ZOPA has teamed up with illustrator and social media favourite Chaz Hutton to help savers, spenders and investors get to know their money better.
Hutton, who displays his work on Instagram and Twitter, has produced a series of illustrations for the peer-to-peer lender to shed some light on the financial tools and concepts we use every day, such as how credit cards work and why compound interest is so important.
“At Zopa, we want to make people feel good about money, but we know that talking about finances and understanding them can be intimidating at times,” Clare Gambardella, chief customer officer at Zopa, said.
“So to make things a bit simpler, we’ve commissioned InstaChaaz, an illustrator well known for simplifying some of life’s most complicated concepts.”
The series also considers what your spare change talks about.
“I’m not a finance expert, but I can draw comics, which is why I enjoyed being able to create these comics to help cut through the complexity of finance,” Hutton said.
“They show that you don’t need to be a financial whiz to know how to make your money work harder for you.
“When Zopa came to me with this brief, it made me wonder what type of conversations that spare change we’ve all got in our pocket or purse could hypothetically be talking about right now.”
