Accounting really hasn’t changed for hundreds and hundreds of years. Sure, tax laws become more complex and there are new pyramid schemes being dreamed up nearly every day. But the Principles of Accounting, the way transactions are recorded on a ledger remains unchanged. Teaching students new to the world of accounting the way that transactions actually flow through a ledger can prove very challenging. Dr. Norman Godwin from the Harbert College of Business approached the MPG with the challenge of displaying the way in which these transactions are recorded and subsequently move through the ledger. Utilizing our expertise in Flash, we were able to animate the transactions propagating across the ledger and were able to really bring this to life for a lot of future bean counters.
