December 2022 highlights

We can’t believe we’re already well into December! Take a look below for an overview of our favourite design and display projects and to see recent work we’ve done for Boskalis to help it transform its office space.  For some festive content, check out how we’ve been supporting two incredible, local charities with their impressive Christmas campaigns and we’ve also dropped a note of our seasonal hours too!

2022 design and display favourites

From creative design projects to producing attention-grabbing displays, we’ve taken some time to round up our favourites from 2022 in this video! 

Boskalis’ office revamp

Leading specialist in subsea solutions, Boskalis, was looking to revamp its office design and liven up the space for staff and visitors. Determined to incorporate its vessels, project work, company logo and its values into the design, they wanted something with impact, something attention-grabbing. 

Check out our recent case study to find out how we transformed a blank canvas into a room filled with on-brand murals and striking wallscapes…

Instant Neighbour’s Giving Tree Appeal

This year marks Instant Neighbour’s 32nd Giving Tree Appeal, a fantastic project that we’re thrilled to be a part of. This initiative aims to distribute gifts to children across the North-east ensuring no child goes without a present at Christmas.

We’ve been one of many local businesses who have contributed to this campaign over the years and for this season, we’ve produced 5,000 tags for the organisation, heavily supporting the overall cost to make it possible.

This complex project has two designs to factor into the print run. Unnamed tags range from 8-18 years and are gender specific, while named tags range from birth to 18 years and feature an ID number, critical for distribution once produced. This method ensures each individual receives an age-appropriate and desirable gift.

All tags are made from an eco-friendly, special non-tear material which contains no chlorine, plasticisers, PVC, BPA or solvents, poisons or heavy metals.

AberNecessities’ Believing in Magic campaign

We’re incredibly proud to have supported AberNecessities with its biggest ever annual Christmas campaign, ‘Believing in Magic’. 
This initiative aims to gift the magical feeling that’s at the very heart of Christmas by distributing curated and thoughtful gifts to more than 2000 children in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire. 
Raising awareness of this remarkable campaign, we have printed and installed this impressive, large-scaled, self-adhesive vinyl to hoarding in Aberdeen’s prime shopping location, Union Square. 
Ensuring the image is impactful and easy to read, we used a matt laminated finish to defuse any glare created by the centre’s indoor lighting and due to being placed in a high footfall location, we also added a protective layer to the vinyl to maintain its condition.

Festive opening hpours

As part of the seasonal break, XIC will close on Friday, December 23rd and we’re back on Wednesday, January 4th. 
On behalf of everyone at XIC, we’d like to thank our clients for their business throughout 2022. We’ve been able to work on some exciting and very creative projects this year and we’re very much looking forward to helping you with all your design, print and display requirements in 2023!
