Stash Invest Case Study

Investing for beginners via iOS and Android

Work With Us

When the team at Stash Invest wanted to help consumers take the leap from traditional savings accounts to investing, they partnered with AD:60 to create STASH, an easy-to-use application with the focus on creating a new way to invest in what you love.

The Task

Keeping Investing Simple

For the application, we focused on the need to implement a simple User Experience, backed by a clear strategy. Defining the look and feel of the app had to reflect not only the brand’s identity, but also had to ensure a clean layout so users did not feel overwhelmed when investing their money. Hand-drawn illustrations were added as navigation icons to give a level of playfulness and a universal feel that would allow us to expand the brand to new platforms over time.
