I designed the company’s brand identity and its several offshoots, most notably #DONATE; the charity arm of the platform.

Getting users to sign up to a new payment platform is always going to be contentious, so it was paramount the user onboarding became as easy and stressfree as possible.
As with most startups, you end up designing everything the business requires, down to investor memoranda, presentation and dev documentation. To lighten what is essentially a financial tech product we came up with these little heart dudes, tying into the charities market which adopted #PAY first.

We’re asking a lot of the sweet people who donate through a service that is so brand new. So a lot of hard work by the team and myself has gone into removing every unnecessary step and fine tuning the rest.
Adoption of the technology has been quickest in the charity industry, due to its ease of use and the inherent social nature of the service. We created bespoke user journeys for a number of larger charities like WWF, Cancer Research UK, Marie Curie, Global Radio’s Make Some Noise and 3FM Serious Request.
