Traditional values, digitally driven

UGIS is a specialist underwriting agency delivering targeted products exclusively to the UK broker insurance market.
Established in 2000, UGIS required a rebrand to align with promoting their company and the launch of their new broker platform ‘Vibrant’ at the BIBA 2024 conference.

UGIS’s vision is to be an underwriting powerhouse for small to mid-sized brokers, by making complex underwriting simple and accessible. To achieve this, they have built a highly effective proprietary broker platform called ’Vibrant’. This benchmark platform positions UGIS at the forefront of the underwriting market for SME brokers, by providing a fast, flexible, end-to-end insurance service.

Our challenge was to capture their unique brand proposition, character and positioning, for UGIS to deliver it across a brand ecosystem with messaging, sub-brands, web, video, collateral, campaign comms and an exhibition stand, to promote their new Vibrant product in a short space of time.

Fortunately for us, the UGIS team were incredibly responsive and very invested in the brand process, which always helps with tight production timelines and importantly to achieve great results.


Our brand solution focused on a positioning of ‘traditional values, digitally driven’, creating an accessible brand world that reflected the friendly relationship-led business of UGIS, coupled with the simplicity and efficiency of the digital service provided through ‘Vibrant’. The brand is bold, confident and memorable to maximise impact and to support the ambition that UGIS has for its company, digital platform and its broker client base.

The underlined ‘U’ highlights their underwriting capabilities and introduces a visual brand language that can be both corporate professional and designer playful. This brand language provides great flexibility for future roll out across all branded marketing comms touchpoints. This is of course supported equally by simple, confident, playful and accessible messaging options. The brand language creates a stand-out brand, setting UGIS apart from their B2B insurance firm peers.

With these robust brand foundations in place, UGIS are now in a great position to promote their unique broker portal Vibrant, whose sub-brand reflects the UGIS brand language.


“We packed a punch, and hit our targets and that’s because we were well equipped, well designed and had the marketing mix just right.”

The great achievement for us, apart from getting everything across the line on budget in time for the BIBA roll-out, was the delivery of a dynamic brand identity that appeals and engages it’s target broker audience.

Importantly at a personal level, we know that we created a brand world that really reflects the ambition, values and ‘soul’ of the UGIS company, providing a brand vehicle that will enable and support their growth and future plans.

We packed a punch and hit our targets and that’s because we were well equipped, well designed and had the marketing mix just right.”

Our stand was impressive, it was one of the busiest at the BIBA event, considering the size of our stand, we think UGIS presented itself very well.”
