Professional Sports

 

Every team needs a utility player like us.

Creating venues as unreal as the moments in them.

Fans don’t settle for mediocre moments: we live for the games that alter hall-of-fame history or the unforgettable plays made for posters. At DI, we’re no different. Everything we design and build is about making the world take notice. Whether it’s 3D printing a 9-story commemorative torch or designing the tech-stacked facilities of the future, we’re creating fan experiences and building sponsor relationships that prove nothing is impossible. We have the guts to do what’s never been done before. And the team to do it—all in one place.
