Flex is the technology for creating cutting edge web applications, both in terms of functionality and design—it is easy to put together an application that works and looks great. But what if you want to customize the look and feel of your application, so that it doesn\'t look like every other Flex application out there? That\'s not quite as simple a proposition. However, help is at hand with this book. Foundation Flex for Designers is a dream come true for any designer working on customizing the look and feel of Flex applications. It takes you through how to customize style and layouts using CSS, how to bring design assets into Flex from applications such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Fireworks, and Flash, how to spice up your design work with some handy ActionScript 3.0 techniques, and even a look forward to designing hybrid desktop/web applications with Flex and AIR. It culminates with several design-oriented case studies, including a video picker application, picture gallery, customer service site, and more.
