Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Talk Loans (https://www.talkloans.co.uk/) is a guarantor loan broker, specialising in offering loans between £500 and £15,000 to those who have been turned down by more traditional lenders such a bank. If the borrower is unable to make a payment on their loan, we ask the guarantor to step in and pay to keep the payments up to date. The guarantor can be either a homeowner or a tenant and are usually family members but can also be close friends and colleagues.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Our current website, talkloans.co.uk, has characterisation in the form of two pound coin ‘friends’ which represent the fact that we lend money and that you need a guarantor in order to qualify for a loan from us. On the site, they’re clearly close and supportive, emphasising the relationship between the borrower and the guarantor. We’d like to see some new designs which keep the same core idea, but move away from photo realistic coins. Drawn coins or notes would be acceptable however we are open to new ideas which are completely removed from the money theme. We would like the new characters to: • Be instantly recognisable and unique; • Be modern; • Be usable within our logo which would include the words “UK Credit”; • Stand out on the page; • Be indicative of the guarantor/borrower relationship; • Be engaging/friendly/warm; • Be distinct from one another; • Separate us from competitor branding (one uses plasticine people and another uses dinosaurs). • Be adaptable. • Be scaleable and identifiable within restrictive dimensions (for example 95px x 60px)
Please avoid the following: • Superhero’s • Corporate imagery • Photo realism
