Online or offline, Advent has embraced the digital movement from the
beginning. Our clients have grown to rely on our abilities to re-purpose
messages across multiple platforms and diverse media.
No two web sites or intranet sites are alike, but one thing sets
Advent-created web sites apart – energy! Whether it’s a vibrant site
that crackles with animations or a crisp, navigation-friendly “front end”
for a sophisticated e-commerce site, we have the skills, tools and
experience to help your site reach a new level of effectiveness.
We start with a plan. Advent will work with you to develop a map of
the site’s functionality before we start to design, saving you time and
money. Our process allows for understanding of audiences and key
messages, while maintaining visual consistency.
Imagine having access to your company’s entire catalog of digital images from
anywhere in the world at the click of your mouse. Imagine if updating your web site
was as easy as typing text in Word®. Imagine if all your corporate collateral, and sales
and marketing documents were located and managed automatically from one central
location; so that with a laptop and network connection, you could access the most
up-to-date materials while waiting for your plane at the airport or sitting at Starbucks.
That’s the power of PHP-based, Web Applications. At Advent, we can create this
custom software, unbound by the restrictions of your desktop. By moving applications
to the Web, we make them more dynamic, more accessible and more secure.
PHP-based web applications can save time and money by automating routine tasks,
managing large amounts of data from one location, or generating new documents on
the fly. We’ll consult with you to create the best customized web application to suit
your specific needs. Or, for a quick fix, we can offer one of our pre-built PHP-based web
applications, that can be modified to your specifications.
Digital Image Library
Use our easy-upload tool to store all of your images in a fully searchable, web-based
archive. Our Digital Image Library automatically creates thumbnails for browsing and
multiple resolutions for downloading.
Web Content Manager
This system uses a familiar, text-editor style of interface to update your web content. If you’re constantly adding new information to
your site, you know how time consuming and costly the process can be. With this web application, adding new content to one page of
the site could automatically update the same information throughout the site. No more clumsy HTML editors or slow FTP uploads.
Corporate Identity Manager
With this tool, creating a full suite of print-ready collateral materials such as business cards and letterhead, can be as simple as
filling in pre-designated fields for an employee such as company name, address, and phone
number etc. The output is completely customized to your corporate identity standards and
ready to go to the printer.
In large corporate settings making sure that everyone has the most current information can be hard. We’ve created an online
“desktop” for storing digital files such as Word docs, PDFs, Excel spread sheets or Power Point presentations. With a simple “Files
and Folders” interface, users can navigate to any document they need, or just search for it. The Document Manager automatically
stores old versions of documents so information is never truly lost, and with tiered-access, certain sections can be restricted to
management while other sections are available to everybody.
Discover how Advent can help you streamline your operations and increase productivity with just the click of a mouse.

audience as effectively as the moving image. No one understands this better
than Advent. With a digital production department that boasts some of the
best talent and hardware in the industry, Advent has both the infrastructure and

Digital Video production is a natural extension of our digital design skills. With
complete production and editing facilities in-house, we make efficient use of
visual resources, creating full-featured presentations (DVD or conventional
video) or crisply edited clips for web sites and stand-alone interactive CDs.
Advent’s talented digital production staff can turn the unimaginable
into virtual reality through the art of 3D Animation.
3D animation can clarify a complex process, present incredible details,
offer a dramatic visualization unattainable through any other digital
communication medium or simply quot;wowquot; people with attention-grabbing
visuals. By being able to place a virtual camera into an environment
unthinkable for safety reasons and/or economic feasibility, 3D
animation can be used for a variety of purposes.
Our only limitation to visually communicating our client’s message
through 3D animation is our imagination.

small. From multi-tier monoliths custom built to your company’s show needs

craftsmanship, Advent’s custom booths offer an exceptional solution to
