I wanted to get feedback on a project I just finished for the Super Bowl that lists all of the events related to the event, as well as things to go see and do around Detroit.

Any feedback on the map and interface would be greatly appreciated.

Nice job, Jon! Very engaging piece of Flash design.

About the only "constructive criticism" I could come up with at this point is your use of type. The placement of text labels on the "main" downtown Detroit map, as well as other locations such as the section numbers on the Ford Field detail, almost appear to be a bit of an after-thought. Also, having dark-blue text overlapping dark-gray block/street boundaries (Detroit Lions color scheme?) also makes the text MUCH more difficult to read. That, and little touches such as not having "John R Street", "E/W Crescent Lane", etc. follow the path of the actual curved street (straight text label). The legibility of text labels though would be my primary concern...as it detracts/distracts from the overally quality of the piece just a bit. At least for us "map snobs"! :rolleyes: I'm sure the average map-user on the street probably won't pay too much attention to that....but if you are looking for suggestions on what you can do to improve the piece, making the text more legible/attractive would be my primary comment.

Hope that helps!
