Launching a campaign with a new visual image Aruba Bank continues to develop its brand celebrating the launch with a week-long Customer Appreciation

As an expression of its dynamic and innovative brand, Aruba Bank has continually evolved its product and is currently launching a new visual image as part of its distinctive communication style.

In 2004, Aruba Bank launched its new branding concept. The bank continued to mature and progress internally, in sync with its fresh look, also enhancing the method of communication with its clients. The focal point of Aruba Bank’s interaction with clients is its new visual approach, unveiled today by means of a singular campaign.

The change of a visual image is an external expression of internal processes, and is of major importance to the company, reflecting its dynamic course, and evolutionary nature. That introduction of new ideas and concepts, keeps Aruba Bank in the forefront of banking on the island, and safeguards it appeal to the local community. With the change in its visual image, Aruba Bank is now prepared to bring change to the way it promotes itself, and to the way it communicates, delivering a unique message to its clients and the public in general.

Within Aruba Bank’s new communication style, the bank again demonstrates how well it understands its clients and their banking needs, throughout their entire life cycle.

The new Aruba Bank ads focus on the diverse personalities who come to Aruba Bank for their even more-diverse banking need. As the clients present their questions, the bank answers, matching each challenge with the appropriate solution, delivering desirable products and services. The various personalities used in the ads, reflect all walks of life, and all target groups.

Along with a new print campaign, Aruba Bank is also launching a refreshed website with a new approach: www.arubabank.com, delivering a renovated identity, and concentrating exclusively on clients and their financial needs.

At the same time, Aruba Bank has also launched Aruba Bank Online (ABO) mobile, which allows users to complete ABO bank transactions, via their Blackberry, Android and Smartphone.

With the completion of the project, Aruba Bank wanted to celebrate the introduction of its new visual image with its clients. The special celebration starts on August 26th and goes on through the entire week. From Monday, August 26th, until Friday, August 31st, clients who visit any of the Aruba Bank branches will receive a special treat, as well as a small token of appreciation, on Monday and Friday.

To make the introduction of the new visual image even more meaningful, Aruba Bank has introduced its Aruba Bank Scholarship Program.
