Vixen History

Vix founded the Vixen brand in 1996, which began as the specialist design services business, Vixen Designs. Until 2010, Vixen Designs incorporated Production Design (for TV, Film and Theatre), Graphic Design, Furniture Design and Historic Interiors, and is now the business arm of all Vixen’s design work.

In 2011, the Vixen brand diversified to include publishing services under the Imprint: VixenUK, which specialises in factual narration for young children and the communication of complex information to the general public.

In October 2015 Vixen International Events was founded, to manage Vixen VIPs and deliver freelance assistance to UK events, businesses and individuals, specialising in (but not exclusive to) the Space Sector.
