Neverbland/Workindex® — projects created by the team over the past 11 years.
(2010 – Present)
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.
The Technology Playmaker Awards were announced in 2017 by Booking.com to celebrate and recognise women who have disrupted or are transforming businesses, industries, and communities through the use of technology.
Booking.com needed a platform to raise awareness of the new awards programme and to facilitate the process of receiving nominations from the public, shortlisting finalists and managing votes from the judge panel.
Working with Ketchum – Booking.coms partner for the awards – we established the user experience for the site that would communicate the proposition and allow anyone to submit nominations for each of the 10 award categories.
We integrated GraphCMS to empower the Ketchum team to manage the categories, judges, key speakers, finalists, and winners throughout the course of the award cycle. For the second year, we handed more control over to the Ketchum team by allowing them to open and close nominations, release the shortlisted finalists, and announce winners all via the CMS.
To meet strict data protection regulations required by Booking.com, we set up a secure server to host all nomination data – putting it all behind a hardware firewall, and making sure that everything was encrypted at rest.
Separately, we built a judge panel where administrators could upload shortlisted finalists for judges to review and consider before submitting their votes securely.
The second Technology Playmaker Awards ceremony took place in Central London on 13 March 2019 and was a great success. Sadly the 2020 awards we impacted by the Covid pandemic so were unable to be held in public.
In 2015 Carv successfully created the world's first wearable technology dedicated to skiers.
Using thin custom-built pressure sensors placed in the boots of skiers, they are able to analyse the finest details of the skier's movements and weight distribution. We partnered with Jamie & Pruth to deliver a polished data driven ski companion app UX & design together.
Working to tight deadline prior to their KickStarter campaign, we delivered an interactive clickable prototype that simulated the digital / physical app integration which helped them smash their fundraising target.
Fast forward to 2022 and Carv has raised over $5m to help it become the world's pre-eminent digital ski coach.
Datasift is a world leader in human created data. Their platform connects to a real-time feed of human data, uncovering insights via their sophisticated data augmentation, filtering, and classification engines.
Prior to Datasift’s acquisition by Meltwater, NEVERBLAND worked on numerous classified design and development projects associated with Filtering (CDSL), Classification (VEDO), and Indexing (PYLON).
The Datasift engine, at the time, had the ability to analyse the entirety of Facebook’s topic data, (anonymised and aggregated of course) in real time via their API. The potential for this was huge, but limited in that all queries had to be carried out internally via custom scripts written by their engineers.
Datasift wanted the power to be in the hands of its customers, so briefed NEVERBLAND to create an intuitive visualisation engine enabling customers to explore a range of data-sets in real time. The challenge was significant given the sheer number of variables and potential for cross referenced queries. Our solution allowed users to easily pick from a range of relevant fields – from demographics and interest areas, to sentiment and engagement – and refine queries or even hand edit the CSDL. Results were then generated in the form of graphs which could then be resized and arranged as appropriate.
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.
We worked closely with the founders to build the launch product for this market leading all-in-one solution for nursery management.
The Blossom Educational app empowers nursery staff teams, brings parents closer and lets you focus on growing your childcare business. It has gone on to win a host of awards for early years educational excellence.
