Build a Simple Silverlight and/or Flash Piece


Your Qualifications:

- Speak/read/write English well.

- You are an expert with Silverlight and/or Flash

- You are highly talented artist with a world-class portfolio.

- You know a little CSS, JavaScript, HTML, and Photoshop/Gimp.

- You have at least 5 years of real life work experience doing creative work.

- You have a portfolio of original work.

So, here's the job...


We need an simple interactive world map created in either Flash or Silverlight. We are leaning toward Silverlight because of stability and compatibility with multiple browsers, but you as an expert in these technologies can provide us insight in this regard.

These are both day and night satellite shots of the earth.

We will use your advice as a seasoned artist to decide if we should use a day or night shot as the canvas. Here are two examples you might start with:

Here are requirements for the map:

- The map does not have to be an accurate satellite view of the globe, but it should be pretty accurate. Definitely NOT cartoonish.

- The word "CONNECT" appears across the top in a font that looks good extending across the entire width of the image.

- The continent/country outlines need to be "lighted" or slightly glowing in appearance, or at least a light color.

- Animated arched dotted lines going from one city to another on the map, depicting the route any airline might fly

- There might be 4-5 of these arched dotted lines, do what looks the best artistically while not appearing too crowded/busy

- Show 3 or 4 airplanes moving slowly en-route between a few major markets like NYC and Beijing, Atlanta and Rome, etc.

- The planes should light up too… just like the dots between the cities.

- The background should all be a textured blue, a mix of medium to a little darker than medium blue, and a little lighter than medium blue.

- A couple dozen major city dots will appear across the global map.

- Mousing over a city dot should make the city name pop up glowing.

- Ideally, the user will be able to touch or click on the city dots (lit up) and they quickly zoom in to that city

- Also ideally, after zooming in to a city, a short list of hyperlinked info, preferably retreived dynamically from a database (using SQL) is displayed

- A method of zooming back out from city view to global view is required.
