NEW CORPORATE IDENTITY AND WEBSITE FOR BERLIN-FINTECH UPVEST
- Making investing as easy as spending money -
Berlin-based fintech Upvest has launched its new corporate identity and website design.
Upvest empowers its B2B finance clients to provide their end customers with any type of investment product. The fintech has developed an Investment-API that can be easily connected to existing backends enabling businesses to build great investment experiences for their end-users – seamless, secure and across international borders.
With a more inclusive investment API approach, encompassing both traditional securities and crypto, Upvest needed a new and distinctive corporate identity to reflect its unique positioning, so the marketing team approached Design by Structure (Structure) with a brief.
Reflecting Upvest’s DNA
Working with the concept of disrupting and democratising the investment category, a strong proposition was leveraged from the strategic insights – One API. Any investment experience.
This is supported with a succinct and clear TOV and messaging strategy, avoiding industry jargon to ensure clients understand how the investment API will benefit their business.
The colour palette has a defined usage hierarchy, with key colours used purposefully across all comms. Key to the creative is the graphic assets inspired by the Upvest universe, illustrated with a graphic (a transparent circle) – a visual metaphor that represents the idea of a complete solution with endless possibilities. The transparency reflects Upvest’s clear and transparent approach to business.
The circle was abstracted to create four icons that act as product identifiers – savings plan, portfolio, roundup and fractional – each with its own colour assignment.
Structure also developed a portfolio of icons for other comms applications to help with website navigation. Imagery and video play an important part of the new website content, introducing both the product functionality and the ‘Upvengers’ (team members) who bring the business and product portfolio to life.
Speaking about the project, Olga Knyazkova, Product Marketing Manager, Upvest said, “The goal was clear, we wanted to create a new corporate identity and website design that strongly reflects our core brand proposition: making investing as easy as spending money. Structure supported us with their in-depth expertise and hands-on mentality throughout the entire process to really come up with a new distinctive corporate identity. The new design approach is also a perfect expression that we are now ready to enter the next chapter of Upvest’s ambitious future plans.”
John Galpin Co-Founder, Design by Structure said, “Upvest was an exciting brief to work on. The Upvest team had a clear purpose - to make investing as easy as spending money and democratise access to all kinds of investment products. The brand and website were designed to make it clear how Upvest enables its customers to build any investment experience they can imagine with all of the complexity taken care of. We look forward to seeing the growth of investment experiences powered by Upvest’s API"
