The OLA Money card has a sleek design. Something along those lines. Also you could have a QR code on the back incase someone wants to transfer money to your acc without adding you (like BHIM / GPAY codes).
Maybe 3-4 options in a gradient or solid colour scheme(like Revolut). And special (limited) edition one can be made of metal (to reward initial users).
Flashy and screams of pedigree. People have Amex and Diners. I have always loved Amex Black and Diners. Keep it minimal and elegant!
Utility & acceptance. Not sure if people want these cards to be accepted like a VISA or Mastercard (we all have those). As long as they are accepted in key merchants, that should suffice (for me atleast)
Service & Benefits. We all need to be pampered! The reason Amex exists is its amazing service & decent benefits catalog.
Something like this in different colours would attract a lot of attention. There are many other designs to consider and create. People could have the option of selecting colour, design and body material of the card.
Also, why not put out another option of just customizing it by ourselves? We could upload pictures in the app and they’d be printed on the card. That would be huge for social media exposure. Imagine a family photo “drive safe” card or someone printing “I’ll not buy smokes” on theirs. They’d be like tattoos. With the right marketing digital artists would go nuts on it.
The card would be an expression of self and “Mood”. Which means sooner or later people will want a different one and they’ll order again!
Explore different materials for the card, ceramic, graphite, sandblasted aluminium, etc., with a soft matte finish that makes it not only to stand out but both great to hold, both for the customer and someone who’s gonna swipe it.
Goes without saying give options to users to select from a bunch of predefined colours, let us make it more of a style statement than just another payment instrument
@Aniruddha from a design perspective the ola card is sleek and minimal.
Depends on individual tastes; Revolut has a sleek/ minimal design but the N26 is quirky! It’s a semi transparent card so you can see the internals (chip and contactless circuit).
And both are good quality.
Definitely, ceramic might be a bit fragile, if its falls, that’s why mentioned ‘explore materials’… people are doing metal cards, but there are ‘n’ options of the metal, it can be steel, aluminium, copper, brass, graphene, or some kind of alloy as well and their combinations with carbon fibre, cutting and etching can create some crazy designs. Each with a possibly different texture, weight, and overall feel.
Slightly more ambitious
A lot has been explored in the space of business/membership cards. In banking’s context, we just need a space for a chip, nfc and magstrip. All these can be easily accomodated
Adding to that, its final form and design might be controlled by the partner bank, and existing card manufacturers as well, which is a bigger challenge than designing the card and bearing the it’s cost
So, why hold back when we’re imagining
Even more ambitous?
Why not get all your cards under a single card like
