The client

Riverlane builds ground-breaking software to unleash the power of quantum computers. Backed by leading venture-capital funds and the University of Cambridge, they develop software that transforms quantum computers from experimental technology into commercial products.

The challenge

Develop a new website to strengthen brand awareness, deliver a high-quality user experience, whilst telling the story of Riverlane and demonstrating the commercial impact of their research. Both brand and website to be developed at the same time within a 5 month timeframe.

Collaboration

It was crucial for the success of the project to work closely with members of the Riverlane team. Especially with the subject being, shall we say, rather complex. 

They helped us to understand the complexities of what they do and how transformational it will be, enabling us to deliver the best product we could.

User experience

Our extensive research helped us to understand their user's needs, abilities, values and limitations. Meaning we were able to develop user journeys and wireframes that create the perfect high-quality user experience required.

Digital brand

Using the new brand developed by Together, we worked closely to develop the digital brand. This included everything from hover states, button styles, typography, grid and layout.

Using microinteractions, we developed subtle transitions and movements across the site, helping to establish Riverlane as a progressive, innovative organisation.

Objectives

Attracting new team members and appealing to investors were the main objectives for the site.

Our extensive research into the needs of venture capitalists allowed us to define the correct content and structure to create a user experience that would appeal directly to them.

We also created an engaging ‘working here’ page to help grow the team, showcasing the benefits of working at Riverlane, their values, culture and interview process.

CMS

The robust WordPress content management system is responsible for three things: storing content, editing content and publishing content.

It has allowed Riverlane to:
Update and manage the live site with no guided help
Respond to consumer requirements quickly, easily and beautifully
