WELCOME TO XIC.COM

Hello!

WE’RE A FRIENDLY AND HARD-WORKING BUNCH, COMBINING CREATIVE AND PRODUCTION EXPERTISE.
OUR COMMON AIM: TO HELP YOU COMMUNICATE EFFECTIVELY WITH YOUR CUSTOMERS.

Our average day includes birthing new brands on the studio Macs, jazzing up digital presentations, pinging client e-shots into thousands of inboxes and printing many, many sheets through our high-performing printing presses.

Three decades. Three core services. Welcome to XIC.

Is your business seeking to raise its profile? We’ll work with you to make a positive impact. We’ll also assist with messaging and advise on the best marketing channels to reach your audience.

Design + print + digital expertise = Team XIC.

DESIGN

Great design doesn’t simply attract attention. It fosters engagement.


Whether you’re starting from scratch or fine-tuning an existing brand, we’ll bring your visual identity to life.

Our creative team love all aspects of the branding process – creation, development and implementation.

Already have a corporate identity? We’ll respect the recognition and loyalty surrounding it and help it to evolve alongside your business.

One-off campaign, event or piece of literature? We happily work on the smaller stuff too.

PRINT

Nothing quite equals the touch, smell or impact of a great-quality piece of print.


Despite the popularity of digital, physical marketing products will never go away.

Consider this: A world without sleek stationery, glossy brochures, bold banners and hot-off-the-press newsletters would be a very dull place indeed.

Print needn’t be the tortoise to the online hare.  Thanks to new print technology, turnaround times are increasingly fast with no compromise on quality.

DIGITAL

How do your customers communicate with you? Chances are that screens and broadband connections have a fair bit to do with it.


Hence our range of digital services. We understand how the online and offline worlds work together. As a result, we’re capable of producing strong communications that translate well across different media.

Our digital services include e-mail marketing, static and animated presentations and web page design.
