Ripple Marketing is anything but a traditional Ad Agency. We may not wear suites to work or have sizable egos, but we do create stellar ideas; ideas that go to work for your company.

Listening to our clients specific needs, hearing what individuals are saying about their business, researching the market and customizing a marketing plan of brand building and ROI. What makes us unique? Well lets be honest, what doesn't make us unique.

My name is Doug Wire. I’m a motion graphics artist and a 3D generalist currently based in South Dakota. I worked professionally for Daktronics Creative Services from 2004 – 2013. I worked as a student for about 2 years while getting my Computer Graphics BS at DSU in Madison SD. They decided to bring me on full time when I graduated. I particularly enjoyed the job because of the variety of styles and sign sizes I got to create content for. I’ve designed content for everything from 1080i video to 13200x32px LED ribbons displays. I’ve been blessed with the opportunity create content for many major and minor league teams as well as college sports, and commercial venues.
A South Dakota native and 20 year veteran of the film and video production industry, Jeff brings a wealth of knowledge, expertise and passion to every project he is a part of. His resume includes a wide variety of production roles, from director to grip, and everything in between.
Jeff's strength and love lies in the role of Director of Photography. Jeff possesses strong visual and lighting skills and knows the grip truck like the back of his hand (as he should...he built it.) He has directed and shot over 100 award winning spots over the years.
When Jeff is not rolling film, he is an avid fisherman, enjoys camping and plays guitar...quite badly... but he enjoys it. Jeff is also a music lover and likes long walks at sunset and bubble baths. But that's another story.
