I’m a website developer and been playing around with some new styles recently, hence this. Basically I was thinking how I could improve your website and I came up with a feature to replace your current ‘iPhone photo’. Basically I created an iPhone from code and have put Monzo on the homepage. Overall I think this is quite modern and haven’t seen any other app company do this, so will make you stand out.
Essentially my idea is one of the following;
Have the red text state ‘Check out Monzo by clicking here’ this then opens the App store app page in which the user can download the app.
When you click the app it opens a gif of the Monzo homescreen and scrolls up and down (This would show off the features better than your current png.
When you click on the app icon it opens the app and also allows you to navigation around the app.
I’m more than willing to add this into your website completely fee and will offer it as my little ‘input’ into Monzo. I would love to hear what everyone thinks.

This is what I have been working on so far, a lot more needs doing in order for it to pass my OCD checks but you get the general feel. The iPhone will have some sort of gif scrolling through the app or something along the lines anyway. What do you think?
I meant complexity in UX. I can understand a “scrolling gif” as you put it, not an entire emulation of the app though. The gif would let you actually determine what to show the user, so you can flaunt the best features.
What triggers happy jumps of Monzo card, just happens on hover or need to be clicked? I’m assuming it’s the first option, as usually circular presses indicate mouse clicks. But what would happen on tablet device? How someone would know to tap card to get happy jumps? I’m not really criticising, just trying to understand your intent a bit more!
It does look very good. It’s clear that a lot of time and thought has gone into it.
When someone says TSB is a joke and a friend says “try Monzo… here’s a golden ticket” the vast majority of people are going to click “find out more” which will land them on the homepage. Monzo then has about 30 seconds to persuade them to embark on a possibly lifelong financial relationship or think “I don’t trust this. I’m done”.
To me it looks like the people who have designed it have absolutely nailed it and communicated exactly what Monzo is about - New technology, community, high end customer service and fun/friendship. It would take someone with a very thick tin hat on to think “I don’t trust this”, but only time will show whether it boosts the ‘pitched to converted’ ratio from already very high levels.
