Q : Describe your company in 5 words.
A : Bright, unique, stand-out, blue... green!

Q : Where do you see your company in 10 years time?
A : At the rate AWD is presently growing, we hope to have offices open in each of the capital cities in Australia, as well as Auckland, New Zealand, and Los Angeles, California - we already have clients in all of the aforementioned cities.

Q : How was your company name chosen?
A : AWD starting off as 'Amazing Web Design' - I can't help my bad taste in business names... I was only fourteen at the time! Since, we've evolved into 'AWD Web Solutions'. This name portrays our business philosophy a little better: providing complete web solutions, not just web design.

Digital Rights Management (DRM)
The Internet has come a long way since its inception as a military communications network. More and more information is becoming available, and broadband Internet access speeds are ever increasing. Until recently, music and video media file sizes were just too big to transfer in a timely manner. However with residential broadband speeds of up to 30Mbps now available in Australia (BigPond 2007), illegally downloading large multimedia files – such as music, videos and even full high-definition movies – is becoming easier and extremely fast. DRM is the entertainment industry’s answer to the illegal distribution of copyrighted works over the Internet.

As a global sporting brand, it is not a question of whether or not Reebok should have a website. They simply must have a website. The purpose of this report is to critically analyse their current website,, and suggest alternative or new ways of presenting their users information according to the theories behind multimedia interaction.
