Chime Celebrates Financial Peace of Mind in New Campaign Created by Barrett


By thelaegotist / /

Chime, the #1 most loved mobile banking app, is launching “Happy Chime.” Created in partnership with Barrett, the campaign tells a holistic brand story that celebrates Chime’s belief that everyone deserves financial peace of mind.

Now more than ever, people are looking for an alternative to fee-based banking, and Chime offers consumers that choice. Chime’s products are designed to meet the needs of these everyday people.

“Chime offers more than financial products and services, we offer financial peace of mind. Our members have told us how good banking with Chime makes them feel, and this campaign looks to capture that,” said Thierry Ambraisse, Head of Creative, Chime.

The campaign recently broke nationally on MTV, Syfy, Lifetime, FOX, CW, Hulu, Pluto, Tubi, Peacock, and Paramount + and social media.  The spots, with a :60, three :30s, two :15s, and three :08s, follow a series of Chime members going about their day walking their dog, ordering ice cream, working only to have their day made brighter by receiving a message from Chime.

Watch the :60 here.

Easy credit building, early payday and fee-free overdrafts are more than a set of product features. They’re a collection of services that make up a customer-centric financial platform geared towards everyday people and makes them feel more in control of their financial health.

Barrett sought to represent the millions of people who use Chime as their primary (direct deposit) bank account. The agency worked closely with the celebrated American writer-director, Crystal Moselle to represent the small yet very authentic moments of delight experienced by Chime members every day. Each notification’s BING! sound integrates into the melody of the music as seamlessly as Chime integrates into members’ lives.

“How often do you hear someone say they love where they bank? People genuinely do love banking with Chime, we just had to bring that to life in a genuine way,” said Jamie Barrett, executive creative director, Barrett.

Barrett has worked with Chime on a number of campaigns since 2018. The goal of “Happy Chime” is to spread the word about the Chime mission and bring more Americans financial peace of mind.
