After some speculation, the WPP / Dell global marketing firm, known up until now as Da Vinci, has a permanent name: Enfatico.
The word comes from musical notation, where it means to play each note “with emphasis” or “emphatically.”
For background, “Enfatico consolidates Dell’s worldwide marketing services, previously handled by more than 800 firms, into a single, wholly integrated global agency.”
