Our Past, Your Future¶
When X Studios came to fruition, being a design and development studio was our core focus. The digital landscape was different then. As we moved through creating custom web applications, we continued to grow year after year as a company.
With big ideas and a lot of passion, X Studios was born in early 2006. From the very beginning, we had no funding, no pre-established clients or even an office. What we did have, was a massive fire for ‘doing it right’ and producing stellar work, each and every time.
Project by project our clients have grown. In just a short span, we have been privileged to work with some of the largest brands in the world – Red Bull®, Royal Carribean, EA Sports, Universal Parks & Resorts, Disney, Google, Intel®, Coca-Cola®, T-Mobile, Mastercard®, Halo®, Lady Gaga and more.
