DMC topics
Popularizing packaging that promotes sales. =>
“Medi-DAN” (Corrugated box advertising)

Outer packaging such as corrugated boxes and intermediate boxes is not just for transporting items; it can also act as an advertising medium that can be utilized as a promotional tool in stores. Incorporating the information you wish to convey into outer packaging design makes it easier to promote your message in stores and other locations.

Perfect for gifts.

From seasonal to daily gifts, we continually update our packaging for special occasions and the special people in our consumers’ lives. We have planned and designed many types of gift packaging that show gift recipients how much you really care.

Taking full advantage of market information.

DMC collects a broad yet deep range of information on various types of product packing and packaging as well as distribution and sales measures, particularly for foodstuffs and toiletries. DMC is unique in that it understands consumer trends and changes in real time, which allows us to propose our insights—based on up-to-the-minute marketing information—to our clients via package designs.
