DMI Studios Featured in Green Bay News Article
Oct. 16, 2012 10:41 am
Owner David Troup had the opportunity to share his vision for the DMI Studios rebrand in the Green Bay Chamber of Commerce Spotlight section of The Business News. Here's the highlight reel:
DMI Studios is well-known around Green Bay as being an industry expert for all things related to the web. Owner, David Troup, can periodically be heard on talk radio informing people about the story of DMI Studios, their creativity and cutting-edge technology as well as giving helpful marketing tips to area listeners.
DMI Studios "...is taking its own advice these days and giving itself a new look to better tell its story as a major player in web design, web solutions and online marketing in Green Bay and around the globe."
Few people may realize that DMI Studios developed one of the NFL's most popular websites: packers.com. DMI had the foresight to secure the "Packers" domain name as well as related names that the organization is able to utilize today. DMI Studios continues to work in a collaborative manner with the Packers and are heavily involved with the Packers Pro Shop.
"DMI Studios' world is all about the Internet, and the staff -- some of whom have been with the company since its beginnings -- are ready to lead clients into their futures with an interactive vision, said Troup. On the website is a listing of many of their clients - something many businesses shy away from divulging. But not Troup who is known for relishing a competitive edge - especially with himself."
"DMI Studios is at its best, he said, when a client presents them with a seemingly impossible request. It's a joke between him and his staff, he said, 'Ok, what did you sell that doesn't exist?' "
Troup states, "It's all about pushing the envelope in technology, and more graphically he refers to it as "the bleeding edge". How's that for a mental image?
" 'At the end of the day, we want our client to succeed,' said Troup."
