We made the Inc. 5000, a list of the fastest-growing private companies in the US! We ranked #571 in the nation and #6 in Wisconsin. In honor of the occasion, we shared a few tips & tricks we’ve learned over the past 4+ years. Check ’em out!

Pop the champagne – we were just named a Company of the Year in the Advertising, Marketing & PR category at the Stevie Awards! Incredible news as we enter National Small Business Week (i.e. the BEST week of the year).


Our third year at the ADDY Awards and eight more ADDYs to our name! We won for our web design and dev work for clients Henry Vilas Zoo and Milio’s Sandwiches. We also took home a few ADDYs for our own website!


Can you believe it – we’re FOUR! As we enter our fourth year in business, we can’t help but feel immensely #blessed for the clients that entrust their digital presence to us. Just check out all those websites and logos…




We’ve had a productive year, winning the Dane County Small Business Award, Madison Magazine’s Best Places to Work Award, and a Dream Big Award from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce!

We launched our 100th client website! A few months after our 3rd birthday, our website count hit the big 1-0-0. Check out our blog detailing this momentous occasion.


We launched our new website! And, well, you’re lookin’ at it.


14 Addy Awards AND a Judge’s Choice! The 2018 Addy Awards were pretty good to us once again. For the second year in a row, we were recognized for the creativity and quality of our work: the result of many late nights, countless brainstorming sessions, and a fair amount of blood, sweat, and tears.

We were named a “Top Agency in Madison” for the second year in a row! The team at Expertise once again recognized our high-quality work and dedication to our clients. We couldn’t be more proud!


We’ve managed social media for over 4 million fans! We think our clients are pretty awesome, and apparently everybody else does too. Social media has a special place in our hearts and we are thrilled to create content that serves so many people.


Madison Magazine names TDR one of the area’s “Best Places to Work”! (No, we didn’t pay them to say that.) The TDR crew couldn’t agree more and lists a collaborative, supportive, and fun office environment as one of their favorite things about working here.

We launched our 50th website! Kudos to our team and to the amazing clients that trust us with their brand’s online presence.


We put in a strong showing at the 2017 ADDY Awards! The American Advertising Federation awarded 17 local ADDY awards to The Digital Ring. This was the first year we were eligible to submit our work – we were beyond thrilled by the industry recognition!


Check out our new digs! The whole team came together to give our little office a face lift. Take a look at the final result!

TDR slayed the Mannequin Challenge! We guarantee this is the only time you’ll find us standing still… enjoy it.



We moved! With growth comes inevitable change. We didn’t expect a move to happen so quickly, but we were SO excited to be in the position of needing more space to accommodate a growing TDR fam. Hello new office!


The world was forever changed… or at least we’d like to think so. On February 1, 2015, three guys with a big dream took a leap of faith and The Digital Ring officially opened for business.
