Explanation:
That would be a better translation of the phrase you are looking for.

"Display maker" sounds like a "maker of display cabinets" (by the way, "maker" cannot be used in this context: "to make" usually has a physical connotation with a physical end product - used in the context of cabinet making, for example). Using "maker" here would be a "bad case of interference" (with German seeping into English, as it were).
