Flash ushers in a new level of product demos


The old P&G formula of problem, solution and show the damn product in action is every art director’s and copywriter’s nightmare. I remember always looking for ways to demonstrate the ubiquitous product shot and still feeling somewhat obligated to include the spot on my demo reel.

With the evolution of flash, I’m coming across more and more sites the take product demos to a whole new level.

This site takes mens suits and uses everyday situations to demonstrate the fabric’s superiority.

Splat the mat uses real time, fast-forwarding to demonstrate how good these car mats are for everyday usage.

Seen any other good uses of flash as a product demo, please reply.

    Theyre some nice sites right there, with video production made more accessable its not surprising that various mediums are being combined. Makes for some nice sites too, the splat the mat site was particulary fun :p

    Ill try and dig up some links for you later.

    Ok I cant find the links I had before, but an interesting use of the medium is brand promotion through web exclusive content e.g.

    one original song and a number of remixes all available for free, pretty nice site design too!
