In 2001 I created the first version of this complex Flash website for the popular Garito Cafe in Palma de Mallorca. I was working at Global Red at that time. In 2005 it was replaced by version 2.
What was special about that site?
- 100% updatable database driven Flash website (program, recommended music, links, djs, staff, concept, intro text, club pictures, gallery, videos thumbs, audio sessions, dj videos, other videos)
- It was created when Flash could not load JPG files. I created a complex image administrator that converted images in any format to SWF using ImageMagick and PHP. It included resizing, cropping, automatic levels and sharpening.
- It included an audio player with playlist.
- Content was updated monthly.
The design concept was created by Xim Izquierdo. Jose Manuel Ramirez from Global Red did additional design and animation. I did all backoffice and Flash programming, additional design and animation.
