THE VISA BANK OF THE FUTURE UI/UX CHALLENGE
Your teams mission: design the future bank. This is your chance to collaborate with a multidisciplinary team to design a banking and payment app – to create a fresh user experience, combining insights, ingenuity and a toolbox of innovation all enabled by Visa and Visa Developer APIs.
The bank of the future will need to constantly adapt and accommodate new innovations. The interface you design will not only shape consumer experience, but also human behaviour as users adopt and adapt to new technology. The finished product will cleverly integrate innovative and disruptive technologies into the design for a mobile banking and payment app that feels intuitive and effortless.
The winning team of this competition will collect the top cash prize of $15,000, and potentially a chance to work with Visa to build a prototype of the Team’s Submission with the Visa Developer Program.
Congratulations Hasta La Visa!
Winner of the Visa Bank of the Future UI/UX Challenge.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE
- Campus Linked Accelerators / Incubators

Teams should be made up of a multidisciplinary group of individuals – a healthy mix of the right and left brain. Teams should be made up of at least 4 team members and a maximum of 6.
THERE ARE 6 MAIN COMPONENTS
Create a summary of the target audience that highlights demographics, needs, motivations and behaviours.
(Bonus Points) If you can prove that you have gathered key insights and data about the target audience, you will be awarded bonus points. Use the results to prioritize features and define key performance indicators (KPIs).
Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
Determine what KPIs will inform your design decisions – how will you measure the impact of your UX efforts.
Consumer Journey Map
Create a diagram that explores the multiple steps taken by consumers as they engage with the product. This should help frame your consumer’s motivations and needs in each step of the journey as you’ll be creating design solutions for them.
Compile images and references that will eventually evolve into your product’s visual style guide.
Create a final visual mockup of the user flow – this should be a series of interface designs that show key screens from initial user registration, to the completion of key tasks or uses of key features leveraging one or more Visa Developer APIs.
The final deliverable is a presentation that shows your final design interface and explains how your team arrived at this mobile banking and payment app experience, while also showing how the UI/UX took advantage of the various Visa Developer APIs.
A visual presentation (in PDF) that summarizes components 1 through 5, ultimately validating how you arrived at the component number 6 – the user flow designs. Submissions due November 30.
The four finalists will be asked to create a widescreen (16:9) PowerPoint presentation to be presented at Mobey Day, December 8th at the Four Seasons Toronto in front of the judging panel and audience.
