National Mortgage Company is a leader in the non bank lending and financial services sector. After a brand architecture workshop and extensive research TUSK found that the company was known for exceptional customer service, innovative products, and an authentic style of conducting business. Their image however projected an outdated and conservative personality, not the complexity and dynamic nature of the company. TUSK’s aim was to re-energise the brand by adding more emotion and charm without comprimising on the serious character of the company.
TUSK created a brand communication strategy incorporating a change in name to simply “NMC”, the brand driver
'The Banks Branch', and the creation of a unique and easily identifiable brandmark. All complimented by a strong yet approachable colour scheme.
Implementation is now in progress and includes the development of brand guidelines, corporate literature, marketing collateral, environmental graphics and a refreshed digital presence.

Positive Posters provides a shared platform that encourages designers to be proactive in shaping important issues. We believe in the ability of design to inspire minds, change attitudes and spark revolutions.
The 2011 Positive Posters brief asks you to design a poster that highlights or exposes an issue specific to your own country, someone else’s or one that is international. It could be social, environmental or political; anything that you believe deserves a global audience and could be better seen or understood.
This is an opportunity for you to make a positive contribution towards an issue by presenting it to a global audience. We don’t want to tell you what’s important; we’d like you to tell us what’s important to you.
