The client

Sphera is a scaling green technology company that invented the world’s first carbon negative and carbon neutral aggregate concrete blocks.

The construction industry and concrete production are responsible for a considerable part of global carbon emissions. If adopted, Sphera’s technology presents major environmental opportunities.

The Approach


Initial Discovery

Upon initial discovery, we realised that since Sphera had no functioning website, setting up a new website would be the priority.

As a part of the process, we conducted industry research and in-depth brand discovery to understand Sphera’s needs, preferences, the most relevant information the website should communicate, and the best ways to frame the messaging.


Growth-driven Design & Development


Ongoing Website Expansion

Over the year following the website launch, we expanded it with additional pages that matched Sphera’s emerging needs.

We also provided Sphera with website maintenance and training, which allowed Sphera’s team do updates and minor modifications quickly and efficiently.

In the client's words

'During our work together, Adopter successfully kickstarted our online presence by designing and developing Sphera’s new website. Thanks to a Growth-Driven Design approach suggested by Matt, the process was quick, efficient and resulted in a great, aesthetic website perfectly matching our brand. After the website’s launch, Adopter further expanded it based on our needs, growing it alongside Sphera’s scaling. At the same time, the website is also set up to allow our team to make changes and modifications when necessary.'
