Brand design: Tamara Barnoff

Tamara Barnoff is the creative inspiration behind our corporate brand and our website’s visual content.

With a background in high-end fashion design, she designs and creates pret-à-porter collections for women and men, haute couture creations, shoes, accessories, and eyewear under the Barnoff label.

She also works in fashion, film, and theatre. Her unique style and attitude to life and their application in corporate branding combine to mark a new direction for Capital Growth Solutions.

People are the real value, everything else is just tools. In the same way that everyone deserves to wear clothes that are comfortable and fit perfectly, so too should everyone have a personally tailored financial plan to help them achieve their goals.

With Barnoff style and TRUE Financial Planning we transcend generations. We represent those who are not afraid to be different, those who are accepting, those who are open to change.

Born in Tbilisi, Georgia, Tamara started designing at the age of 15 and moved to Budapest with her daughter in 2004 where they work together today.

Artwork: Eva Navarro

Eva Navarro is a Spanish painter based in Madrid where she studied Fine Arts at the Universidad Complutense, refining her skill and developing her passion at an Art Academy called Artaquio.

At first, she mainly painted landscapes but, gradually, characters started sneaking onto her canvasses. The human figure slowly became more and more important, until the day she decided to get rid of the landscapes and make the human figure the focus of her paintings. Through her anonymous characters she expresses what really matters to her: the intangible, the emotions, the time that vanishes, the existential doubts and worries of everyday life.

Her models are real people whose paths she has crossed. When travelling she takes thousands of photos of people and incorporates them into her particular world.

Looking for a theme for our new website, we were inspired by her work Life is mobile, which encapsulates the expatriates who make up our main client base.

Our registered office in Budapest overlooks St Stephen’s Basilica. From our vantage point, we can see the unique backdrop of Szent István tér, which she has incorporated so beautifully into the artwork we commissioned her to prepare based on the Life is mobile theme.

Copywriting: Írj Jól Kft

Financial services text will never win a Pulitzer prize. It can be very boring and full of technical language that turns off readers before they get the message.

Our brief to Mary, an experienced copy-editor, public speaker, and pitch doctor at Írj Jól Kft, was to convert our technical copy into plain, understandable English using consistent language and style.

We also wanted to give the serious subject matter a light-hearted touch to keep you engaged in the hope that at least one of our messages would strike a chord.
