Trenorth operates in the Business to Business Sector
Before the days of the internet and websites, companies would prepare leaflets and pamphlets, send them to prospective clients, and hope for the best. With response rates for B2B marketing efforts less than 3%, that means that 97 out of every 100 leaflets either end up in the trash or clutter your intray for a couple of weeks. We didn't know who you were then. So, just because you are reading this, it means that our 'electronic' leaflet has stopped our contribution to the problem of waste in making paper, BUT knowing who you are doesn't make a difference. You could be a casual browser, just looking at where our Gareth works, or just checking the competition. Therefore, we cannot class you as a 'hot-lead' to follow up. So cookies serve no purpose, so we don't use them.

Trenorth's digital media's work has its origins in of all things, the User Interface designs during the 1990s and early intranet systems. From this, the need for splash screens, the standardization of photograghs for archiving and other digital needs soon lead to a form of specialism.
Another need was the ability to CONTROL the use of programs such as MS Publisher, first included in MS Office in 1996. Not only did this allow for non-standard versions of logos, but carefully developed corporate themes based on font and color were often abandoned as low cost programs enabled inexperienced users to replicate what's known as the "ransom note effect", the result of using an excessive number of juxtaposed typefaces. Resized, badly reproduced images also resulted, but hey, who needs a trained designer or coder when the intern can do it for $5?
Addressing these issues became the basis of a few projects undertaken for a specific client in the UK, resulting in our work in web design, digital video and ecommerce, although as an IT company foremost, our digital video services are only undertaken as part of website design and we do currently undertake stand-alone commissions.

What else? CCO, CC BY, CCBY-NC-ND, GPL? There are many traps out there for the unaware, especially when it comes to building your own website. There are many low-cost platforms that allow you to put your own text and images together to form a website using pre-supplied templates, but using those images and sounds? Take the case of the iconic movie, "Metropolis", directed by Fritz Lang in 1925 and released in 1927. In the US, this entered the public domain in 1953 and stayed there until the United States signed the Berne Convention in 1989, promulgated by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (URAA) in in 1994. As a result, use of "Metropolis" requires permission until 2022 and the copyright is held by the F.W. Murnau Foundation, a German film preservation organization. Oh: EVERYTHING on this site belongs to TRENORTH.
What happens if you sell products, for example, hand-knitted fork warmers? If you accept credit cards online, then there is a requirement to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. Handle any kind of health related information? Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act rules apply in addition to the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act. Are you a law firm? The State Bar Association of California has rules on attorney advertising and retention periods for websites.
So, in the worst case, you could be an attorney advertising for clients who were injured by robotic forms and are fans of German films from 1927. How many of the requirements and regulations highlghted here do you think you could fall foul of?
Trenorth goes to great lengths to ensure that images and text, website designs together with the supporting software and infrastructure comply with current rules and requirements. So our robot-loving lawyer's site's images are permissable, there is compliance with privacy, State Bar rules on advertising and the analytics provider's terms of service.
Can we see some of your work? Who do you work for?
And talking of clients, again no, Trenorth will not publish its client list on this website. Not that they would disagree, but Trenorth will never ask. Just look for the Trenorth name on the bottom of the websites. Oh, one last thing: 'mixed emotions' is not a software suite, it really does describe the sentiments that goes into producing great output.
