WHO WE ARE

Buzzbar is the UK’s first walk-in media and marketing shop, dedicated to providing high-quality creative services at affordable rates. Our highly-skilled specialists deliver website design, marketing strategy, graphic design, copywriting, video production and more to inject some creativity into our clients marketing needs. We believe in a more personal approach; our unique side-by-side model allows our specialists to work tactically and transparently, with clients, not for them.

Value and accessibility is at the heart of everything we do, so we’ve done away with the outdated retainer model and implemented a pay-by-the-hour structure that guarantees our clients pay only for the work they need. Buzzbar are here to boost brand identities and help businesses to grow. We’re proud of our diverse team, unique workflow, and transparent approach to what we do, catering for every shape and size of entrepreneur, artist, and business.
