N26 Smart Tier
N26 Smart is a premium membership bank account that comes with a colourful debit card and intelligent money management tools. With the creation of this new tier, setting it apart visually from the existing tiers was essential. Our creative team represented the ability to spend and save with confidence using carefully selected typeface and imagery.

Month of M Social Campaign
We turned the November 2021 into the Month of N, unveiling a new N-themed activation every day across our European social, content, and CRM channels. Over 26 days, we celebrated November birthdays, crowdsourced the ultimate Nineties playlist, created an augmented reality N26 necklace, launched our own Not Naked capsule collection, and gave away loads of nice prizes, including an all-expenses-paid trip to any place on earth starting with the letter N. The campaign exceeded all of our objectives and trended on Twitter twice.

Lara Cardoso specializes in social media strategy, community management, and content creation for conscientious lifestyle brands. The hand-lettered logo is inspired by organic shapes and links her initials. The abstract pattern started out as a watercolour painting which was then digitized and adapted to complement the logo. While working closely with Lara, we ensured that the branding is elegant, versatile, and highly personalized.

N26 Standard Tier
N26’s region-specific ‘Standard’ tier packaging stating ‘Welcome’ no longer worked for long-standing customers receiving replacement cards. While keeping the original format, the new strategic design and copy allows it to be used in all markets. This dramatically reduced waste and logistical errors when ordering and fulfilling the cards. Additionally, we reduced the amount of ink used and selected a more responsibly sourced paper. A QR code created an opportunity to better explain card activation and allows for marketing opportunities.

N26 Virtual Cards Product Launch
For the launch of the new Virtual cards feature, we created assets that showcase the added control that having a separate physical and digital card allows.

N26 France Summer Campaign
The N26 France team wanted to create a social campaign celebrating summer and all of its perks. Through images, type, colour selection, and motion, we were able to create enthusiastic and optimistic assets.

From conception to completion, Antidote was completed as part of my undergraduate capstone project. Antidote is a Canadian zine that focuses on the conscious consumerism of fashion. It aims to raise awareness and educate consumers on the impacts of their garments on the purchasing, post-purchasing, and disposal level.
