Smoky Mountain Convention & Visitors Bureau

This was a redesign of the Smoky Mountain Convention & Visitors Bureau that was launched right before Christmas. It was a lot of fun working on this site.

The design of the site came from a local advertising agency that Mediapulse sometimes partners with. The interesting part of the site is in the Flash. The Flash parts, including all of the creature animation, was done by our Art Director, Chris Kosman.

The site was built by me, using standards compliant CSS. All of the Flash uses Unobtrusive Flash Objects (UFO) so that it will validate. The site also makes use of sIFR, which I am starting to use more of, for the headers.

Anyway, we are really excited about this site! Check it out at
