Older information - for existing clients only
We know that Macs keep going for a lot longer than your average PC, so we still support all the original Macs (see the big list of Mac models at the bottom of this page)

Web site design and hosting
Simple effective designs -- we concentrate on helping clients produce sites that are clear and to the point. Is your site getting the search engine exposure you want? We offer simple inexpensive review services that can pinpoint areas to improve.
Usability and HCI (Human Computer Interaction) evaluation
Surveys, consultancy and training (Includes PCs as well) Is your site easy to use? Does it give visitors access to what they want? Remember, there is no site so simple that an excess of Flash graphics and arcane navigation cannot make it a nightmare to use. Our review service pulls no punches. If your site is keeping visitors away we'll help you find out why. For advice and information on the subject, do have a look at our HCI/usability section.
With many years experience at a major independent Human Factors Research Institute, we can back up our reviews with the latest in research findings. A usable web site does not need to be visually dull, let us help you maximise returns from your site.
Logos and corporate typefaces
We can produce these for both Mac and PC use. An example would be the Northlight Images logo which we produced as single character Postscript and TrueType typefaces. Ideal for inclusion in documents where a consistent look is required but pre-printed materials are not warranted.
We offer a range of Digital Imaging support and bespoke training.
We do not directly sell hardware or software and pride ourselves on giving the best independent (Mac) advice to our clients. However, when required, we can source hard to find specialist or obsolete software and hardware. For the latest Apple hardware and software, you can visit the Apple Store via the link below.
We are often asked where to get good deals on used or Refurbished Apple Macs. Since we don't sell hardware we usually suggest Second Chance PCs in Cambridge who have provided us with spares and system upgrades for several years.
We have a growing collection of Apple Macintosh related information and links. They cover sources of software and detailed support issues. We are always updating the collection so do check regularly.
