Branding

Logo

Initial You First Finance Logo Concept - You First Finance

The initial logo concepts for You First Finance, developed by a freelancer on Fiverr, needed more consistent font usage and overall design style. Two variations were presented, both of which suffered from excessive complexity and a high level of detail.

Modern Logo Design Principles

Modern logo design philosophy emphasises simplicity for optimal brand recognition and memorability. A successful logo should be responsive and scalable, maintaining its effectiveness across diverse applications, from small icons to large banners. Complex designs often lose definition when scaled down, while intricate graphic elements can compromise legibility.

Colour Adaptability and Usability

A well-designed logo should utilise adaptable colour palettes that function effectively on various backgrounds. This is crucial for partnered website promotions and marketing materials, including diverse banners and graphic elements. Unfortunately, the initial Fiverr logo designs lacked this colour versatility and needed to be optimised for vertical layouts or use in small-format squares.

Our Approach

Website Design and Branding

Rubix Studios embraced a collaborative approach to You First Finance’s design and content creation. This involved an initial phase of competitive analysis, where we examined loan broker websites in key Australian markets like Melbourne and Sydney. This research aimed to identify established design elements and gather inspiration to inform unique design solutions tailored to You First Finance’s brand identity.

Leveraging our design expertise, Rubix Studios sought to elevate the standard aesthetic of broker websites. We incorporated modern design elements while ensuring they remained distinct and aligned with Rubix Studios’ established design language.

Brand Colours

Informed by the initial logo concepts, Rubix Studios proposed a range of four color variations for integration into You First Finance’s brand identity.

Marketing

The marketing strategy initially proposed a two-pronged approach, combining Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) with Google Ads. SEO was prioritised as the first step, followed by the implementation of Google Ads.

  • Increasing organic website traffic: Improved SEO ranking will attract potential clients already searching for loan and mortgage brokers.
  • Targeting qualified leads: Google Ads allows for precise targeting based on demographics, location and search intent, ensuring advertising reaches users actively looking for financial products and brokerage services.

Social media platforms were pre-registered to secure consistent handles across all channels, ensuring brand consistency in future marketing efforts.

Rubix Studios crafted the You First Finance logo focusing on simplicity, readability, memorability and versatility. The design takes a minimalist approach, utilising clean lines and stylised lettering for a modern aesthetic. Bold letters ensure readability at various sizes, while complementary fonts enhance the overall look. Consistent spacing, lines and directions contribute to a balanced and professional logo. A refreshing and professional colour palette reflects You First Finance’s brand identity. The emblem incorporates a stylised “Y” and “F” within the icon, creating a unique and memorable visual element. Furthermore, the design is adaptable to horizontal and vertical layouts, and the icon, when isolated, effectively represents You First Finance.

Rubix Studios had developed You First Finance’s website with extreme care and consideration, going above and beyond the initial scope to create a website that was scalable, unique and a definate contender above its competition.

The website had utilised WordPress’ open-source framework with our standard set of premium plugins including Elementor, RankMath, Crocoblock and WP Rocket. This combination ensures every website element is customisable and dynamic while remaining simple as the base content management system (CMS).

Roadmap

You First Finance, a recent market entrant, understands the importance of continuous optimisation and targeted marketing to fuel its burgeoning success. Our initial marketing plans were designed with flexibility in mind, adapting to staffing levels and client workload. This adaptability ensured efficient resource allocation and maintained a high level of service, allowing us to capitalise on launch momentum and attract a steady stream of leads without encountering operational overload.
