International architect Benoy’s website,, does the job well but has one rather surprising feature

Webmaster’s verdict

Benoy’s website,, does the job well, with clear and consistent navigation, and colours that are bright but not too harsh on the eyes.

It has, however, used something you don't see much nowadays – a landing page with both Flash and HTML site options. Back when Flash started to get big, these were all the rage, as you could have a fancy Flash site backed up with an accessible site for non-Flash users.

But now,’s stats show that 95% of our visitors are Flash-enabled, making this kind of accessibility a waste of time. You essentially have to update two websites every time you add content to your site. Benoy hasn’t really employed any clever Flash techniques here that couldn’t be achieved with some clever Google-friendly HTML & JavaScript, which makes me wonder why they’ve bothered.
