We're the Creative Co-op,
a coworking space...

with a creative twist


welcome to the creative co-op!

The Creative Co-op is a space where cream of the crop talent comes together under one umbrella. Creative talents in the areas of advertising and marketing, design, photography, videography, social media, business coaching, corporate training, leadership development, event planning and web development all come together independently at the same address. Some might call us a collaboration of creative awesomeness.

We bounce ideas, ignite the creative spark and lend our points of view. And even crack open a few cola’s together to celebrate a job well done.

We’re the Creative Co-op – a co-working space with a creative twist located in downtown Sioux Falls. Learn how we come together to help your business be even better.

"Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow know what you truely want to become." ~Steve Jobs

Hi, my name is Misten Langenfeld, I'm the owner of Ripple Marketing- a full service marketing and advertising firm located within the Creative Co-op in downtown Sioux Falls. I bring over 10 years of experience in the marketing and advertising world to the table. I spearhead each and every project that my clients bring to me, formulating a targeted media plan and creating an engaging creative campaign that gets results.

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. We are in the business of listening. Listening to our client's 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 let's be honest, what doesn't make us unique.

"The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership."
- Harvey S. Firestone

Elev8 Coaching is a learning and development company that exists to equip all leaders in their pursuit of leadership and coaching excellence. We accomplish this through interactive workshops, group and individual coaching sessions, and corporate training initiatives.

We believe the traditional training method of sitting in a classroom and listening to the trainer doesn’t cut it. We consider every opportunity from a hybrid-learning perspective and create a highly interactive environment. To stay focused on how the topic translates into the day-to-day responsibilities of the learner, we ask two questions: 1) how will learning be sustained? and 2) how will learners be held accountable? Elev8 Coaching programs are built with execution and results in mind.

At first glance, co-founders Lisa Brouwer and Paul Ritter, appear to be an unlikely pair. Lisa has twenty years of sales and leadership experience in corporate America and Paul has 20 years of experience as a counselor and trainer. Lisa is driven by results and Paul is driven by connections. We believe it’s these differences that make us a dynamic duo.

Elev8 Coaching also hosts Leadercast Sioux Falls, a one-day leadership experience broadcast live from Atlanta, GA and simulcast to hundreds of locations around the world. You’re also invited to a free monthly training called Elev8 Monthly. Connect with others from the business community for a unique leadership learning experience.

If you want to create a more collaborative culture within your organization or engage your team to work better together, the coaches at Elev8 Coaching can help you reach your leadership summit.
