I redesigned the Monzo Debit Card! What are your thoughts?

Having your face on your debit card would cut down fraud as they would have to be mandatory and then retailers can’t just accept anyone using the card though interesting to think your face can cut down fraud just like your passport can it’s not fool proof and no one can say it will happen an interesting idea I though might be a way forward against financial crime and Identity theft

They used to have photos about 15 years ago on credit cards (Lloyd’s tsb for one) I always thought it was a good idea. Don’t know why it didn’t take off ?


Daily! :flashlight:


Thought I’d give the card design a go.

Whilst not a designer but a marketer I think the hot coral has to stay just like Monzo say. I love everything black and would jump at having an all black card, however this is Monzo’s brand.

The design isn’t anything ground breaking, it’s more of an update of the current version. Trying to achieve the hot coral is a guessing game as Monzo don’t have any official brand guidelines. Also as nice as a white MasterCard logo would be it’s not possible based on their guidelines.

I also stuck with the horizontal version as I don’t think the vertical version adds any value apart from looking different and more like a hotel key card. Plus I have a card holder as my wallet, so “monzo” sticks out nicely and is 1. a good conversation starter and 2. easy way for me to find which card I need.

Personally I think the Monzo :monzo: should be on the card to help enforce the brand more. And should be changed similar to the app depending on what status/account you have.

But yeah, here is the design and my thoughts.

I’d love to see monzo move on from the embossed letters and ugly design imposed by them.


Agreed, very dated look as well and no longer needed. Being a challenger bank like Monzo I thought unembossed (sp) cards would’ve been a given


Agree re embossed letters. I find the colour always rubs off them and they look tatty.
