Our Commercial Artwork division (CommArt) now is able to provide the new service of developing a new logo for a client via the internet.
Given that most logos and for that matter most all other forms of commercial artwork are now being generated on a computer, it only makes sense to use the internet to provide a better transport medium for client proofs and final artwork.
Quick Turnaround Times
By using the internet to provide this service we are able to cut the turnaround time for a traditionally produced logo from weeks down to a matter of days.
In a particular case we had the logo completed and delivered to the client in less than 48 hours.
Constantly adapting new technologies for new purposes.
We use a new internet standard of file storage call DAV (Digital Authoring & Versioning).
This standard is sometimes referred to as web folders.
While our clients do not use this technology for viewing work-in-progress - it has greatly sped up the time for us to make available files via a web server.
The client is notified via e-mail that a new version of their artwork is available. They are then at liberty to download the artwork at their leisure.
Cross Platform Compatibility
One of the good reasons for using a web server for distributing images is that it is supported by many desktop operating systems.
So whether you have Linux, Macintosh, Windows or some other operating system, all that is needed is a browser that can download files and save them.
We provide at no cost to the client a dedicated area on our web server for their files.
Access to this area is protected by a user-name and password log-on scheme
This way we can protected the privacy of the work we are doing for the client.
