Financial Services Design

Financial services design and marketing for an International Bank

Our client is a leading International Bank offering financial services across the African and worldwide markets.

They reached out to Halo to assist with the implementation of their bold new brand across their range of materials and ultimately increase their marketing footprint.

Due to confidentiality restrictions, the client name, imagery and information have been redacted and changed to "International Bank". This case study reflects the nature of our services, but not their actual work.

The Corporate and Investment Banking unit of International Bank reached out to us in 2018.

They knew we had experience working with large global brands so we'd be able to work within their comprehensive corporate guidelines.

International Bank had recently rebranded with a dynamic and responsive brand, and with this rebrand, they needed to level up their marketing and sales material.

This introduced us to the world of financial services products and we got stuck into wrapping our heads around Index Solutions; Structured products; ETFs and ETNs, etc.

Online and offline interactivity allows varying user experiences. We've designed and developed a non-transactional website for them, allowing them to self-host according to their security preferences. This included the UI design, in addition to the programming and development.

Financial Services Education

International Bank knows that as a market leader, its marketplace needs education and engagement. We work with their team to create, narrate and produce regular training videos.

We've also developed a full end-to-end LMS system, working with a finance professor to write the content, which was then filmed and developed into an interactive online LMS experience.
