designs for Omnirox into standards-based templates. All Flash files were provided by the client.

Please note the following:

  • Some of the templates do not technically validate. The validation errors are all the result of one of two things: the use of EMBED for Flash content, and the use of the non-standard allowTransparency attribute on IFRAME for IE compatibility. Some of the templates loaded in the IFRAMEs validate completely.

  • IFRAMEs were used to satisfy the client's unique requirement that the embedded Flash audio player continue playing without interruption as users navigate between pages.

    The Flash audio player provided by the client automatically began playing audio when the page was opened. As a courtesy to users of my website, that behavior has been disabled in the archived templates presented here by inserting a non-existent file at the beginning of the playlist, making it necessary to click the skip to next track button to begin playing audio here.
