The client

The Economist Newspaper

A world-renowned brand since 1843.

The challenge

A ground up rebuild of a high profile web frontend

A previous attempt to replace the legacy website with a single page app had left a precarious pile of tech debt. We were faced with the decision to work through the problems or start from scratch.

Our solution

A performant Next.js app and the start of a new team

We developed and deployed a new frontend to production where it now successfully serves tens of millions of visitors a month. Alongside this we helped to improve the hiring process and recruit for a new permanent team.

orangejellyfish came into The Economist and assessed the current state of engineering and product development. In a short time, the team presented a compelling case to ground up rebuild the website, as the fastest way to get the foundations in place for a new digital product platform. Augmenting existing engineers, the team gave The Economist the room to replatform progressively feature by feature, and worked tirelessly to sunset the now legacy platform.
