About Urban Haze

Urban Haze was founded in 2010, it came from corporate blue-chip quality standards that are now embedded into our very DNA, and are now re-used to work equally well helping all clients of any business size.

Over the years, the company has grown steadily, carefully choosing trusted partners to work with to provide the highest quality of services and over that time, we developed a focus.

Our Focus has been to look at our clients’ businesses, to understand their problems and provide digital solutions with things like website growth, business software, online marketing creative and digital strategy in order to solve and grow beyond their problems and to help their businesses thrive.

In 2020, mid-Coranavirus (!) we incorporated and VAT registered.

Whilst the core of Urban Haze in-house solutions remain websites, online marketing, digital photography, creative and IT services, we’ve found these all sit comfortably under the main umbrella of digital consultancy – and putting that first allows us to focus on each client’s unique business requirements and then choose the appropriate solutions.

The company’s portfolio of work and variety of services continues to expand with the idea being to provide a one-stop-shop for any clients who needs help finding digital solutions to solve their problems and grow their business.
