What’s new ?
We wanted a brand new logo, color scheme, typeface that embodies our core values as a company. Hence, We redesigned our logo to reinforce our commitment to excellent customer service, transparency, innovation and resilience. The new brand logo is modern with more whitespaces, clean colors, and an attractive style.
So I think the ideology behind the previous one is still the same with this new one as well. Just simplified and modern. The aladdin logomark comprises of two elements, the letter “A” and an arch which symbolizes a bridge.
The bridge represents the core of Aladdin’s mission, which is to bridge the gap between customers and allow them to interact socially and commercially on the app as opposed to how traditional bank apps works “

The future of Banking in Africa
We believe that Africa needs a different type of banking especially due to the fact that 70% of Africans have side hustles. We put food on our table through various hustles ranging from 9–5 jobs, freelancing, side gigs, and small businesses. We equally know that access to money is important because most people don’t have the time to juggle their side hustle with their 9–5 or main hustle.
That’s why we decided to build Aladdin, a digital bank with a marketplace designed to support our daily hustle. We’ve made it easier for Africans to earn, spend, save and invest securely in one bank while doing what they love, Interact. We always aim to be a bank that lets you connect financially as well as socially.
Simply put, we wanted to build an app that our customers will love, so we made it better — — David (CTO, Aladdin)
The New Banking Experience: Coming soon…..
On January 6th, 2021, Aladdin was born out of the need to make all our customers’ financial wishes come true. As we progressed, we saw that for financial wishes to come true, we needed to provide the tools that help each of our customers earn more and build wealth in the long run.
Over the past few months we have been rebuilding the app to offer a completely new experience in line with customers feedback and our evolved vision. We will be rolling out the new app in the next couple of days. Here is all the new Aladdin app will offer;
