ECSI worked closely with
MediaWorks LLC, a media development agency, to create a new and unique
marketing package. The first step was the creation of a new logo.
From there, new business cards and letterhead were developed. The
final step in the process is the creation of a new and dynamic website
that will incorporate the logo and design features. Says Mr. Pope,
President & CEO, "I wanted a look that would make a statement.
ECSI is a dynamic company that is continually moving forward in the e-commerce
arena. The new logo and unique, rounded shape of the business cards and
letterhead shows that ECSI is at the cutting edge".
In September 2000 ECSI relocated
to new and larger offices in Chantilly, VA. ECSI's continued growth
dictated the need for more office space and prompted the relocation.
ECSI's new headquarters at 43069 Eustis Street, Suite 300 provide the additional
office space required.
