You need to know you're working with a professional too.

Credentials, they're important. They don't always mean much on their own, but paired with a portfolio of results, you can get a better idea of just who you're working with and what you can expect to experience for yourself. That's why you're here; I get it.

Fat Dog Creatives & Rhonda Negard

Fat Dog Creatives is a boutique Agency founded in 2003. After marrying my soldier in 2009, I began that life of deployment, moves, and career in the backseat. I started small as a freelancer. Then, in 2015 I transitioned to learning what it means to be a full-time business owner, focusing on who I really want to serve, and diving further into design thinking.

In 2020, I added adjunct faculty at the Art Institute of San Antonio to my resume while doing client work. I help the next generation and those transitioning to a second career learn and refine technical skills and expand their creative horizons.

I am currently settled in San Antonio, TX, but frequently return to Seattle, WA and Bethesda, MD, where I still have friends and clients.

What you need is a strategy for your

brand and website.

Are your brand and website just taking up space, not working for you, and just plain lazy? Did you even know that your brand and website could be lazy? Did your designer/developer walk you through how to get them off of the dog bed and into the field working for you?

Are you willing to invest again for the same results as you level-up?

I will help you identify specific goals and develop a multi-level strategy around them. Your ideal clients will finally be able to digest and recall your brand expertise.

Testimonials From Real Clients

Testimonials From Real Clients

As creative myself, I know how important is it to work with someone whom you feel completely seen by. This is especially important when it comes to branding as your brand is essentially a graphical representation of you.

I knew when I hired Rhonda I was in safe and capable hands. I had seen her work with peers I respected. Yet, even so, I was blown away by her skills.

Rhonda proved not only to be an exceptional artist, but deeply intuitive. She captured my colors, my energy and my passion all in a single element. Each and every time I look at my logo ... I am inspired.

Good branding and good design produces results. It’s that simple. Rhonda, Fat Dog Creatives, took me through the rebranding process. Then, we collaborated on a redesign of my website, my bounce rate went down 10% — overnight. The time on site rose to well above 3 minutes, which means, visitors are spending more time on the page — actually reading and looking it over!

I have never felt so loved and empowered as I do right now. She understands my brand. She understands me. If you are on the fence about hiring Rhonda, get off the fence and get in touch with her.

Rhonda is the absolute best graphic designer/creative person. I've used Fat Dog Creatives for two completely different businesses and am always surprised at how far she exceeds my expectations. Rhonda takes your vision and brightens it - turning it into a dream come true. I truly feel like there is not anybody who could have brought my vision to life like she has. She does an incredible job. A dream to work with. So thankful to have known someone that recommended her to me. Don't look elsewhere, Fat Dog Creatives is #1.

Amazing combination of savvy business woman & insightful artist

Rhonda is an amazingly talented combination of savvy business woman and incredibly insightful artist. Her ability to create the collateral which helps companies share their message in multiple mediums is unmatched. She has the technical skills to ensure the design and content of both website and print convey the same feel.

Uncomplicate the Web: 7 Steps for Understanding the Web

Every industry has its own jargon. You know that speaking in jargon from your industry confuses and frustrates your clients. The web being only a few decades old and always changing, the industries involved in the web can barely keep up for themselves, which makes it hard for them to talk about the web in terms anyone can understand.
