Credit Union Brand Reinvention
Max Credit Union identified the need to update the credit unions overarching brand to express its mission well into the future and have a more profound representation of its client base. The only limit to the brand reinvention was to leave the current brand mark in place and untouched.
A research deep-dive was conducted to understand the surrounding communities and reveal critical insights about the community's uniqueness. An insight that repeatedly identified itself was a high percentage of multi-generational and diverse households in the larger metropolitan area—many with first-time family members in local universities. This valuable information highly influenced the new brand direction and tagline of "Smart Money. Made Simple."
