    Behind the scenes of the Truist Cares campaign with Agency of the Year, StrawberryFrog

    Welcome to the Tearsheet Podcast. I’m Tearsheet editor in chief, Zack Miller.

    The best marketing and advertisements stay with you. They speak to the zeitgeist in the world at a specific time with the right words, the right imagery, the right message. Creative agency StrawberryFrog has worked with Truist, the combined BB&T and SunTrust bank, on its rebranding. When Covid hit early in 2020, the team pivoted, launching a series of campaigns that spoke of hope and combined destiny, that together, we’ll make it through. StrawberryFrog’s CEO and founder Scott Goodson and head of strategy, Chip Walker join us on the podcast to take us behind the scenes of the Live United campaign, that combines Truist, the United Way, and youth poet laureate Amanda Gorman, who delivers an inspirational message at a time it was needed most.

    StrawberryFrog won Tearsheet’s Agency of the Year Award for 2021.

    Here’s my discussion with Scott and Chip.

    Outlier Briefing: Frontify's MJ Mueller on creating the most valuable financial brands

    Outlier Briefing: Frontify's MJ Mueller on creating the most valuable financial brands

    Welcome to Tearsheet’s Outlier Briefing. This subscriber-only content is exclusive for our Outlier members. We go deeper with subject matter experts, to take actionable steps that can impact your business and practice.

    With all the new entrants to banking and financial services, there’s a sea of sameness around certain parts of the industry. Branding can take a product surrounded by competition and really make it memorable. But to do that, everyone needs to be on the same page. Marketing, PR, product, sales — there’s a consistency great brands have that underlies everything they do.

    Today’s guest is MJ Mueller, CMO of Frontify. The Swiss software company provides a brand management platform, working with large financial brands all over the world to build powerful brand experiences. MJ discusses how top financial brands — whether they’re incumbents or digital-only — make remarkable impressions and why collaboration and consistency are so important. We talk about the challenges the pandemic has posed for top and emerging brands. Lastly, MJ touches on the future of branding in the financial space.

    'Making the browser and a superior wallet work better, together': Opera's Krystian Kolondra

    'Making the browser and a superior wallet work better, together': Opera's Krystian Kolondra

    Welcome to the Tearsheet Podcast. I’m Tearsheet’s editor in chief, Zack Miller.

    A few years back, there was a race to embed payments into the browser. It makes sense, too. Most people who access the web through their computers use a browser to shop and bank. While the noise has died down, the Opera browser has continued to work on integrating financial services. Opera has 380 million users globally, with 50 million active European users. The firm is launching an app that gives its users cashback on purchases made through partner websites via the Opera browser. Users can also use the new app to open a current account and get a virtual debit card to shop online and off. The firm plans to offer savings, credit and investment opportunities in the future.

    Joining us on the podcast today is Krystian Kolondra, EVP Browsers & EEA Fintech at Opera.

    Behind Marqeta's launch into credit card issuance with Kevin Doerr

    Welcome to the Tearsheet Podcast. I’m Zack Miller, Tearsheet’s editor in chief.

    A lot is going on the issuing side. New players are entering, competition is crossing borders, and existing players are expanding into new products. Marqeta is making perhaps the biggest expansion of its platform since it’s launched.

    I’m joined by Chief Product Officer Kevin Doerr to talk about the firm’s new credit card issuing platform. We talk about what that means for the firm, its customers, and its competition. Doerr joined the firm last year and it’s been a wild one — he shares his experiences that show a company in growth mode coping with the changes of organic expansion, as well as challenges of dealing with the pandemic.

    Kevin Doerr is my guest today on the Tearsheet Podcast.

    In 2015, Bank of Georgia launched a mobile bank. Ever since, it’s been ramping up its digital transformation program.

It created crossfunctional teams to develop banking products and to design the digital channels

    The following was produced by Tearsheet Studio. We worked with fintech software provider Strands to create a visual and audio case study about Bank of Georgia's digital transformation.

Great guests and content!

Perfect length, the podcast strikes the right balance of not too long, but just long enough to squeeze really interesting and valuable content out of each guest. I've enjoyed the recent focus on fintech, InsureTech, and marketing.
