+ Company Summary Sheet

Strategy is not a department here, it’s in everything we do.

Our clients talk to those doing the work, not someone in the middle, and our bright team of highly motivated individuals provides a feel and attitude that sets us apart. We are a hybrid, cross-disciplined group working in an open environment. We keep it simple. We give extra.

Our Three-Legged Stool

All the best work sits on top of a 3-legged stool, and a well designed stool depends on the balance of equal foundations. If any one leg gets cut short, the work itself could fall. Our creative follows a similar philosophy and those foundations are:

  1. Clients are the source of all we accomplish. We listen closely.
  2. Consumers are who we design for and the reason our clients exist.
  3. Creative integrity is the lifeblood of ECP. It’s harder to get work out our own doors than it is to obtain client approval.
