Neverbland dev team sign up for Everest Basecamp | NEVERBLAND®

Bristol to Base Camp (BTBC) is a campaign organised by the Bristol-based Charity PHASE Worldwide, and two of our team are embarking on this amazing journey for this unique cause.

PHASE, which stands for Practical Help Achieving Self-Empowerment, was founded in 2005. They have raised millions of pounds in aid of women and children in remote Nepalese regions, empowering them with the knowledge and skills to unlock a better quality of life.

The Bristol to Base Camp campaign does exactly what it s

Bristol to Base Camp: the countdown continues | NEVERBLAND®

As we eagerly await the kick-off of the highly anticipated PHASE Base Camp expedition, Ryan and Alex have been keeping themselves rather busy. Here’s what the boys have been up to recently.

Last week saw Ryan and Alex meet the rest of their expedition crew and take on a weekend adventure. The boys braved the elements to hike the magnificent Pen y Fan alongside their six teammates. This Welsh wonder of the Britsh Isles is the highest peak in south Wales, standing at a mighty 2900ft. This mini-hi

My first year in tech | NEVERBLAND®

Last week, I was curled up on the sofa one evening, when my phone began to vibrate vigorously. Buzz. Buzz. And buzz again. Odd, I thought.

I turned my phone over and examined the screen, expecting a stream of ranting texts from a friend or perhaps a sequence of spam emails. My face was illuminated by equal parts LED and horror as the notification glared back at me:

Oh, God. A whole year has passed since I started working at Neverbland. A year of my life blinked past me in an instant. A whole y

What can we do about gender bias in the tech industry? | NEVERBLAND®

Despite several initiatives set up to boost female participation in fields like coding and computer science, only 26% of the tech workforce is made up of women. That's right, a five-trillion-dollar industry that continues to be made up of predominantly men.

But things are changing. Our industry is more actively seeking female employees than ever before, as demonstrated by the recent partnerships formed between huge companies and organisations like Code First Girls. It’s a great first step, but

The Great British Shake-off | NEVERBLAND®

After building a website for our friends at Moth our eyes were opened to the possibilities of canned cocktails, but is the canned version better than the DIY? We did a very official experiment to put them to the test.

Moth, standing for ‘mix of total happiness’, is a brand of canned cocktails that packs premium mixology into a portable can at an affordable price. Canned cocktails are so in right now, and Moth has created an elevated product to take your at-home cocktail experience to another le

Mind Over Mountains: how a walk change my outlook on life

I had been with Neverbland for a little over six months when I first heard about the annual mindfulness walk. The concept of a mindfulness walk was new to me. I’ve only ever walked with purpose – like walking the dog, walking to the shops, walking to reach a distance goal, walking to achieve something. But walking to promote mindfulness? I’ve got to admit that I was a tad sceptical.

How canned cocktails shook up the beverage industry

No one does sunshine quite like the Brits. Shirtless football hooligans, sticky humidity without a breath of air conditioning, and frankly far too many uncovered toes for my liking. But love it or loathe it, most of us will agree that the best thing the Brits do in Summertime is indulging in a refreshing beverage. Sure – an ice-cold lemonade will hit to spot, or a fruity Pimms, or even a cold crisp larger, but you know what would be even better?

A cheeky cocktail.

To Chill or Not to Chill: Getting the CBD Balance Right

CBD drinks are so hot right now.

I’m not mad about it.

CBD is a great way to unwind and quieten your mind and feel good without any of the side effects. It’s like smoking the devil's lettuce without that THC high that makes you devour an entire pack of Oreos, or questioning whether that van parked outside your house is an MI6 surveillance van, or just your local tradesman. These drinks can ease anxiety, improve sleep and relieve aches and pains.

CBD drinks are part of the ‘health hedonism’ tr

The Creative Revolution

When we think of revolutions, you’re probably thinking of redcoats with muskets, french guillotines or Oliver twist-esque factories. But revolutions aren’t just a thing of the past.

Humans will continue to evolve and create new revolutions. Now, we are about to enter a new age, one that priorities and values creativity above all else. But to understand where we’re going, we’ve got to know where we’ve been.

The industrial revolution refers to one of the most monumental historical shifts in ou

Function Over Form: Drinks that make you feel

Gone are the days of buying a product for the advertised accompanying lifestyle. Nowadays, people are buying based on the fulfilment of their core needs. Consumers are looking to buy products that will positively impact their life, and not just dress it in a cute accessory. Brands need more than aesthetic packaging and a tasty product, it needs to deliver on the promise of an improved existence upon consumption.

Functional beverages are a type of drink marketed to highlight specific ingredients
