After seeing cards changing for multiple banks and there are some nice cards out there now (first direct).
I was wondering if there are any plans for Monzo to update the OG hot coral to something a bit more modern.
What would everyone else want to see from a new hot coral card?
I would love a more textured colour and an interesting coloured edge.
The only difference I would like to see is the option of changing card design in app, to cut down on plastic waste
Changing their core brand colour would be crazy.
The cards needs a modern refresh but not changing the colour. It’s been mentioned a lot and the US version is slightly different.
I would say that the Hot Coral colour and design at the minute is very modern.
Taking a look at First Direct, Santander, and HSBC they are all changing their cards to a standard base colour/gradient with no designs/patterns.
I think the current card makes a huge statement.
They need to move all the raised numbers (etc) to the back of the card … Then it’d be hugely more modern compared to what it is now. But I imagine there’s a backlog of cards to get through first.
If I had to get a new card from Monzo then this is what I’d like, Hot coral with card deet’s on the back.
Now that’s what I’m talking about
I don’t get the obsession with vertical cards…
The hot coral colour, sure maybe. The design, I think that looks old.
These of all sounds like changes for the sake of it, which is never a good idea for a brand or the £££ it will cost that they will never get back.
Your comment is the first one I’ve seen describing First Direct’s new card as nice. Most people seem to hate it.
I’m glad I’m not the only one! I’ve rarely seen one I prefer over a horizontal design.
I much prefer horizontal cards too.
Most people hate things that are different or change in general. I like it simplicity, accessibility features and how I don’t show my card number to everyone when I get it out to pay
I get the idea that you’re putting it in a pin terminal, and so that’s a vertical behaviour. But (imo) that’s so rare now, They’re horizontal in Apple Pay, they’re normally horizontal(ish) if contactlessing the card etc.
I don’t get the obsession with cards, but each to their own, I guess.
Very true. I don’t carry my wallet with me at all anymore, wish my barber would switch to cashless
Forgot that was still on there!
Keep the card oriented in landscape, but move the numbers to the back to match Plus and Premium. Job done.
