Necessary design
Design for millions

Hi there. This is our story. It's a story about a group of designers working in a bank and doing our best to make money simple.

Financial services are necessary for our day-to-day lives. They go from the tiniest moment — paying your friend back for lunch — to the biggest, like applying for a mortgage. And that's why it's really important we design them well.

One band, one sound

We are a team of 60 (and growing) based out of Singapore. We are gamers, cat lovers, calligraphists, crazy gardeners, marathoners, cyclists, ukulele-players. 15 nationalities, and counting.

"People make the team. While investing the time to find the right people for each role is key, supporting the growth of those who have joined is just as critical."

Help us rock the boat

‘I want to work at a bank’ said no designer ever. But they really should say that. Because banking isn't boring. Not when you're in it with a great bunch people who are ready to rock the boat.
