I am an after-hours-lots-of-books-and-forums Flash learner,
and while I can put together basic sites easily, the beautiful
complex site almost send me to despair. Roughly how many hours (and
people) do the good sites take from briefing to going live and over
what time period? I'm guessing Flash applications using Flex are a
completely different kettle of fish altogether so I mean the type
of sites that use Flash alone.
Do you mean how many hours does creating a complex website
take? hope I understood you well.
I think it is vary from project to project and from a
designer to another. Just start and see how much does you take to
finish such project and keep a timing table for your works. After
few projects you will find yourself working faster and got a timing
to your projects.
