Nothing can say "out-of-date" as

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 .

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

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
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.*
