The Illustrated Ape

August 21st, 2009 | researchmaterial

A friend of mine just got published in the magazine THE ILLUSTRATED APE, so I thought I’d take a look at their website.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is a website with opening music provided by Ryuichi Sakamoto. It deserves a visit for that alone. And, as my friend says:

advertisers are scared of it because (ahem) they sometimes print dirty stuff, so it needs your help to stay alive!

  1. A text based website in flash. Sure, advertisers are scared because of the dirty stuff. And not because the format shoots itself in the foot, at all.

  2. why so hatey? flash enrages us all. did you bother looking at their myspace or something instead?

    the ape is a splendid magazine and i will be thumbing it for mucky stuff (as well as art and bits and bobs) as soon as pay day comes. worth an explore, you will find at least one page you’ll want to pull out and stick on the fridge and keep forever.

  3. I like flash just fine, for stuff like bitey castle but for text articles it’s hardly ideal, unless you’re really big (Which I gather they are not) advertisers mainly want to glom off your search engine rankings and in that respect plain text>images embedded in flash
