N26 is a mobile Bank with a clean aesthetic and sharp visual identity. In early 2020 they reached out to create three small videos representing the next concepts: Peace of mind, Travel and Partners Access. Highlighting the three Metal products available at the moment: Slates, Quartz Rose and Charcoal.
During the lockdown in Spain, I had the pleasure to work on many projects in a situation we weren’t used to. Fortunately, this project turned into an exceptional experience as one of the funniest and calmest processes we have done. And this is shown in the result of these pieces we feel proud to share. Below, you´ll find a collection of images taken from the Design process and the main Hero piece.
