We're a small crew doing big things

Love your

Hello! We’re The Digital Ring: a small(ish) crew doing big things for our clients. We’re pros at listening to your big-picture business goals before creating and executing a digital marketing plan to help you achieve them.

Since our 2015 launch, we’ve grown into an award-winning team known for strategic, sophisticated work — but we’ll always embody the scrappy grit of a startup. We outwork the competition, we think outside the box, and we push the envelope… all while managing to have just a little bit of fun.

Ideas we live &
work by

Treat the client’s organization as if it were your own

Every member of the crew is responsible for the success of our clients. We hold each other accountable, expecting strategic thinking, attention to detail, and inner drive from each other.

Work smarter and harder (grit + sophistication)

We couple the grit of a startup with a strategic and sophisticated approach to marketing, challenging ourselves to continually improve our craft.

Aim for authentic and meaningful connections

We obsess over the best way to drive the customer/product connection . . . but we also focus on creating meaningful connections — and relationships — with our clients.

Make time for a little (or a lot of) fun

We take our work seriously — but we manage to have a little fun along the way. We believe that happiness and fulfillment fuels workplace performance.

Create an inclusive and equitable culture

We celebrate differences in identity, experience, knowledge, capabilities, and self-expression, recognizing their power to drive creativity and innovation.

Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin?

Nick Ring | TDR Partner

If The Digital Ring was an animal, what would it be and why?

If we were an animal, I’d say we’d be a lion. We’re strong (strong company, strong team, strong base of knowledge). We’re protective (our Crew is like our family and we protect our clients and want only the best for them). We’re smart and strategic (we have to be smart to outwit the competition, and strategy is part of the game... we need it for survival).

Matt Kemp
Matt Kemp | TDR Partner

Choose a movie title for the story of The Digital Ring...

Field of Dreams. Lame I know…but, it is true. Working with my brother and Nick feels like a dream (most of the time). If we build it, they will come…clients and employees.

Mason Kemp
Mason Kemp | TDR Partner

The Digital Ring just transformed into a food of your choosing, what would it be and why?

Stir Fry. Combination of many food groups and flavors. Just like no day is the same at TDR, neither is making stir fry when making it the second or third time.

Our commitment to diversity, equity
& inclusion

We’re on a journey to create, nurture, and sustain an inclusive and equitable culture that celebrates and recognizes diversity as a catalyst for creativity and innovation. We understand that embracing individual differences in identity, experience, knowledge, capabilities, and self-expression directly and positively impact our employees’ work experience, the quality of our work, and our company’s achievements.

In 2020, we formed an internal committee responsible for guiding the TDR crew on our DEI journey. Through education, training, and community engagement, we pledge a continued commitment to establishing a work environment with diversity, equity, and inclusion at its core.
