Shift & Switch website

I just finished a website for Shift & Switch: New Canadian Poetry, a new anthology edited by derek beaulieu, Jason Christie & Angela Rawlings. The book was just published by The Mercury Press. I contributed some visual and found poetry to the anthology as well. The title at the top of the site is interactive (try clicking the letters). It's the first time I've tried this kind of frame-by-frame animation in Flash, and although it was quite time-consuming, I'm really pleased with the results. Enjoy!

Hi Matthew,
That animation on the website is crazy! I have no idea how Flash works, but I believe it when you said it was time consuming. Very nice job. Any more webpage designs in the works?

Hey Matt. I absolutly love your design for this website. It kinda reminds me of Craig Thompson's site http://www.dootdootgarden.com/

Thanks, guys!

Jennifer, I just designed a couple of posters for SWGC Art Gallery, and will be updating their website as well. Other than that, working on grad school applications and looking forward to Expozine.

Dave, thanks for mentioning Craig Thompson's site. It's great! I'm going to have to cave in and buy Blankets, I think....

By all means man, cave in... and sink right in too! It's an incredably beautiful and honest book.
