SpryCast (developed for the SpryNetwork company) is a site I designed and developed by drawing together a lot of my web-development skills. The aim of the site is to sell broadcast streaming services such as Windows Media Video or Shoutcast internet radio. The market for this is those who are already web-savvy, so I felt I didn't need to hold back in any respect. I wanted the site to be visually attractive and entertaining, using the mentality of 'there is always one more thing to click'.
The busy feel of the site is given by they huge amount of content that is actually available along with the graphics. The illustrations give the site a relaxed feel while still keeping with the professional feel of the blue curves and gradients. Images on the site make use of the PNG format to provide true transparency, which requires a few hacks to work in IE5/6, but works beautifully to keep the gradients of the background graphics.
