Bank of England Technology Competition

  • Emma Youell

The Technology competition is a competition for graduates that takes place every year. The theme of the 2018 competition was "Open Banking", and we asked entrants to explore Open Banking and think about the ways a central bank can benefit from it. The challenge The theme of the competition couldn't be revealed until the launch, so Creative Comms had to work with a few clues. We decided to anticipate the main theme (Open Banking), creating interest around that. The idea The idea represented the concept of Open Banking with the analogy of a toolbox filled with "tech tools", such as API, code, security, mobile, cloud computing, and even tea for a break and spare fingers in case there's too much coding to do! We've designed a 3D toolbox with the help of an award-winning 3D artist, plus a video and social media assets. My role Animator, Video Editor.
