Pindrop designed by Nudge

Logotype designed by Nudge for bank and financial institution regulation resource Pindrop

Pindrop is a curated on-line resource created by retired banker William Ginn that provides links to external sources of information on bank and financial institution regulation, compliance and governance. Designed by Nudge, Pindrop’s new visual identity, built around a logo-type, grey and white duplex substrates, red foil detail and a responsive website, delivers both an expected corporate professionalism and functionality alongside subtle, proprietary detail.

Although the logotype favours a familiar well-spaced sans-serif efficiency, the characters slight change in weight, a sentence rather than uppercase format, small cuts through the P’s and curves across some of the corners, lend it an accessibility rather than the typical near-neutrality often favoured by this sector. The full stop that follows is given clear communicative significance through a neat red foil treatment across the stationery which is described by Nudge as representing “finality in a confident yet understated manner”. Its pin-like duality ties in well with the taking and arranging of short notes and is expanded on through the post it note-like square border of the monogram and the use of grey boxes across a type heavy but well structured website.

Support BP&O



Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
