Eric Jordan has had the honor of being featured in numerous design-related books, online articles, and magazines around the world:
Excerpt: “2Advanced Studios v3 Expansions launched in 2001 and would become the most influential Flash website of all time. Eric Jordan really inspired this new generation of web designers and his work became some of the most copied and emulated ever, even giving rise to sites like Pirated-Sites.com where copied websites were posted. His work also saw the rise in many similar experiences and those would often be called “2Advanced” in their design.”
“2Advanced v3 Expansions is remembered for being the most copied website ever and for being voted “the most influential Flash website of the decade” in the official polls conducted by FWA for Adobe. “
“This book gathers more than 200 websites, and each comes with quotes and insights from the creators themselves—an invaluable peek into the minds of pioneers who paved the pixelized way for many to follow, including Jonathan Gay (Flash), Gabo Mendoza (Gabocorp), Yugo Nakamura (Yugop), Peter Van Den Wyngaert (NRG.BE), Joshua Davis (Praystation), and Eric Jordan (2Advanced).”
“Twenty one inspirational original stories for children, from twenty one internet pioneers, visualised by twenty one modern illustrators.”
Hardcover, 290x360x23 mm., 272 pages.
“How award-winning creative director, motion graphics artist and designer, Eric Jordan, uses Sapphire inside an Adobe After Effects workflow to create slick cyberpunk projects for some of the world’s most well-known brands.”
“FXFactory Interview – Using Yanobox Nodes on People’s Republic of Desire”
“FWA Legends: A series which highlights some of the industry’s most long-serving, respected and successful individuals.”
