MAKE THE SMART MOVE
STUDIO531 was originally established as an art portofolio website in late 1999 demonstrating and showcasing the artwork, designs and animations of founder/owner Charlie Rubel. The original intent of the website was only to show or make the artwork accessible to the world at large via the world wide web.
From 1999 through 2008, STUDIO531 was a web design, development and animation studio serving a client base located largely in the Southern California area.
In the 3rd quarter of 2008, STUDIO531 moved it’s expertise from web design and development to Flash animation, focusing on entertainment types of flash animation as opposed to navigational or informational. STUDIO531 has been working with Flash since 1996, when it was actually called Future Splash Animator. That was when Netscape dominated the browser market. Remember that? Wow. That’s more than 10 years ago now.
Over the last several years, STUDIO531 realized that it’s business was increasingly more focused on updates and maintenance rather than the creative. The end result being a move back to something more creative for 2009.
With a solid understanding of the web including design, css, development, programming, marketing and search engine optimization, STUDIO531 now intends to focus on and provide comprehensive and entertaining flash animation and multimedia solutions to a variety of clients who see and value entertainment as a medium of marketing on the web.
STUDIO531 still maintains websites for a handful of clients, but no longer takes on any new clients outside of a flash animation project. STUDIO531 is additionally available as an SEO consultant.
