CZ bank is one of 12 nation-wide joint-stock commercial banks in China，headquartered in Hangzhou. Compared with its peer competitors, CZ bank is perceived as a local small bank with a traditional image. In 2016, the bank launched its new brand strategy and decided its value proposition as an “energizing agent” to financial ecosystems. However, the locally SME banking image didn't reflect the brand goal. This means a new brand identity is needed to turn the current traditional image into a young and modern style while recognizing its legacy.
