The Big Picture

How do you prove you’re you online, where you can’t present a physical ID card? has the answer. is revolutionizing identity in the digital age by simplifying how individuals securely prove and share their identity online.

The Backstory’s founder, an Army veteran, saw serious flaws in the way veterans were required to prove their service in order to access military discounts at retail and restaurants. So he created a way for veterans to verify their service status entirely online, through a mobile device, massively reducing error, improving security and streamlining access. But the principle of affiliation-based identity extends far further – to teachers, students, first responders, government employees – and ultimately to all people.

Since its founding in 2014, grew rapidly, transforming from affiliation verification provider for group discounts, to a game-changing online identity verification platform, used by hundreds of vendors, financial service organizations and government agencies. As the company grew, it’s brand needed to evolve, from innovative tech startup to trusted enterprise technology.

At the time, the Mobile Wallet was the primary tool through which users managed their various group affiliations. We conducted a full UX / UI redesign of the mobile app experience.

The Full Story

The Solution

After the initial Mobile Wallet project, engaged Punch to provide ongoing creative support. After two years working as an extension of the in-house marketing team, we took the opportunity to zoom out and look strategically at the brand. There were key areas – the website, sales materials, Shop and email marketing – that needed to be refreshed and revised for consistency, and to create an experience that aligned with the company’s growth trajectory.

We worked closely with leaders to redesign the website, collaborating with the in-house marketing and development teams. We redesigned the Shop, and the related consumer-facing email and social media campaigns. In addition, we designed a multitude of presentations and sales collateral to equip the executive team and salespeople with a clear, consistent and compelling message.
