					Flash Design and Animation
Websites designed with Flash have taken the Internet by storm, giving users access to websites with
appealing design and creative navigation. Almost all websites have some sort of Flash embedded in
them -- navigation menus, headers or advertisements. The most popular video site, Youtube.com,
broadcasts its videos through Flash video technology.

Flash design and animation is becoming increasingly popular among companies. These companies use
Flash to leverage their virtual presence in the Internet to their advantage. Aside from providing dynamic
headers and interactive navigation menus, Flash design and animation can also be used for information-
related material, like interactive maps or instructional videos.

Flash-designed websites and apps have indeed become ubiquitous in the virtual world. Any company
that values its Internet presence has some sort of Flash-designed element integrated with its company
website.

The animation industry has also benefited from the explosion of technology triggered by the
introduction of Flash. Although traditional hand-drawn storyboards are still the norm, Flash technology
has taken its place within the animation workflow. Most digital animated productions cannot do without
Flash. Since Flash is grounded on animation, many cartoonists and animators have successfully
integrated Flash into their sets of skills, along with their traditional pens and papers.

Seeing this rise of interest in Flash-related design, a number of design studios and ad agencies hiked
their fees to seize the opportunity. This has affected the industry negatively, convincing companies to
try outsourcing Flash design to more affordable and cost-effective designers. Most of these designers
are based in BPO destinations such as the Philippines and India.

Besides outsourcing Flash, animation outsourcing has also become a byword in the animation industry.
A number of pioneering investors, seeing the potential of outsourcing Flash, established animation
companies in the Philippines. The country boasts of a pool of intelligent, creative, and skilled artists, who
are highly sought-after in their respective fields.

The ongoing attention being heaped on 3D is also seeing an increased demand for 3D animation. Filipino
designers, with their skills and knowledge, are benefiting from the consequent rise in 3D animation
outsourcing. The combination of ingenuity, creativity, skill, and intelligence make Filipino animators and
designers definitely world-class.
