Very few banking licences are granted each year and I was lucky enough to work on one of the UK’s most recent additions.

Bank North are launching the UK’s first truly regional bank of the modern era.

Aimed at the SME market, Bank North offers tailored  finance solutions far more quickly than any of their competitors. I created the visual identity which they took to market in October 2021.

The balance of the logo aligns perfectly on the upward arrow—thanks to a successful trade mark application.

The arrow does more than purely illustrate the map/compass origin; in a sea of competitors, it literally points towards this new bank as a cut above the rest.

The logo can also be reduced to a shorthand motif, using only the ‘N’ and the arrow.
