The brief

With their own in-house design resources, the client had specific ideas about what they wanted, including a full-screen window, a rising shutter on the opening page and a degree of limited animation.
The main task was, through a good deal of technical expertise, to make these ideas work on-screen, in different browser environments and with layout specifications determined by users' screen resolution.

The execution

A combination of Javascript and server-side coding was used to control the way the site worked.
This enabled us to specify certain conditions at the outset, which would then be used to generate documents which would be faster to load with universal browser compatibility.
The client was particularly happy that, after receiving printed visuals and images on disk, we were able to handle all issues of page generation and loading, as well as the layout and optimisation of images for the Internet.


The project, while some time in preparation of the concept, was finished in good time for the anticipated launch of the web site.
The website now provides an on-line brochure to showcase the company's portfolio and support its traditional marketing activities.
Activia also provide hosting and ongoing maintenance of the web site.
