Food for thought‘[...] do not think that good design can make a poor product good, whether the product be a machine, a building, a promotional brochure or a business man. But [...] good design can materially help make a good product reach its full potential. In short, [...] good design is good business.’

Banking in photos

November 12, 2008, 8:11 PM

Typical Murphy, after working on at least four design projects concerning banking (finance, to be more precise) in one form or another, after spending days scavanging for related pictures on the internet, after asking friends to risk getting arrested photographing banks while on vacation abroad, it took one random search through Flickr to find the banking in photos group.

So, if you need examples of fascias, interiors, ATM’s, window treatments etc, that’s the place. Feel free to add your photos, obviously :)






and last but not least, a “supermarket” bank (they’ll probably have to downgrade to street kiosks due to the financial crisis, though :P)


(pictures from flickr, obviously)




so what have we learned today? flickr is more usefull than we thought :P

bradford& bingley looks the nicest, though i might say that because of the building .. : )

That’s my fav too, but I think it’s because it’s so “british” in everything, from the Gill Sans typeface to the building. And because of the weather, of course :))


so, you’re into british stuff :)
i think alliance leicester looks great as well ;;)

Well, my all-time fav is the former Postbank, now part of ING. Dutch design still remains amazing, always refreshing :)


Have your say: English please
