What does a goat have to do with banking?
A lot, actually

Brand Strategy / Advertising / Digital / Social
 
All regional bank marketing sounds samey.
At least, it does to the kind of people MountainOne serves: Working people and small business owners who have a lot going on in their lives and little time to think about banks.
 
 

The IDEA

Don’t talk about yourself —
have a goat do it.

As part of rebranding MountainOne, we developed a character: Mo the Spokesgoat. Sure-footed and resilient, Mo is a caprine stand-in for the bank’s dedicated, down-to-earth humans.

 
 
 

Mo is making
his mark

On TV and digital, from out-of-home to social (where Mo likes to shout out his fellow G.O.A.T. Tom Brady), MountainOne’s new brand platform and advertising campaign are hiking brand awareness to ever-loftier peaks.

The Brand

A brand platform that
feels like second nature

Once Mo got people’s attention, we wanted them to keep noticing MountainOne. Nature-inspired colors and landscape photos from MountainOne’s neck of the woods make the brand stand out.

“Having a spokesgoat helps our bank stand out in a crowded category and lets us talk about financial services with a sense of humor.”
