Ex-active (and our 40th Anniversary)


The truth is none of us are getting any younger. When you reach a certain age you start to realise that perhaps you’re not as hip and trendy as you once were. Sometimes all that’s required is a new wardrobe. Other times it’s something more drastic…

The Xactive brand has served us well since it was launched by Harvey back in 2004 (yes it really has been that long). Back then it enabled us to segment each of the services we offered, particularly our digital printing press and photography studio. However in the last few years we have found ourselves evolving again, meeting our customers needs and adapting to new technologies.

To mark the special occasion of 40 years since the business started we’re pleased to announce our new name: Host Design Studio, together with a shiny new logo, brand identity and website.

Take a look around.
