After acquiring Misys and merging it with Turaz, Vista Venture Capital created the world’s biggest specialist provider of global trade and risk management software for the banking sector. With the merger date committed, we were commissioned to create a launch strategy for Day One – aimed to unite employees from both companies and herald the start of a new era.

By identifying and focusing on the way in which Misys pays absolute attention to minute detail, we created the generative idea for the launch. Expressed as ‘Macro Micro’, we articulated the idea in a sign-off ‘The bigger picture in detail’.

These are some of the tweets posted after the launch of the newly merged company:
