Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union
one more reason people are banking and borrowing here
Over the course of 20 years, Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union (HVFCU) had grown into a $4.7-billion financial institution in Upstate New York; their brand identity, however, remained the same. The research-driven rebranding strategy we developed helped to change all that, giving consumers and businesses a reason to take a closer look at—and switch to—HVFCU. And switch they did: The credit union posted annual deposit and loan increases that consistently beat industry averages throughout the campaign’s multi-year run.
Standing out against some stiff competition
Modern yet warm, friendly, and distinctly community-focused, the HVFCU brand distinguished the credit union from their “big bank” competitors, and clearly communicates who they are—and who they serve.
The Valley icon is integral to all HVFCU-branded communications, from paid media placements to annual reports and collateral.

This new series takes the creative from “to life” to “real life,” incorporating the reasons real members bank or borrow with HVFCU in an innovative take on the tried-and-true testimonials.
