Microsoft Office 2008

Mac OSX (ver. 10.5)
PixelPoint updates systems as Apple releases upgrades. Advanced usage and networking skills since "System 6" (1989).
Hardware
Now using iMac, MacBook, and G5/Dual Macs. Our HP printers (B&W & color), Epson scanners, and backup drives are networked (1000baseT).

As with most design firms in the U.S., we are Macintosh-based (Windows files are always welcome). We upgrade our hardware regularly (e.g., our primary Macs are 2008 or newer). We maintain our fully-licensed software with the latest patches / updates / upgrades, and continue sharpening our skills with online and classroom training programs.

• Modern – PixelPoint's extensive design-tech history means real-world troubleshooting skills. Business-speed broadband (with available client-login FTP-transfers), gigabit ethernet, and hi-speed printers/scanners (as well as hourly backups and anti-virus software) keep the clients' jobs flowing smoothly.

• Old School – Our roots go back to the days of stat-cameras, imagesetters, and paste-up boards. Precise skills honed during those "mechanical" years allow 21st century projects to move error-free in the modern digital production workflow.
