DeCotis Specialty Insurance is a family-owned New England surplus and excess insurance wholesaler; they are one of our oldest clients and have trusted us for years to meet their marketing needs. The company’s executive leadership felt that their brand was ready to evolve and wanted to revitalize their brand with a more modern look for recruitment purposes and to stand out and compete against larger national brands in the surplus insurance market.


We executed a complete brand identity overhaul to demonstrate the agency’s wide range of service offerings. Since our client specializes in high-risk coverage, we chose a multi-color prism effect for the brandmark—a risky choice that captured the brand’s willingness to take risks on behalf of their customers.

The effect is a visually distinctive look that is both playful and bold. And rather than help DeCotis appear “like-classed”, it set the brand apart when compared to the more traditional look of other insurance agencies.

We designed a brand-new website with cleaner UX/UI and carried the visuals and messaging across corporate social media profiles. A yearlong marketing plan was drafted, and we ran a soft rollout to staff framed as a series of business development workshops.
