About | Everything you need to know about Xibit

Xibit is the brainchild of our Managing Director, Ian Berry. He started Xibit Ltd back in 2007. Xibit Web Design was spun out of Xibit Ltd as web design was Ian’s passion and the market where Xibit previously concentrated its business was badly affected by the current economic climate.

People often ask where the name Xibit came from. The best way to explain is to first break Xibit in to three sections, ‘X’, ‘ib’ and ‘it’. In reverse order the ‘it’ comes from Information Technology, the market where Xibit focused its business. ‘ib’ are the initials of our MD, Ian Berry. Then finally the ‘X’ was added ‘to make it sound cool’, to quote Ian.
