- Background

Despite being an early entrant in its niche, RushTera faced challenges in maintaining its competitive edge and enhancing sales post-2015.

The task ahead was not merely about updating the platform but also strategically rebranding and repositioning it in a competitive landscape.

Scoping the Redevelopment


The task was to rebuild an existing platform, ensuring it was not only up-to-date in terms of design but also functionality.

The platform had to be reimagined from scratch, incorporating modern technologies and user experience principles, while also migrating from one cloud provider to another and setting up a dedicated cloud infrastructure.

Modernizing the Interface

UI Design & Brand Identity

The UI Design phase was about more than aesthetics. While we aimed to give RushTera a modern look, we also focused on ensuring that every design element served a purpose.

The design was tailored to resonate with the platform's rich history while aligning with modern design principles.

Details of our design approach

Bringing the Design to Life

Frontend Development

For the frontend, we chose React, a powerful JavaScript library known for its efficiency and flexibility.

But our choice wasn't just about using a modern tool; it was about ensuring that every user interaction with RushTera was smooth, responsive, and delightful.

Benefits of using React

  • Dynamic User Interface.

    React allowed us to create a UI that could dynamically update, offering users real-time feedback and interaction.

  • Component-Based.

    This approach ensured efficient code reuse, streamlining development, and ensuring consistency across the platform.

  • Community Support.

    Leveraging a vast community meant that we had access to a plethora of resources, ensuring the platform was built using best practices.

Strengthening the Core

Backend Development & Infrastructure

Transitioning from PHP, we integrated Laravel, known for its robustness and scalability.

But our backend work wasn't just about coding; it involved intricate infrastructure management.

We migrated from one cloud provider to another, setting up a dedicated cloud infrastructure. The lack of documentation for some components posed a challenge, but our team reverse-engineered solutions to ensure seamless integration

    Laravel's architecture allowed us to build a system that could easily be expanded upon in the future.

Empowering Collaboration & Functionality

Collaboration & Enhanced Features

In the media management domain, collaboration is key. Recognizing this, we introduced features that would make collaboration not just possible, but efficient and intuitive.

Details of the new features

  • Media Gallery.

    A feature that allows users to showcase their work in a professional and elegant manner.

  • Media Labels.

    A customizable system enabling users to categorize and track their media files effectively.

  • Download Manager.

    Recognizing the challenges of downloading large media files, we developed a dedicated manager using Electron, ensuring users had a smooth and uninterrupted download experience.
