BARBARICUM DELIVERS AWARD-WINNING WORK FOR ITS CLIENT
Barbaricum support results in two integrated communications awards for the Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency
WASHINGTON, D.C., May 21, 2020 – Barbaricum’s integrated communication support for the Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA) resulted in awards by the Defense Media Activity and the Academy of Interactive & Visual Arts (AIVA) in May 2020.
Barbaricum provides essential branding and change management services to DCSA that supported the agency’s successful rebrand from the Defense Security Service as it took on the federal government’s background investigation mission from the Office of Personnel Management’s National Background Investigation Bureau and other elements. Barbaricum delivers integrated communication efforts to DCSA, including strategic communication and planning, brand management, graphic design, social media, writing, and editing, as well as reporting and analysis.
In May 2020, the Defense Media Activity awarded DCSA’s Commemorative Issue of ACCESS Magazine the Defense Media Merit Award in the Publication category. To support DCSA in producing award-winning work, Barbaricum provided writing, editing, graphic design, and 508 compliance / accessibility services to produce a magazine edition that would introduce the new agency, honor the legacy agencies, and showcase the new agency brand and culture.
Additionally, the AIVA awarded DCSA’s “Transfer, Transition, Transformation” social media campaign an Award of Distinction for a Content & Marketing-Branded Social Post. Barbaricum provided social media and graphic design services that planned, implemented, monitored, and evaluated the campaign. Barbaricum was able to successfully design its outreach efforts to help DCSA increase awareness of the new agency and engage target audiences about its new background investigation mission.
“Congratulations to DCSA and the entire Barbaricum team for their outstanding work and dedication to mission support,” Brandon Bloodworth, Barbaricum Partner said. “Ensuring we support our client’s missions is why we do this work. We’re grateful to provide integrated communications services to DCSA and look forward to celebrating more award-winning work for the agency!”
