Flash technology allows us to create animated movies or dynamic content and display this on your web page in much the same way as a TV advert. Flash is ideal when you require your site to be aimed at a particularly young or trendy market. The added interactivity that flash can bring to a web site will help keep visitors coming back for more.
Flash works via the use of a plug-in which downloads into your browser. We make sure that all of our flash files and corresponding web pages are tested and viewable in all of the major browsers, such as Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer and OPERA.
Adobe Flash - previously called Shockwave Flash and Macromedia Flash - is a set of multimedia technologies developed and distributed by Adobe Systems and earlier by Macromedia.
An example of a flash movie:
Since its introduction in 1996, Flash technology has become a popular method for adding animation and interactivity to web pages; Flash is commonly used to create animation, advertisements, various web page components, to integrate video into web pages, and more recently, to develop rich Internet applications. (Extract from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adobe_Flash)
Since the advent of broadband download times have increased greatly. A hugh majority of your customers will no doubt be using a broadband internet connection with a minimum speed of around 1mb, although some still do use slower dial-up 56k and ISDN.
This means that using flash correctly will not add greatly to your page download times. Flash works by displaying a movie and as the movie progresses it will request further movies or pages from the server. This lessens the download time as only a small portion of the movie needs to be downloaded to create the main page or web site interface.
Each flash animation that we create is optimised to download in the quickest time possible on any internet connection.
A full flash web site is an ideal solution if you have a new product or service to launch. Many larger companies use a full flash web site as a mini site contained within their main website or online ecommerce store. With flash you can allow a fully interactive product demonstration allowing the end user of your site to view the product in 3 dimensions before purchasing.
One of the main drawbacks of using a fully flash web site is its inability to cater for people who have disabilities or use screen readers. Another major drawback is the inability for search engines to index data contained within a Flash movie or .SWF file.
This means that extra emphasis must be placed upon optimising the underlying HTML code for the search engines.

With many businesses turning towards advertising over the internet, flash technology has quickly been utilised for its advantages in online animated adverts.
The advantages between having a static web banner type advert and an animated flash advertisement quickly become apparent. The animated flash advert will always catch an end users eye first, it allows you to include images, video, sound and even forms to collect data.

Is your web site accessible by over 8 million disabled users in the UK?
If not, contact us to find out how we can help you and your business meet web site accessibility requirements as set out by the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA)
Web accessibility refers to the practice of making website's usable by people of all abilities and disabilities. When a website is correctly designed, developed and edited, all users can have equal access to information and functionality.
Section III of the DDA (Disability Discrimination Act) makes it unlawful for a UK service provider or business to discriminate against a disabled person by refusing to provide any service which it provides to members of the public. As a UK based business you are required to comply if you provide goods, facilities and services to the general public.
Section III of the DDA, which refers to accessible website's, came into force on 1st October 1999 and the Code of Practice for this section of the DDA was published on 27th May 2002. This means that the majority of website's have been in breach of the law for over five years.
