Project Overview

A platform of financial trust

The D&AD brief written by Barclays challenged us to develop a digital experience that can help Barclays meet the banking needs of neurodivergent individuals.

Problem

Neurodiverse individuals often struggle with many symptoms that can make it challenging to manage their finances.

Solution

Create a platform where neurodiverse individuals can to better meet their financial goals.

Empathy Interviews
Uncovering unacknowledged needs
Feature 1
A Helping Hand

A Mate could be a family member, a friend, or someone you can trust to be part of your financial journey to help you manage money easier and increase your money confidence.

Feature 2
Dual saver

Shared goals will make users contribute together and motivate one another. They can achieve their saving goals without noticing – and they'll be on vacation before they know it.

Beyond the Mobile App
An All-Around Experience

BankMate's features extend to common banking tasks like depositing checks or cash using an ATM.

Reflections
I was unfamiliar with designing for fintech and neurodiversity. However, upon completing this project I gained a deeper understanding of the immense impact that intuitive features and technology can have on improving the lives of individuals.
