SEE... what we do, SEE... who we do it for! (Click on images for larger view).
If you've been looking for one of those rare companies that still gives 110%............ guess what? You just found it! At DDI we expect high quality because we do our very best to give high quality!

Below you'll find a partial list showing some of our customers. Contact us for more information!
Cirque Du Soleil
The Circus is always in town... when your visiting the Bellagio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas - Nevada... and when we say Circus, we mean Cirque Du Soleil "O", which is definitely the show......
The Walt Disney Company
When Disneyland needed their Hitchhiking Ghosts to fly-the-coup on a happy-hike throughout their park and into Los Angeles.... who d'ya think they called? 12 Mascots (four of each) were produced in under a week! This happy haunt went off without a hitch! So happy in fact....... the next hike was held for a TV spot!
Titan Auto Insurance
Titan Auto Insurance has a cool character, which they turned into a cool bobble-head-figure. Now if your asking yourself, "Where do I go from a cool bobble-head-figure... and who do I call to create it?" Well... you go to a cool mascot character (of said logo) and you call... us! The version (at left) is the second model we made for the fine folks at Titan. They really dug the latex version we did for them (and so did we), but we thought "dis kat" would be ultra-cool (even larger) in a rigid-composite-resin, so....
Shady LTD. - Eminem
One day we received a call from Shady LTD. to design a few last minute display pieces needed (asap) to help introduce and promote their new clothing lines. Given the tight time-frame, our reply was simply............ 2 Chrome Chainsaws and 2 Battle-Bats coming right up! The success of our custom weapon campaign lead to some finely detailed gift figurines depicting the Shady LTD. logo. Each custom figurine was hand-made, nicely packaged and shipped to various industry friends and clients on behalf of Shady LTD.
Ben Chandler Political Commercial
What do Halloween and political campaigning have in common? Well, your basically putting on a mask, going door to door - and soliciting for as much stuff as possible, in a specifically alloted amount of time! You have to admit, the similarities are pretty scary....... and so is this congressional-campaign-commercial (click right) that we were asked to design this character-driven, custom mask for. Be careful next time you open your door, or your bill-fold (for that matter).......... yikes!
The Dark Carnival
Got Theme Park? - The Dark Carnival (NJ)! Two large fiberglass clown head props were designed, to "greet" the victims... uh, guests... as they enter (one of this States), most bizzare haunted attractions. Each head measured over four feet high and five feet wide. Complete with smoke-machine piping and glowing "globe" eyes!
Cherple - Globaltel Media, Inc.
A company who's products bridge the gap between the internet and mobile wireless cellular through SMS (text) messages. The Cherple logo is a cool stylized colorful bird. An equally cool stylized, full-size mascot head was needed on a fairly tight time-frame... and we delivered! Fully rendered in hollow-resin with a detachable inner helmet rig complete with padding, a nice gloss finish and waxed with love!
Midnight Creative Oil - Twentieth Century Fox
"Wait, where's the popcorn!" Movie magic (and some serious hustling on our part) was needed for this very last minute addition which was made and shipped to The Cannes Film Festival for the Simpson's Movie premier, 3D-display! Piping-hot custom prop-corn made to order and made to last! Forget about cavities, biting into this delicious treat will chip a tooth for sure! Oversized and fabricated in sturdy resin, this multi-piece prop made it's debut right on time!
The Sentaur Group - Battleheads
When The Sentaur Group secured the licensing for their football mask and collectible line of products, they had one company do all of their designs, prototypes, sampling, manufacturing, packaging and logistics (dare we say the entire gig?) A project spanning years with multiple teams, styles, and complicated materials of which had not been attempted in volume up until that point.... "got staying power?"
The Painted Turtle - Hole In The Wall Camp
The Painted Turtle is the sixth addition to Paul Newman's family of Hole In The Wall Camps for seriously ill children. It was a pleasure working with the camp, creating turtle-mascot-masks, for their star-studded Halloween Costume Ball! Twenty distinct and unique personalities, based on the camps logo-character!
Mt. San Antonio College
The mascot for Mount San Antonio College (located in sunny California), is a hardy wilderness chap, who's just chalk-full of character! The Aquatics Department contacted us regarding a three-foot-high statue, depicting the school's mascot, his name... "Joe Mountie". He needed to "live" outside, so he had to be made as tough as he looks! Re-enforced fiberglass/resin with an inner rigid-core and steel mounting-hardware did the trick. He's out there (pool-side), watching over the team... as they rub his foot (continuously) for good-luck! We hear it's working well!
Strategic Perception, Inc.
Politicians Wearing Masks? We get numerous inquiries for satirical and non satirical masks based on many a fun-lovin' political figure! When Bob Sullivan decided to run for Governor of Oklahoma, a TV Commercial produced for his campaign required our particular talents! Click on his image (at right) and enjoy this funny 30 second spot! Now in regards to the video title typo.............. hey we just made the masks folks!
Professorit.com is the place to go, if you want to educate yourself, on - well... almost anything! Their mascot-character was a blast to create. Complete with golden-specs, this cerebral-sage, not only educates...... he invigorates! Click-on his image and enjoy those craaazy dance-moves!
When the fine folks at You Software asked us to design an over-sized mascot head based on their company logo, we said no. Actually we said sure, we'd be glad too! A large flex-resin light-weight sphere design with detachable padded inner helmet rig was utilized for optimum comfort, fit and easy "on-off". Finished by spraying multiple coats of automotive flex-base/clear-coat and yet another quick turn-around...... was out-the-door!
We know masks inside and out. When an inquiry came in from the Cinder Block music merchandising company for a few thousand custom masks based on the Misfits band) logo character, we said... let's do it! Guess a few thousand units weren't quite enough to appease the Misfits fans and their insatiable appetites! Not a problem.......... a few thousand additional units were ordered, completed and shipped without delay!
"A few thousand masks please, and step on it!" Not exactly in those words, but the basic idea is the same. When Point Roll contacted us and asked for their character to be immortalized in plastic (a lot of plastic) for one of their unique marketing campaigns, we met the challenge head-on! Another interesting project taken from initial sculptural-design and prototype, to sampling, high volume production and logistics!
