    Just started this a couple days ago and would appreciate some feedback. It's a flash only site mostly to try and build experience with using Flash CS4.

    Lose the "Enter" button. Also, if you can, try to eliminate the use of 100% flash.

    Learn to use Flash. That's great. But it should never be used for a complete site. Experience has taught web users that when they see a splash page, preloader, or enter button the site is gonna be slow, so they leave. Use it for small things...Not the whole site.

    Try resizing the text. Now try disabling images. Now try disabling CSS. People do these kinds of things for accessiblity. Your site needs to accommodate that, and right now it accommodates none of that.

    The reason it would remain flash only is because its a portfolio, in my eyes it would be like saying put your resume on more then one piece of paper.

    Also you may have been viewing it at a smaller resolution then me cause for me the text is small but clean.

    Got rid of the enter button though.

    I wasn't saying I was having a problem reading it. I was saying it is an accessibility issue for those who may want or need to enlarge the text. Doesn't have to be Flash to stay on one page. My portfolio is one page as well, using JavaScript so if the user has JavaScript turned off, it is still perfectly usable and accessible, just a longer page. There are ways to make Flash accessible, as well.

    Thing is I'm still pretty fresh into web development so at the current time I'm focusing on improving my flash skills, so my concern for accessibility is minimal. As a side note though I do believe a flash only site would suit my portfolio because it would be the only place I really could legitimately use it and it would showcase my flash ability and creativity.

    Though I do appreciate your feedback and will look into ways of making it more accessible.

    The only two things I dont like is where the flash makes the colors change to blue and red. To me it just doesnt fit on the page with those colours. And two, I am British and I just think that it should be in capital at the start of "british". Apart from that I really like it.
    Also I would like to hear what you think of my site image.
