Helping an Australian start-up revolutionise global education

"Everyone is loving it - they keep talking about how easy it is to use and how much time it saves."


Helping an Australian start-up reach its potential, and evolve into a global leader in education space. Our combined goal was to create a high-impact professional learning application that utilises practical strategies delivered in direct response to instructional practice, student engagement, learning outcomes and teacher reflections.

Verso has pivoted from classroom collaboration to contemporary professional learning community. The bigger picture for the platform was to increase adoption in key markets the United States and Australia before branching out globally.


The aim is to provide a platform that both assists educators and improves student retention and engagement, enabling teachers to apply high impact teaching strategies and connect teachers through a professional learning network.

Through extensive engagement with the target audience, we created an application that meets every user’s need. By conducting multiple interviews, workshops and brainstorming sessions we ensured with absolute certainty the direction and outcome was accurate.


Working side-by-side with Verso for more than two years, enabled us to become more than a partner, we were considered an extension of Verso’s internal team.

By focusing on User Experience we were able to analyse and break down the methodology ingrained in the relationship between applied linguistics and language pedagogy delivered a considered product, with a positive impact. A collaborative development and on-going partnership gave us unique insights into the everyday classroom. From those insights, we produced a tool that’s proven to be what was required to help expand the platform into the global education space. 

Verso now provides 40,000 teachers, 12,000 schools in more than 100 countries a platform to assist in teaching and to educate the next generation.

A carbon neutral studio

Carter's fine folk sit at recycled timber desks, type on keyboards powered by rechargeable batteries, walk on carpet made from recycled tyres and plastic bags. They breathe air created by an in-office garden and drink tea heated by an environmentally-friendly kettle. These ‘Digital HTTPsters’ hold meetings within a den of recycled paper accordion walls that weave throughout the studio.

When it’s time to leave, the crew grab their bags from upcycled lockers that once lived at a nearby AFL Club. They flick the switch on low-energy lights powered by 100% carbon-offset energy. Journeying home, they walk, ride and catch public transport.

Principal, James Noble, hand-crafted the furniture from recycled timber, layered and sealed using biodegradable glue. Now that’s commitment.
