Monzo investor card - design concept (By Brice Corbin)

No it wouldn’t, those are different teams. From my experience as a dev, you generally want to keep devs as far away from any form of design as you can :joy:

But the design team surely aren’t sitting around twiddling their thumbs because they have nothing better to do…

Yh, that’s true, and occurred to me too after I’d woken up and sobered up a little.

Although, I still feel like other work wouldn’t be majorly impacted by designing a new card. You could give 1 designer a day or two to put some concepts together, which wouldn’t have too big of an impact on anything else.

Where I currently work, we have “innovation time” once per fortnight, where you work on little personal projects that could go towards improving the business. I assume that Monzo may have something similar, and if they do, this could be done as someones project in that.

They do (or did) indeed have “Monzo Time”. I’d forgotten all about this, so who knows, maybe something will pop up one day. :+1:t3:

Hi thank you for you’re response.

I don’t think it would necessarily take much time or resources to come up with a concept such as this.

Monzo already benefit by the fact that they have such active supporters that provide design concepts for them already which they can choose to take aspects from.

But yes, in the mean time. This should not be a priority for the firm. Just a good way to promote and advertise the brand.

Any new opinions on the Monzo Investor card design?

I like it, but again it’s not got the :monzo: flair.

Monzo is taking over the fintech universe with their hot coral ads and card designs. It’s difficult to miss, and always a pleasure to look at. I don’t see them changing it anytime soon, and if they did I don’t see them using anything other than hot coral, dark blue and colours within their logo.

Too much time and effort including design, community opinions, MasterCard approval, cost, production, distribution would go into changing their card design, with little gain. They did it in the past, but mostly for operational reasons such as “Mondo” > “Monzo” and updating the MasterCard logo.

I personally think cards are fine as they are. Current account cards are hot coral. Investor cards have ‘investor’, and I imagine business cards having ‘business’ on them.

It’s a simplistic design that works, no need to over-complicate things for purely aesthetic gain :grin:

I like it.
However I’m happy to keep my existing monzo until it runs out.
We don’t need any more plastic waste.

Yes I think you have a valid point. Do you not think it would benefit Monzo on a publicity perspective?

Personally I think there are alternatives.
I mean no one sees my card apart from me so unsure how a new card in my purse would market the product. I joined due to word of mouth.
As I said Its great concept but id be dissapointed if i had a new card prior to my current cards expiry date. I feel its a bit of a waste.

You’ll get an Investor card next time your card is replaced. You won’t get one earlier unless you specifically request one.

That makes perfect sense. :blush:

I think moving away from the current hot coral, and the recognition it is gaining, would harm, not help, publicity. A lot easier for non monzo people to only have one thing to associate with the brand than two at this point.

Yes , that is very true.
