Arcana Media Prices:
Design New Website: $ 1 Million U.S. | Update Existing Website:
Arcana Media can design a
multimedia intro animation (or "movie") for your website or
electronic presentation using Macromedia Flash in conjunction with other
complimentary programs (such as SWISH or SWIFT 3D).
Included here is a Flash animation that opened
an earlier version of our website. It's about 135 kb in total file size,
but begins streaming (playing) after downloading a fraction of that
amount. These can be inserted into your website's main page or play full
screen when a visitor enters your site.
Internet Browser Icons
This feature adds a small icon - custom
made for your website - when a visitor bookmarks your site.
They'll appear on the most viewer's address bar when they're at your
home page and in their "Favorites" menu,
where your site's url and name will stand out from the
Arcana Media is capable of producing regular animated banners, but believe flash banners are far more versatile and interactive
for a similar file size.
Early editions of ENN
(Electronic News Network) feature flash banners on their main page. Since ENN
"reports" on events in
the year 2009 & 2010 (see our Portfolio page for details), these banners advertise products
or services that don't exist...and likely never will. We added these
banners for comic relief or parodies for participants and normally linked to sites related to the
Movie: One common thread in a few of the ENN
fake headlines (see our portfolio section for details about that site) dealt was
an upcoming hit summer movie. In ENN #7 we added a flash banner that
included sound to "promote" this movie, much like studios do
now. Be sure to click on "Restart with Sound" button
when it's loaded. This banner, including animation & sound,
is only 56 kb.
THIS BANNER LOADS ALONG WITH THE ENN MAIN
The internet will continue evolving between now and the year 2009, and
it's likely software like "Net-Nanny" - an actual product - will
be needed to keep young eyes away from inappropriate sites... especially
if websites are presented in 3D. :-)
The Aibo Assault Dog
(26 kb) was the third banner we designed for
ENN. 2001 was the second anniversary for the real AiBo
electronic pet, so with 2009 being its tenth anniversary we celebrated
that event with a new electronic dog... a guard dog!
The Queen's University Campus Security
banners to draw attention to programs and services available to the
The RAD (Rape Aggression Defense)
Course banner is an early
Flash effort that's about 165 kb in size, although it is designed to
stream: play before being completely downloaded. That's too high
for a banner most companies would want on their publicly accessible
website, but virtually all University staff and students have
high speed internet access, so size (for once) doesn't matter.
Thefts on Campus had its awareness raised by another
early flash banner for the department. One benefits
for creating this banner in flash - in addition to animation and
sound in a relatively small file - is the ability to let viewers link
to more than one web page on one banner. The bike theft banner allows visitors
to register their bike with Security, view the University's bike
regulations, read tips on properly locking a bicycle, and see the
University's bike theft statistics for that year. This banner rings in
at only 39 kb.
