Design goes beyond the appearance of a page. As with our bus banners for HW Audio, we were able to produce 14 different banners for the production price of one due to our creative approach to the production artwork itself.

We are fully licensed for the Adobe Suite of programs. We have Adobe approval, and act as consultants on a regular basis.

Always at the cutting edge, Adobe have superceded Quark XPress (which we used to use) as the DTP program of choice. In the early days of desktop publishing, XPress definitely had the edge, as its typography was far superior to anything Adobe had to offer (at the time this was PageMaker.

However, with the advent of InDesign, the tables have turned, and Adobe has far better tools for typography, with advanced kerning options and dynamic justification, along with full implementation of the OpenType standard.

Everybody's got it - why not use it? Although Office programs are very popular, they're not well suited to print. That shouldn't stop us making use of them though. We can still take your documents and make sure you get the best out of them.

 

For example, with Microsoft PowerPoint, we can take your files, incorporate professional video and audio, add interactive quiz elements, and integrate the results into a Virtual Learning Environment to help with large organisation
