About Urban River

Urban River is a creative design agency working from the seaside town of South Shields. We provide brand identities, print design and web design to Newcastle, the surrounding areas of the North East and UK-wide.

Customer service is at the heart of everything we do and since 2002 we have been building great long-term relationships with our varied client base.

From helping start up businesses to establish their brand identity to creating attractive web design experiences for professional service firms and maximising leads for international manufacturers. Creating seamless communications (both online and offline) and showcasing your company is what we do best.

Our happy, ambitious and open-minded team will fully get to grips with what you want to achieve and accommodate your every need. We thrive on a challenge, are not afraid of hard work and will always go that extra mile!

“Work with us and you will be a name not a number!”

P.S All websites we design adapt to the device visitors are using; desktops, laptops, tablets and Smartphones (which is where it’s at!) The geeks call this responsive design.
