The new partnership will result in a fully integrated campaign which explores the concept of taking control of your money, with a playful take on the science behind why we spend in the way we do.
Pauline Van Brakel, chief product officer at Yolt said: “2020 was certainly the year that forced all of us to think about our finances and whether it’s to free up money for a rainy-day fund, stash some cash away for Christmas or pay off debt, saving and spending smart has never been so important.
That’s why we’ve evolved Yolt to help people to save whilst they spend. When looking for a strategic partner to help us meet our brief of driving brand awareness, empowering as many people as possible to be smart with their money - we were really impressed by Uncommon’s insight and disruptive creative approach. We can’t wait to launch our new digital campaign early next year.”

At a time of economic uncertainty, its purpose has never felt more relevant. We can’t wait to make them famous and launch Yolt’s new disruptive look and feel early next year.”
