A new look-and-feel for Moneybird

A successful product is not only driven by marketing. Design is important as well. After a few years the design started to feel dated, and didn't represent the essence of the expanding company. We held several brainstorm sessions in which we determined what identity suits the 'new' Moneybird.

We determined important core values that were used in the branding: smart, innovative, reliable, simple but better, open and accessible emerged. These core values are reflected in the logo and colors.
