Graphic and Interface Design
Interface design was an early part of DSV's history, beginning with the development of one of the first animated menu interfaces on the Commodore 64 for a role-playing game utility called DML (Dungeon Master's Log). We were also responsible for the introduction screen, often animated, for several BBS's (Bulletin Board Systems, the prescursor to the modern forums). We later created a more fantasy-like interface for a Mac OS game from Fantasoft named Realmz. The package, titled R.I.F.L.E (Realmz InterFaceLift Expansion) was carried on the CD of an issue of Inside Mac Games and served as the inspiration of the game interface a year later. We have also provided numerous forms, newsletters and book designs for clients over the years.
Our staff has been working in the IT industry for over 35 years (combined) on various architectures and platforms at businesses from small town government to large enterprise. We are knowledgeable in server administration, networking, project management, resource planning and tracking, technical documentation writing, hardware and software troubleshooting, software development and scripting.
