Neverbland/Workindex® — projects created by the team over the past 11 years.
(2010 – Present)
VOTD (pronounced voted) was conceived as a new way to recognise the talent in moving image content creation.
The concept is devastatingly simple: Videos are submitted by individuals, teams, editors, artists, or agencies— anyone with an award-worthy piece of content. The general public and a panel of industry judges have seven days to give each entry a mark out of ten. The winner is announced and scheduled to become Video Of The Day.
The site was an instant success quickly generating—11k visits, 7 searches, and 1.5k votes each month—we've expanded the platform to include a research facility, a playlist function and more recently, an industry jobs board.
VOTD is became recognised as one of the web’s most popular destinations to discover and watch the best in short form video.
It was acquired in 2019.
Market Invoice (now Market Finance)
MarketInvoice started life as a peer-to-peer lending provider that taps into a network of investors to buy unpaid invoices, and advance cash quickly & affordably.
Having proven initial product market fit they came to Neverbland for complete rebrand and website overhaul so as to elevate their position as a trailblazing Fintech company passionate about making the world of finance more efficient and transparent.
In Nov 2019 Market Invoice was renamed Market Finance in conjunction with the launch of a new business loans product. Fast forward three years and the business has gone from strength to strength joining the UK;s illustrious group of unicorn businesses.
We're believers in making things simple. So when we discovered the lengths creative agencies and production companies were going to in order to pitch for work, we spotted an opportunity and designed and built Slate, the simplest way to search, archive, pitch and present your work, in seconds.
Slate, a media management tool designed for simple, smart control of website content and media assets. With a centralised media library at its core it removed the need for multiple services and for copy and pasting embed codes
Its simple, beautiful interface powers everything from video to news, contact and content pages, as well as artist profiles and listings.
Slate was sold to Extreme Reach in 2017.
Altitude Music held over eight and a half thousand tracks in their database from 100s of multi-award winning composers.
Their vision was to create a simple, elegant library where clients could search, listen to and download music for ads, soundtracks and video games.
We built a fast, scalable, single page app that required no reloads, with a sticky waveform player. We also introduced shareable playlists before Spotify made them a thing.
Complimenting the front end was an easy to use CMS giving Altitude full control over their content and enabled tracks to be easily bulk uploaded and tagged.
The platform underpinned Altitude’s continued growth leading to the company’s acquisition by BMG in August 2016.
If you work in a creative industry you'll know how inefficient the process of gathering and managing feedback used to be. Our solution was to develop Conjure— a tool that allows an entire team, and third parties, to provide feedback collaboratively, efficiently, and in context of the work.
We devised a simple and robust workflow: Users upload their work and share with collaborators. Collaborators view the work and add feedback points and comments. When everyone is happy, the work can be marked as approved.
The vision was to get to market as soon as possible, so we launched with a minimum viable product that could support this core process, with a plan to develop features and functionalities iteratively as we progressed. We continued to enhance the feature set and reached a monthly average of 20,000 image views, 12,500 project views, and 3,250 feedback points added by clients including Saatchi & Saatchi, Datasift and AOL.
Conjure was acquired in 2017
We conducted a complete rebrand for this Swiss-based hosting company to reflect their national heritage and principles of security and independence.
We delivered a new brand identity, collateral design and design and build of their website.
Launched in 2018 Lendingblock was the world's first blockchain powered securities lending exchange. Neverbland worked closely with the founding team for the launch of their ICO delivering a new identity, brand guidelines, marketing website and platform UX that reflected their vision. The ICO reached its $5m target.
Graphics Springs enables non-designers and technicians to create fully custom, high quality brand identities in minutes all at low cost using their easy to use creator tool. The original beta product was suffering from a number of technical issues causing bugs and hampering its potential for growth.
Neverbland rebuilt the tool from the ground up and 6 years later it's still in the same incarnation having helped many thousands of customers create unique brands.
Founded by Tom Cledwyn and Tim Pits the Kickr platform enabled brands and celebrities to donate a ‘money can’t buy’ experiences to a charity of their choice. Users then entered to win the experience by pledging money to the charity. As a ‘Kickr’, users receive perks such as signed t-shirts for donating. Plus, the more you pledge, the better the perk with ‘Kickstarter style’ crowd engagement functionality.
Kickr launched in 2016 featuring high profile endorsement from Rio Ferdinand and the then Mayor of London Boris Johnson but sadly failed to reach its potential and the business was dissolved in 2018.
