It has some cute ideas,but im on broadband and it still took forever to load.Its also a bit hard to work out what you have to do in order to view there stuff.

Personally i think that the sites a waste of time it's only aim is to say to fellow designs(hey look at me),because if a total newbie web user trys to use there site there will be lost.

A good site needs to be functional to the general user.

Anyhow that's my two cent

Exacty right mate,

Its a great looking site, but its got a shit layout / navigation!
Its only held up by great graphics and animation.

If i owned a business and was searching to get someone to do my advertising / web site.
i wouldt know what the hell to do in their site!!

never the less, its awsome!

The site designer has plenty of skill, however, he/she did not make it usable enough for the client to navigate with ease. There are plenty of better designed sites out there. I wouldn't call it the best site ever.

In my opinion, however, http://www.ciudadesm...g/index_fla.htm is probably the best flash site out there. It as perfect usability, as well as stunning design.

Neostream is over-flashed.

First they've been around for quite some time now. I think you guys are missing the point of the website. The website is to promote their 3D character animation abilities, storyboarding, and flash design. They are targeting a more serious group of ppl that more than likely know what they want. I mean come on, they won the FWA Award not only that it was the 2002 People Choice Award, and the Boomshock Award what else do you want? As for navigation, if you can't figure out how to navigate the website it's probably not a website you need to be on. The Peoples Choice Award speeks loudly on how may ppl were able to easily navigate the site and see the content. They make it sweet and simple all their pages are to the point. I'm sure they themselves are ready for a change, but I gaurantee that they have more important things to worry about than their website. And all good designer/portfolio sites are held together by the artwork not the content. Take for example, 2A, BilleyBussy, PixelRanger, WA07. They sure aren't gonna get jobs because they have nice wording and no design/art sense to back it up.

I love it. But as to whether it is the best in the world, I think that's a matter of opinion. =) I think there are many better. :) But, that one has VERY nice animation.

anything COULD be better. I find the usabily of site to be absolutly fine. I think the site is awesome. They have always been ahead of the game in flash. I remember when the first version was it. It was rather awesome at the time.

i liked the site, i wouldnt say its the best site, but it's good. i dont think it's possible to say whats the best site, because at the end of the day it'll be a matter of personal preference how well you like something.

I think it's definetly a good site, but other than the character there is no real substance to it. A portfolio browser or at least a client list would be nice (these may be buried under the navigation, but I couldn' find either.)

My one beef about usability is that, in an ideal website, you should have to press no more than a single button to get from point A to point B. At least for the big things - contact information, portfolio, services, company profile, etc.
I cannot take this anymore
I'm saying everything I've said before
All these words they make no sense
I found this in ignorance

You'll find that out anyway
