Desmond Credit Union

Project overview

Desmond Credit Union is based in Newcastle West, Co. Limerick. Established in 1972, it has over 10,000 members who come together to save and borrow money at low rates. Like all credit unions, it is 100% owned by its members and a key part of the local community.

They contacted us a number of years ago, having seen the work we had done for other credit unions around the country. With the worst of the recession behind them, and a renewed focus on lending, they needed a new website and marketing strategy for the next phase of their growth.

We love working with credit unions, and this project was no exception. The website is proving very effective in driving new loan applications. We continue to work with them on a weekly basis, fulfilling all their marketing needs, especially direct mail.

Central to the new website was the loan calculator which we put on the home page. Lending is the core business of any credit union, and we wanted visitors to the website to see the loan calculator straight away. As for the design, it was important that the website felt like it belonged to Newcastle West, which is why we used images of the credit union and local streetscapes.
