What I found interesting is that most of those site REQUIRED flash/javascript.
When I viewed them with JS turned off most failed miserably.

All beautiful websites. Most rely on or utilize Flash somehow. Would be curious to see how creative agencies can promote themselves without using Flash.

Okay, I didn’t go through all of these (you’ll see why in a minute), but the ones I did go through (the ones at the start of the list) were absolutely horrible on mobile.

Sponge Agency:
This site actually says “Alternate HTML content should be placed here.” — Seriously? SERIOUSLY?!

The Holla Agency:
Ugly as sin, but at least you can click the navigation (which doesn’t show up correctly as most of it is under text). On the interior pages, the content is mostly readable; however, the sharing buttons hover over parts of the content and you can’t read it anymore.

Smart Inc:
The layout sort of shows up, but clicking the links gets you no content.

It was at this point that I was actually impressed by the fact that Freckle mostly worked. And that’s sad.

Che:
Asks you to download Flash player, but at least offers you contact information.

I stopped here, because I realized that the chances of any of these actually working on mobile were about as good as my chances of winning the lottery, getting struck by lightening, and finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, all in the same 5 minutes.

I’m not asking for the same experience, I just want AN experience on mobile. Is that really so difficult?

I really like M/C/C’s website. Just kidding that’s my own. Thanks for the link and mention. We will be sure to return the respect.

Great article, but I agree with some of the users that everything has to be flash based.
@Katy – We have actually tried to make a great looking site, focusing on creativity user experience AND design – Feel free to comment on the design- http://www.webzoo.dk (don’t want to spam the fora).

This are almost all flashed based, I’d like to see more sites using jquery/javascript instead of relying on flash.

I think it fits nicely with the others. It’s html5 for the browsers that support it, flash for others. Alternate mobile version. Looks great:)
