The marketing industry has changed dramatically since we were founded in 2002. The rise of responsive web design, ad-aware audiences demanding more creative print design and competitive marketplaces making way for bigger, better branding.

Our talented team of designers, developers and marketers are on-hand to deliver engaging and result-driven projects whoever your audience is. Our great expanse of multi-industry experience means you’re in safe hands.

Work Examples

South Tyneside TEN

TEN has an excellent track record of managing and delivering employment and training services in South Tyneside and supporting clients who are long term unemployed. We built a website which helps users prepare for and find work by listing CV examples, interview tips and programmes that TEN offer.

Durham Box

Durham Box is one of the UK’s leading designers and manufacturers of corrugated cardboard packaging. Urban River built a website which helped them raise their profile ahead of the competition and helped to generate a greater awareness.

Wag and Company

Wag & Company is a registered charity enabling visiting dog teams to build meaningful friendships with older dog lovers. From bespoke, secure data capture forms for volunteers, to clear and simple navigation for nursing homes or individuals that are looking to book a visit from a Wag team, we ensured the website was as easy to navigate as possible.

Mortgage Pathways

We created an identity with a modern graphical look and a friendly face. The final logo is in total contrast to the marketplace ensuring that Mortgage Pathways is easily remembered in an otherwise crowded sector. The new website provides useful information, is very easy to update and integrates with a live real time feed of mortgage best buys.

Pass 'N' Go

We developed a website using responsive techniques so that instructors and pupils can use the system on their mobile phones, tablets and desktop devices. This has given Pass’N’Go instructors the ability to manage their schedule in their car no matter where they are in the country.


Our work to date has included the development of a range of product based brands, streamlining and creating consistency across their entire marketing strategy including advertising, exhibitions, direct mail, e-marketing and print based marketing, plus a new ecommerce website.

Client Testimonials

We have worked on digital, print and design projects with Urban River for five years now and they have transformed our brand and given us a new visual identity in-keeping with our original logo and the company values. We have lots of thoughts and ideas at Helen McArdle Care, but the team are always able to encompass them all, whilst keeping the original brief at the forefront of the project. All of the Urban River team are very helpful and work hard to help us to achieve our marketing goals.

- Rachel Todd, Marketing Manager, Helen McArdle

With our continued investment in the latest plant and machinery, a new website that showcased Durham Box at our very best to drive new business was central to our growth plans. Having done such a fantastic job with our last website, it was an easy choice to re-engage with the Urban River team once again. We couldn’t be happier with the new site and being able to work with a local company and continue supporting North East business was very important to us.

- Richard Turnbull, Durham Box

The Urban River team have done a fantastic job, in a very short time, to create and develop our website and its supporting recruitment processes and database. We couldn’t be happier with quality of their work.

- Diane Morton, Wag and Company Charity Director

We would just like to say a massive thank you to Carl, Carly, Craig, and David, for helping us to get our new financial services brand off the ground. The process has been very painless. We would not hesitate to recommend you all to anyone.

- All the team at Mortgage Pathways

Urban River have been handling our marketing, design and websites including ecommerce site for 3 years. In that time we have found their work to be excellent quality. With their help, we have managed to hold a dominant position in our market place on the web and our business has gone from strength to strength as a result of that.
