Umbrage delivers cutting-edge software solutions by leveraging advanced trends and designs in technology. We are not a consultancy nor a design agency; we are artisans in designing and developing software solutions for our clients. Our focus is crafting state of the art digital products with impeccable design coupled with source code engineering. 
Open communication is the foundation of our culture.  We share ideas freely and understand that our cumulative experience and continued development nurtures excellence in our software solutions.

An apprentice designer is someone looking to continue to grow within their craft. This is typically someone who has recently completed a UI/UX boot camp and/or is fresh out of college with a design degree focused on the digital space.
