What I Do

Why Xiphos?

“Xiphos” roughly means “penetrating light” in Greek, and was a term given to swords used by Greek soldiers. In ancient times, swords were a symbol of truth overcoming falsehood. In Medieval literature, they represented intellect and decision making. Marketing has an unfortunate reputation of being manipulative. Let’s fight that perception. This is a new era of online interaction that benefits local enterprise.
