Brio Direct

build an online bank, and deposit balances in new markets

overview

Longtime client Sterling National Bank built its BrioDirect online bank platform to drive in deposit balances from outside of the community bank’s New York catchment area. With no brand presence in those markets—and a growing number of online bank competitors with deeper pockets—Sterling needed an identity for BrioDirect that would stand out from the pack, and a solid marketing strategy to drive in deposits. AW delivered both.

Brand Identity

Make no mistake: This isn’t your grandfather’s bank.

Brio means vigor, vivacity, verve. The brand identity we created for BrioDirect captures that essence with bright colors, innovative fonts and cool iconography that are lively and engaging—yet complement the Sterling identity that often remains part of the brand signature.
