Key Brand Elements: 

  1. Logo: The “K” logo system was designed to embrace their core mission around personalization. Whether on print or digital, the logo can be customised with each of Kathrein’s clients’ names. 
  2. Graphic Ornaments & Patterns: To represent Kathrein’s heritage in Austria, we drew from visuals from the Viennese Secession to create a series of graphic ornaments & patterns. As the leading national private bank, we wanted to double down on their roots to separate them from their larger international competitors. 
  3. Marble Art Direction: Marble is also an essential part of Viennese art and architecture history, so we created a series of sculptures that relate to different categories of financial investments such as sustainable solutions, artificial intelligence, and the arts.

&Walsh rebrands Kathrein Privatbank as the most personalized banking experience in Austria. Kathrein Privatbank is a leading private bank in Austria, helping clients to better live their narrative with the most personalized experience. Every product and service they offer is in the pursuit of the personal. In their identity, we focused on bringing forward Kathrein’s Austrian roots in combination with their deep commitment to personalization to separate them from their larger international competitors.
