Oscar started as the easy-to-understand health insurance for every freelancer in New York. As the company grew, expanding to a national network and deepening it's tech, its brand strategy and visual identity needed to grow as well. The brand team worked closely with pals at Franklyn to build a brand that resonates with members of all ages, locations, + languages, and is vibrantly human within the humdrum health insurance industry. This includes an illustration style showing real people with real emotion, a color palette that extends from marketing to product, typefaces that can deliver hard news along with good news, and a lifestyle photoshoot that highlights care.
