How We Deliver.

Umbrage is a crafts-based studio focused on designing, developing and delivering. We are the product of many combined years in the enterprise software business with a new take on empowering products with AI technology. At our core, Umbrage delivers AI empowered software, but more than that, we’re cultivating culture within our client’s organizations.

01

Crafts, Not Titles

Equal respect for both our individual and collective crafts and an equal voice at the table — all our energy and focus goes exactly where it should: Your Product.

02

Share Freely, Share Often

Sharing best practices and methods throughout the entire process, we teach your internal development team the kind of product-minded thinking they need to keep iterating and optimizing.

03

A Candid Partnership

We approach your business and the work as your strategic partner to build and adjust for the best and most efficient results. We owe it to each other to speak up and solve problems together.

04

With Clear Eyes & Full Hearts

We leave past biases and canned solutions at the door. Umbrage gives every new project the fresh eyes and care it deserves.

05

Diligence Before Development

From foundational definition and design exploration to "development ready" user stories and acceptance criteria, successful product development is much more than writing code.
