“I’ll recommend Eric any chance I get to business-minded people that want to advance with confident thoughtful, smart technology choices. He is professional, personable and easy to work with especially considering he is insanely creative and technically savvy. This balance is a huge asset to navigate successful completion of any project. I was very pleased when he presented his Branding Strategy to me and immediately signed up for his Branding Services. When he showed me his concepts, strategy, and approach, I knew I made the best choice in hiring him. I recommend him to any fintech firm. He handles any challenge with expertise and confidence and I look forward to growing my brand with him leading the way. If you want to hire him, don’t question it, just do it.”
To create a new Brand ID and Brand Strategy for a financial payment industry company.
My approach is a bit of playful design with a literal take on the credit card and balanced with a business familiarity. Things like the chip, the magnetic stripe on the back, and the placement of text and numbers on the front.
I’ve actually wanted to do this with my own business cards years ago, but it didn’t work because it would have implied that I am in that industry, So I was thrilled to apply this concept here.
I wanted to keep this logo relevant and opted for a custom chip icon. I designed a combination of chip circuitry, a personal thumbprint, and a face profile. The triangled background simulates the reflective surface of credit cards and the magnetic strip on the back of the card completes the concept.
The cards have served their purpose so successfully, we needed to order more. I added the tagline to the back as a “signature”.
Of course, the branding included a website. We also implemented some drip lead generation techniques to build the client database.
