1. After the UK-based Halifax bank debuted its new "Make it Happen" rebranding, it was accused of reusing assets from its rival Monzo. On Twitter, Monzo's chief executive Tom Blomfield pointed out that Halifax's promotional images included assets from Monzo's promotional decks. Halifax contracted the independent agency Rufus Leonard for the design, which responded that the incident was "embarrassing," but claimed the images showed an "early-stage" mockup that Halifax ultimately rejected. —THE DRUM
Hey @AskHalifaxBank 👋
It's great to see your updated brand identity, but it looks like you forgot to update couple of things.
The card in the photo still displays the @monzo BIN (5355 22) and the name of one of our staff members... 😉 pic.twitter.com/Ykqvz3mPZU
