What We Offer

The perfect solution for you and your visitors.  Our design, your results.

We can accomplish everything you will need to get your web site up and running.  From a simple structure dedicated solely for information, or perhaps a rich interactive graphical site for promotion, right towards dynamically driven solutions to help sell your products and services securely over the web - we can handle it all.

From a logo to a complete web-site - we can digitise your stationery, work from your existing designs, or even if you don’t already have a corporate image we can create one for you.  And it doesn’t just stop at a web-site, for today’s paperless office, we can provide e-Stationery (for e-mail of course!) - furthermore, all your IT solutions from Active Technology.

Integrated Electronic Commerce Solutions are very much the mainstream.  Everyday, more and more Companies are embracing the logical progression of e-Commerce.  You can be sure that your competitors are!  We can provide a variety of options depending on your budget and/or product line.

With Active MediaForge you receive a bespoke solution for your business, "template web-site" is a forbidden phrase in our offices!  And remember, you retain the copyright on the web design.

Web presentationWho We Are

Active MediaForge formed in the year 2000.  Headed by James Weston, it's a sister brand to the leading Aylesbury based IT specialist Active Technology, and part of Actopia Communications Ltd.

The new media forge burst into life evolving to cope with the growing demand from Active’s clients for specialist Internet solutions - all encompassed within Active Technology’s ethos as the One-stop IT Solution Provider.  Since then, the Active MediaForge client-base has grown considerably, gaining projects of all sizes and descriptions, from all kinds of businesses and organisations.  The team remains a firm fixture right under Actopia’s roof.

How We Do it

Accessible websites.

We take special care to ensure that your web-site is as reliable as your business is - your clients would expect nothing less - because on first contact, image is everything.  However, if your ‘image’ takes too long to load or even fails, you can guarantee that your visitor will be thinking about clicking on to a competitor’s site.

Only the finest ingredients will do

Where to Start

Personal service.

Book an appointment today and arrange to visit us for a meeting.  A face-to-face meeting will give us the best opportunity to gather your requirements.  It will help us to truly customise every aspect of your web presence, brainstorm and storyboard ideas into a cohesive strategy, and provide you with a fixed price quotation.  No hassle - we’ll give advice, the choices are flexible and completely yours.

During your meeting with our top designer we’ll talk about all conceivable avenues for your web presence to take form.  We’ll set time-scales and deadlines if necessary and guide you through our service with an overview of all that is The Active Way.

When We’ve Finished

Finished!?  We’re only getting started, particularly if this is your first outing on to the ’net.

We’re interested in striking up a business relationship, one that will help you keep your web-site alive and where we help you get the very best out of the Internet.

Active MediaForge offers comprehensive maintenance agreements to keep your site looking fresh and up-to-date (as the Internet should be!); Competitive Search Engine campaigns (keeping your site "up there"); tips and advice; integrated IT Solutions, and much more.

As time goes by and you see the Internet as crucial ground, we’ll be there to help evolve your web-site to the next level.  If you become more confident and want to take control of your own site, we can supply all the necessary software (and hardware) and expertly set up your system - typically, if you can use a word processor, you’ll be able to pick up the threads easily.

Mike and I are extremely pleased with the quality of your work and the result created, and would be pleased to recommend you to any other individual or business requiring an innovative and high-quality web site. We have received nothing but praise for the site.”

“Many thanks for your work ... If I told you what I really think I’d embarrass you!  Professional as always!”
“I have to say that getting on for 12 months on, the site still makes the same impact on me as it did initially. It’s simple, it’s very pleasing to the eye, but it’s also extensive.”

Roly Stuart-Jervis,
Group 1 Racing

“...Wow! Absolutely great work on the website! I cannot commend you highly enough for the rapid updates too, especially given that I previously used a dedicated graphic designer for all my logos and icons. Not any more - these savings alone will more than pay for the site...”
