"Destination DMC" Video Guides You to DMC's Office

DMC has been creating a video series to describe who we are and what we do. In addition to understanding the work we do, we thought it would be helpful if people understood how to travel to our office. Despite our web directions, Google Maps, Yahoo Maps, MapQuest, and the infallible Siri, visitors would still have trouble getting to our office every once in a while.   We wanted to create a helpful and instructive video, and we hope we've accomplished that,...

Improv and Wrigley Rooftop Baseball

Working for DMC means that a few times every year you get to participate in an all-day company meeting. These meetings take place offsite and they give everyone a chance to have a great time together while taking part in brainstorming sessions and fun team building exercises. After hearing about and seeing photos from previous ADCMs that involved a tour of Chicago and ziplining, I was beyond excited to experience my first one at Murphy’s Rooftop in Wrigelyville. The whole DMC crew met u...

Mark's Welcome Party with Blues Traveler

Seeing Blues Traveler perform at Harry Caray’s on Navy Pier for Mark Locascio's welcome party is not the ordinary Thursday evening. However, Mark is not an ordinary person, but an extraordinary and very important person who deserves to receive such a label at least once in his life. That is just what he was able to experience on September 27 with the Gold VIP pass to the event along with the other DMC Blues Traveler fans! With the benefit of the Gold VIP pass, we enjo...
