Assignment

With the objective of increasing usage, First Citizens introduced a series of new bank cards, each with different benefits and capabilities. With the myriad of bank card options available to consumers, Frederick Swanston was tasked with the assignment of designing the cards in a way that would make them more appealing, and somehow appear to be more than they are.
