Capital Growth - Neil Davidson

Piggy Bank Concept:

Why are piggy banks so negative and boring? The Addi+ion piggy bank aims to change traditional concepts of the porcelain moneybox. Positivity and growth are key themes for this innovative little piggy bank. Coins are easily inserted through the “+” shaped money slot which reinforces the concept of saving money and adding wealth. Once a layer is filled, the Addi+ion piggy bank can grow and expand with extra layers providing extra savings capacity. As the bank grows it visually, emotionally and positively reinforces the act of saving money. When no more money can be added, the bank can be flipped over, snap in cover removed and the saver rewarded with their capital growth!
