Our Clients

XIC works in partnership with international energy companies, local authority, some major names from the legal and financial sector as well as a multitude of small to medium sized businesses across the North East. Many of these relationships span decades, with XIC providing a full range of communication solutions to fulfil clients’ creative and print requirements.

XIC is about more than design, print and display. Say hello to our products with purpose.

Let us help you reduce risk and promote best practice with bespoke safety materials.


As the exhibition calendar begins to ramp up across all industries, we wanted to create a solution that made designing your stand simple and easy, yet extremely eye catching and unique. To do this, we’ve engineered a bespoke fixing solution that allows a wall-based Tension Fabric System (TFS) to be fitted seamlessly to a shell scheme, providing a stunning frameless appearance, with continuous fabric graphic print. 

With interchangeable graphics and a design that is easy for clients to fit themselves, it's no wonder we've had strong interest in this solution already!

19 of our staff members and building tenants have just completed the QA Level 2 Award in Basic Life Support and Safe Use of an Automated External Defibrillator training course!

Delivered by Forrest Training, this course provides our team with the necessary skills to administer safe, prompt and effective basic life support as well as how to use an automated external defibrillator in emergency situations, which we've also just purchased for our building! 

Our staff has not only learned vital new skills that are important for the workplace, but it is also widely beneficial for outside of work too. Well done to everyone on their new qualification!

Last year, STR took its clients to Murrayfield stadium to watch the highly anticipated Scotland vs All Blacks game. Looking for VIP event material to enhance the overall experience, STR gave us free rein to come up with a concept for the event, the team’s main request? Something that was memorable. 

Find out how we tackled this project in our recent case study (link in bio).

A rebrand for Scottish Adventure Club! 

Looking for something that represented its activity, we delivered a logo that encompassed ideas of exploring, experiences and being surrounded by nature. Using a colour palette that aligns with the outdoors, the new logo is vibrant and distinguishable. 

Following brand completion, we also added vehicle livery to the committee’s van and strategically placed the logo to ensure maximum brand awareness 👌

Check out our video to see the journey to the new brand, and how we’ve presented it across must have items for keen adventurers 🗺

👀Looking for ways to stand out at events and exhibitions? 

We love being creative with backdrops to really draw people’s attention to our clients’ stands. Here we’ve been working on high gloss, brickwork effect vinyl panels for a large shell scheme. The graphic adds a fun concept to the design while being a neutral enough background to not distract from the client’s products and services 🤩

Complete with protective lamination and adhered to rigid PVC, our next step is to trim the boards and apply velcro to the reverse side for our client to easily fix to their stand. Simple, yet eye-catching 👌.
