The St. Louis Skyline Gets a New Look
St. Louis, MO (June 24, 2013) – Those visiting downtown St. Louis will soon see a new logo in the skyline. This week, the ShipWorks logo will be added to the top of the east side of Gateway Tower at One Memorial Drive in downtown St. Louis. Street level logos will also be added to the exterior of the building near the main entrance and on Memorial Drive. Another logo will be added to the top of the west side of Gateway Tower later this summer. The signs at the top of Gateway Tower will be visible throughout the downtown area, including from most seats in Busch Stadium and the Arch.
ShipWorks, the leading provider of multi-carrier e-commerce shipping software, has occupied the 20th floor of Gateway Tower since the summer of 2012. The company’s logo is three distinct cubes in primary colors, which signifies ShipWorks commitment to making e-commerce shipping software that has robust features while being easy to use.
“We are grateful for the support of the St. Louis community and proud that our roots are here,” said Wes Clayton, co-CEO and COO. “The e-commerce market is growing at exponential rates and is projected to reach $370 billion by 2017.* We want to help drive our customer’s growth by making it possible for e-commerce sellers to focus on selling products and growing their business, not spending hours a day shipping packages.”
ShipWorks’ modern office has an open floor plan with unobstructed views of the city. It was designed by award-winning architect Alan Nehring of Nehring Design, and is considered one of the premier office spaces in downtown St. Louis.
“We are fortunate to have a spectacular, 360-degree view of downtown St. Louis,” said Brian Nottingham, co-CEO and CTO. “When working with Alan, we wanted to create an open and informal environment that sparked creativity, was collaborative and functional, and was uniquely ours. We have achieved that goal. The space allows us to work hard and have a great time.”
