Graphical Designers Market – Geniografico

Posted by Charles | June 9, 2009 .

The readers of Flex888 should have known by now we love designers. It’s the designers make the Flex RIA thrive, the Flex developers are taking a nice ride from all the years of creative works. So it’s naturally seeing a graphical designer market place built with Flex. Today I’d like show you Geniográfico. I’m not sure what the name means or what language it is but I like the idea.

The first thing I found they did it right is that I don’t see the default Flex Halo themed UI. I’m sure you know what I mean. There are too many Flex applications out there that look the same. Having a least a bit of graphic/UI design is a must-have when doing RIA, period. In Geniografico’s case, the dark theme is still trendy.

I like the fish-eye type of navigation at left too. However, the icons are kinda need a bit of works. Not sure if it’s the culture thing or not. By looking at the icons, I can’t figure out what they do. Another improvement I’d suggest is the navigation, especially the “back button”. It’s now at the very bottom-right corner. Without finding it I can’t go back to previous screen. Why not move it to more prominent place. I think it’s the common issue that a Flex RIA should deal with.

In general, it’s nice Flex application. To be a business, there might need do something more such as explaining clearly how it works, etc. Or, like everybody else did, having a none-Flash intro page as the landing page to prompt the business.

Wish them good luck!

    Hi Charles,

    Thanks for the review! We’ll discuss your suggestions this week (they definitely make sense!). We’ll be adding an English and Spanish example next to the current Dutch example. For your information: Geniográfico refers to ‘graphical designer geniuses’ :)

    Best regards,
    Tom

    Beautiful skins. Frankly, I too have seen too many websites using the default skin. IMO, the “back button” is prominent enough but the problem is of it being to the right (which is intuitively a position for “next” or “forward”).
