Nerd Wallet Extends "Turn to the Nerds" Platform in New Campaign; First Work Under New CMO

“Turn to the Nerds” launched last summer, and it was designed to introduce the NerdWallet brand as a friendly, approachable resource - and showed this with shouting giant text landing in everyday situations. This campaign opens it up, because we all have “Money Questions”, but we don't often get great answers from the people around us. The first spot in the campaign shows all the money questions we asks ourselves, be they big or small.

This is the first campaign to launch under the leadership of Nerd Wallet’s first-ever Chief Marketing Officer, Kelly Gillease, whose appointment was just announced. “NerdWallet has a team of passionate Nerds that work to answer the personal finance questions people have most - from which credit card is best for me, to how to shop for my first home,” Gillease said. “In our new Money Questions campaign, we highlight how NerdWallet helps to get you the information you need - in an easy-to-understand way - so you can make the best financial decision for you.”

When asked about the new work, ARGONAUT Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Hunter Hindman, said: “We’re really proud of where we’ve taken the “Turn to the Nerds” platform over the last year and the “Money Questions” work is some of our best yet. It’s overwhelming for people to know where to go with their money questions. With this campaign, we have been able to distill all of what NerdWallet does down to a simple, compelling human benefit that can live seamlessly across both NerdWallet products as well as our varied media touch points.”
