::: home ::: Software Overview :::

Designs By Darcy believes that, to provide you with the perfect product for your unique requests, we must maintain an inventory and in-depth knowledge of the most current releases of the most respected and cutting-edge software packages available on the market.

We are always researching, learning, using -- and mastering -- the newest products in the Information Technology industry. Technology advances daily: the more you learn, the more you learn what you don't know!

Nothing can say "out-of-date" as quickly and easily as the out-of-date software that was used to create it.

All of our designs are created using the most sophisticated, cutting-edge software packages currently in use in the industry: Macromedia Studio MX Professional 2004, which includes Dreamweaver MX 2004, Fireworks MX 2004, and Flash Professional MX 2004 .

Additionally, we use Macromedia's RoboInfo V5. RoboInfo offers any size organization a simple way to manage, track, and instantly publish policies and procedures online. RoboInfo also provides end users with powerful navigation for instantly retrieving only the most relevant information.

In 2003 we created a 5,000-page Information Repository Intranet for a Federal Government Agency.

Our graphics are almost entirely original creation; a fact that makes us extremely proud. For graphics creation, we again use the top of the line: Adobe Creative Suite which includes (Photoshop CS, InDesign CS, Illustrator CS, Go Live CS and Acrobat 6 Professional), Macromedia Fireworks MX 2004 and Corel Graphics Suite 11.

We have more than 3,500 fonts, more than 30,000 stock photos, more than 250,000 animated gifs, more than 13,000 professionally created icons, and 2000 sound files available to help you create your business or personal site's unique presence. We can create breadcrumbs, mousetrails, falling snow, and color-matched scroll bars. We can create a personal icon (favicon) that can be downloaded when visitors come to your site -- and the icon will serve as the image if the site is added to the visitor's "favorites." We can add javascript to your pages to show dates, enhance DHTML menu systems, or to create custom printable pages.

We can encrypt your web site so that the source code cannot be viewed nor the site images downloaded.

We use the most current of Microsoft products, as well: Windows XP Professional, Office 2003 Professional, Visio 2003, Publisher 2003, and Project Professional 2003.


We are state-of-the-art. We only utilize well-reserched and reliable tools: the best of the best of the best. This enables us to exceed our customers high-quality professional requirements and standards ... because we already have the highest professional standards ourselves.


We utilize a backup and storage system that includes more than 700 gigabytes of external storage on five different drives. Your site's design and history is always backed up and safe. If you'd like, we can even burn your web site to a CD (or a zip disk, if you'd prefer) and send it to you for your own safekeeping, as well.*
