I work for a small web design agency as a designer. We do not specialise in flash at all, but are doing a website that relies on some subtle, interesting flash. You can view the website at http://firefish.phoenixbeta.co.uk/ click on the menu items across the top of the box to see the different sections, each section has a background animation. There are animations there at the moment that I did but they are terrible. I'm looking for someone to have a bit of fun. The animation can be simple and don't forget Zen!
You can download all the illustrations below.
Each animation represents a section of the site so if we can have this in the back of your mind when animating that would be great.
Ideas of what you can do are as follows, but this isn't by any mean finite it is just to help give you an idea. I would like you to let your creativeness flow!
tails and eyes moving
on mouseover of element make sun flames flicker and moon have face
what we do
fish looking under plants, plants ripple
on mouseover plants grow
bubbles, fish slightly move, leaves flutter on the tree
on mouseover of element the world can turn
on mouse over birds put heart on tree
river ripples clouds move
on mouseover lights go on and off
ok you are getting the jist i hope, again this is just a very quick idea, not to be taken as concrete.
