What does your company do?
DCI-Artform is an industry-leading company and has been providing award-winning retail marketing solutions for more than 65 years to an extensive list of global clients. A full-service, integrated firm, DCI-Artform offers a wide range of expertise and decades of experience in retail merchandising and marketing for the automotive, cosmetics, grocery, packaged goods and consumer electronics industries.
What’s new for your company in 2014?
DCI-Artform, a global retail experience company, has announced it now has a new logo, tagline and website. Its tagline, “Retail Redefined,” builds on a platform of shopper marketing and merchandising innovation driven by its proprietary “Retail Science” methodology. The new website can be visited at www.dci-artform.com.
The updated DCI-Artform brand messaging comes on the heels of DCI-Artform officially becoming part of the Marmon Group, a division of Berkshire Hathaway, on January 2, 2014. It also comes at a time when DCI-Artform is focused on integrating its global presence and attracting the best talent to its offices worldwide.
DCI-Artform, a global leader in retail marketing and merchandising, has extended the application deadline for its InVisionship summer internship program specifically to attract more 3-D and interactive design and development students. Applications for these roles will be accepted through March 23, 2014 at www.dciartform.com/invisionship.
DCI-Artform, a leading global retail activation company, has upgraded the software for its “CAVE” (computer automatic virtual environment) to provide best-in-class graphic clarity. In addition, the company has hired Senior 3D Digital Modeler and Animation Artist Bill Jacoby to lead ongoing utilization of the CAVE to improve speed to market, consumer concept testing and cost savings for its clients.

It’s like an internship, but better! Interns are divided into three competition teams and given real challenges to solve for real companies. They will apply their best critical thinking and creativity to perform research and bring the resulting insights alive, utilizing design and digital capabilities. Interns will have access to our experienced staff of shopper marketing experts. At the end of the 10-week program, the three teams of interns will present their solutions to a panel of retail marketing experts at our international headquarters in Milwaukee
