Brand design guidelines for First Direct - one in a series of highly coveted identity manuals designed by North in the late 1990's and 2000's.
First Direct. Black & White. A Conversation.
"The 224-page document that North created for telephone- and internet-bank First Direct in 2008 is a little different to most design manuals. ‘Black & White: A Conversation’ introduced a branding overhaul for the bank (founded in 1989 by Midland Bank), which included a new vertical logo and minimalist black and white colour palette. But in addition to conveying how the refreshed identity would work, the manual functioned as a wider brand book, with tone of voice a vital component." (Source) www.uniteditions.com
