about us

We started out over 15 years ago with the simple aim of connecting brands and businesses with their customers through great design.

Today this goal still rings true. We love nothing more than getting our teeth into a brief and seeing where we can take the creative journey.

Aktiv is a general creative and design agency based in Oxfordshire.

Here we can be found aiming our sights high to impress our clients. Whether it’s traditional print, digital or branding it is the bottom line effectiveness that counts.

On the face of it our values are probably similar to many other businesses. We place value in honesty, trust, passion and reliability.

The difference is we don’t just talk the talk, we walk the walk! However, possibly more important than all of this, we’re happy and enjoy what we do.

We love cake

Being creative all day takes a lot of brain power, so a slice of cake is never far away.

We love tea

Hydration is the key to keeping your concentration going and besides we need something to wash down all the cake!

We love keeping fit

If you ignore the cake and tea our bodies are our temples! So we have a strict regime of star jumps and running on the spot every 30 mins… not.

We have been using Aktiv for around 1 year now and have been absolutely over the moon with what they have achieved for us. From our initial meeting with Andy who has a wealth of knowledge and ideas right through to end production, we have never been disappointed. They always listen to our brief and come up with exactly what we are looking for, we very rarely have to go back with any major amends. The artwork quality is fantastic and I would always recommend them to anyone looking for a professional, fast and accurate design agency.
