Confido, a fintech startup backed by Y-Combinator, approached us when they had already gained some initial market traction and had a rudimentary marketing landing page in place. Their goal was to effectively communicate their product, attract more customers and secure additional investment and were, thus, looking for our expertise to overhaul their brand along all their digital touchpoints.
For a fintech startup, it is essential to establish trust among their users. CFOs, controllers, accountants, and sales people have to be confident that their financials are accurate and that they can rely on the platform. Taking the startup name as the starting point, "confidence" was one of the cornerstones of this project. With the ultimate goal of making deduction management an integral and seamless part of running a successful CPG brand, our aim was to position Confido as a reliable, and accessible brand with an easy-to-use platform.
The logotype is based on one of the primordial graphic forms, the circle. This geometric shape effectively merges what Confido needs to communicate: simplicity in use, calmness and confidence for its users, and fidelity, hence accuracy, of financial data. At its core, the letter F takes center stage due to its distinctive form, emphasizing its fricative, vibrant pronunciation compared with the other sounds. The direct relationship between the brand name's graphic representation and its pronunciation enhances Confido's memorability and clarity, reassuring the brand identity.
We limited the color palette to two primary and one accent color to communicate straightforwardness and reliability. The black tone of Charcoal establishes trust; the earthy Philippine enhances the approachability of Confido, making it softer and human; and the accent color Deep Sky Blue stands for confidence, while also relating the startup to the finance sector. Already with the UI design in mind, we further expanded the color scale with variations of the main colors. Complementing the visual identity, this broad color spectrum can be used across different brand touchpoints.

Two sans-serif typefaces enhance the sense of an approachable, easy-to-use tech product. Cabinet Grotesk is characterized by its versatility and clean, minimalist design with sharp angles and straight lines, giving it a modern and professional appearance. For body text and link buttons, we use Manrope. Modern, clean, and versatile, the font conveys professionalism and clarity.
Photographic elements were only a minor part of this project, we focused on simplified UI designs that communicate the user benefit. The photography approach was to show inspiring workspaces that suggest comfort and a creative atmosphere through warm hues and thoughtful design.

The homepage and the product pages of the web attract the users' attention immediately with their above-the-fold sections: simplified UI screens give insight into the platform at a glance. Across the website, mouse-over and drag effects give the otherwise clean and straightforward layout the sparkle that it needs to keep users engaged. Without compromising website speed, subtle animations contribute further to a seamless yet engaging user experience. The Calendly integration of the contact page makes it easy for interested users to schedule a demo with one of Confido's experts.
