NIFT is already a well-established name in the financial industry of Pakistan, so the branding strategy had to be a blend of experience and an avant-garde design approach. First thing first, let’s discuss on what are the attributes we want to be related to NIFT ePay; we could have said experts of the field, trusted by the masses, but NIFT was keen to focus on “Solution-oriented” thus suggested solutions beyond payments.
The branding identities and visual language had to communicate that NIFT ePay is a human-centric, solution-oriented, and comfort-offering brand. The fintech industry is comparatively new and growing, so NIFT ePay has the advantage of being among the early birds, which we plan to exploit.
“We are very intended on how we communicate through our visual representation, from the selection of colors to fonts all must have a reason for selection”
11thAgency is determined to offer objective-based branding solutions; our selection criteria are not just being eye-catchy but purpose-driven creatives.
Color red show strength and grabs attention which helps us in social media marketing; Montserrat I a versatile font that can be used from website to print banners, and it’s easily readable.
Heavy on design and concept-based visual representation is what we are always coveting; at the same time, it must be easy on the eyes; brands that opted for easy-to-memorize logo designs have left a mark on the audience, be it Amazon or Nike, simplicity is what they stand on with concept.
Out of the logotypes, we picked the letter mark logo, “Lately it seems like we are pegged, to pick the letter or wordmark logos, but it’s ok they fit the modern era requirements”. We chose to play around with the letter “E” and tried different variations until we got the nod on the tick style. Tick is the symbol of rightfulness, so we say opting for NIFT ePay, is the right choice.
