Welcome to Fat Dog! My name is Rhonda Negard, graphic designer, photographer, and dog lover.

I am a communications and graphic design professional with extensive experience in associations, insurance, financial services, and construction industries and a BA and MA in communications.

I am friendly and work with a client-focused, collaborative attitude. I manage relationships with vendors and clients at all levels of management. My style of management and creative problem-solving skills makes for a fun and proactive creative environment.

  • Logo / Brand Design

    Logos are a critical aspect of business marketing. As the company’s major graphical representation, a logo anchors a company’s brand and becomes the single most visible manifestation of the company within the target market. For this reason, a well-designed logo is an essential part of any company’s overall marketing strategy. Let Fat Dog translate your message into a beautiful and effective logo.

  • Graphic Design

    Graphic design done by professionals who are creative and passionate about getting your unique message to your target audience to create a brand position in the marketplace is one of the most important investments you need to make for your business. Graphic design drives advertising and attracts us to brands. Design is present everywhere — be it newspaper, magazines, packaging, branding, websites, posters, books, signage. It gives your company a visual representation. Just by looking at it you have a feeling and mental position in mind for the product or service.

  • Photography

    Build your confidence and learn to feel comfortable in front the camera with or without makeup and makeovers. More than a photograph, we will complete an inner transformation. You’ll learn how to look great in any photo regardless of your wardrobe, hair, and makeup. A photograph is a timeless asset that grows in meaning and value as time passes. Let Rhonda and Fat Dog Creatives capture moments that will transform the rest of your life.

I worked with Rhonda in a previous life wherein she was responsible for producing first rate graphics for proposals and presentations. I subsequently went to Rhonda when I had my own consultancy business and she understood my “image” and created for me a wonderful company image/logo. I intend and look fwd to using Rhonda again, she is the best.

This is not my first attempt at a new service, but I want to give it my greatest effort. My initial thoughts of a marketing strategy included Rhonda, a person who understands how insane starting a marketing campaign can be. Not only does she give me original designs and concepts, but her marketing counsel is invaluable. She helps to remind me that my services are valuable and meaningful to others. Thank you so much!

Rhonda was great to work with! She helped facilitate a process that is extremely important for every business owner. I would even call her an alchemist. She was able to take my ideas, sketches, and vision and turn it into a logo that I will continue to use for years to come! What’s more is that people are inspired by just looking at the logo. That’s all I could have ever wanted. Highly recommended!
