Spring '04 - CSUMB Design Contest
'The History of 3Dfx Interactive' Flash CDROM
In Spring 2004, the computer department of Cal State Monterey Bay held a design contest, and I submitted one of my interactive multimedia pieces that I developed, and won First Place in the multimedia category and creative deliverable. I received a full-version copy of Apple Final Cut Pro 4 as my award.
The Project was "The History of 3Dfx Interactive Inc." The entire CDROM-Based project was a Flash interface that contained a complete timeline of the history of the company, a complete gallery of products they developed, commericals produced, Key people within the company, and a record of video games that supported the 3Dfx graphics technology that propelled the Computer gaming industry into what it is today. The reason for this idea to come alive, was because during this time, 3Dfx was bought-out by its rival NVIDIA. 3Dfx then became a speck of sand that was once a mountain.
It was all developed with Macromedia Flash 5, along with Wildform SWFX type effects. The entire project was a 2-3 month process in designing, and it was developed in Early 2002.
