- Hello Monday Team
Virgin Hyperloop is set to revolutionize the future of transportation. We worked to design a future-facing and scalable website that tells their brand story and educates users about their groundbreaking technology. One of our core objectives was to show that the hyperloop is more than an abstract idea or futuristic concept. We wanted to give users a real look at VH’s engineering feats and progress in major markets around the world.
Virgin Hyperloop is being developed at a rapid pace — and they're at the forefront of creating a brand-new method of transportation. Showcasing specific features of the technology helps users understand its relevance and impact. So on the homepage we felt it was important to show engaging and interactive visuals of the hyperloop while other aspects of the website required a more traditional, modular approach.
We built the site with our own custom vanilla js framework that functions as a single-page application. And we're using the ThreeJS library for our 3D. For our CMS we’ve chosen for Contentful and Symfony as our PHP framework. The rendering of our HTML is done with Twig. And as a host we have gone for our preferred option which is Heroku and having StackPath as the CDN.
We were really happy with the final product, especially the 3D story that frames up the hyperloop technology and the interactive map that gives users an overview of VH's global presence and initiatives. It feels branded and unique while remaining flexible and scalable enough to evolve with the company in the future.
