why urban hippos?

There are hundreds of custom web design and application development companies. What makes Urban Hippos different? In short, everything.

Our focus is in developing projects for new or existing businesses that require a high-end design solution at a competitive price. The Urban Hippos team has an advertising and design agency background and have worked on massive projects that involved everything from print to television commercials and online solutions for clients such as DELA, GANT, Gran d’Italia, ICS, Mitsubishi, Natuurmonumenten, Peugeot, Citroën, Marktplaats, Proefdiervrij, Route Mobiel, UNICEF and TOTAL. We’re overqualified to serve you and that’s a good thing because it means we can do the work faster, quicker and cheaper than anyone else.

Another reason we are able to charge competetive fees for our services is because we work closely with you to figure out exactly what you need before any of the actual technical work begins. Once we agree on every single aspect of your brand or website, we then plow through the work and deliver the project quickly; this tremendously lowers the hours spent on the project. We are very passionate about helping entrepreneurs. Your brand represents everything you are, and everything you want to be. We believe your brand should look like the company you WANT to become, not the company you are right now.

Urban Hippos under promises, over delivers and most importantly we have fun when we work.
