We’re still working on the ability for humans to ascend into the heavens whilst wearing a cape. We’ll trust you with our secret identities…

If you’re looking for a company that actually enjoys explaining things and prefers establishing a long-term relationship…we’re your firm.
Your logo is the nucleus of your entity. Consistency is everything and having a successful, memorable, and professional logo on all of your collaterals is imperative. Strong foundations are important in every situation including the perspective of your corporate identity. The dialogue of your logo is typically the first step in planning your communication strategy.
Design is the key to didactic communication and at its core is the quickest and easiest form of communication. Whether it’s in entertainment, print or online, graphic design is everywhere.
How you communicate is just as easy as when and where you do so. RHD can collaborate to ensure you’re successful in promoting your product and/or service. Word of mouth is still the best form of marketing and we can assist in communicating your endeavors. We offer plenty of experience in print, web, social media and email marketing.
One photo or a thousand words. We can help with both but a dramatic, powerful and unique image can indeed tell your story. We have the gear, the eyes, and would love to expose your greatness.
Explaining what’s happening is imperative and will definitely help in getting your message to the public. Approach, however, is where many can miss the mark. Let’s get you on target.
Advertising has changed with the advent of social media. Incredibly, many people receive their news, suggestions, and product choices through social media and their collection of online opinions. We can shape your message and tell your story via the myriad social media platforms.
Our clients are or become our friends and since that is the case the enjoyment of succeeding along with our friends is the cherry on top of our profession.
The power of video is unmistakeable. Nothing communicates the various forms of media and experience quite like visual motion. We have an incredible and talented team that can assist with dynamic video. Telling stories through dramatic video is possible with state-of-the-art camera equipment and even drone aerial footage.
Web Design, Development & IT
Websites are more important now than ever before…as is the need for people to find your site via search engine optimization (SEO) and keyword search. Yes, social media can help promote you but relying on only those companies is a mistake. You can control all of your messaging and directly target people with well designed and developed website. Also, we can assist with those troubling IT issues so that you don’t have to suffer those time-consuming headaches.
Rocky Hayes Design is proud to be a member of these organizations:

Why we are different
Growing up on a ranch in South Dakota, Rocky has a work ethic to match. With our experience of travel and projects, we have gained a much more universal perspective.
These capabilities are then brought to our clients where they learn from us and this is gleefully reciprocated.

He is a first class, top shelf operation. And oh yeah, he’s one great guy. Thank you Rocky Hayes!”

“I’ve had the honor to work with Rocky Hayes Design when I first began my speaking and professional career. I call him “Rock”.

I owe my success and my online presence to him. I highly recommend working with Rock for your next business venture.”

Moreover, Rocky made sure that I had all the tools necessary to implement a complete marketing plan that includes print and social media.

I recommend Rocky 1,000%! He has done great work for me and has also developed into a true friend along the way.”
“When I contacted Rocky Hayes Design, I was a 25-year-old running against an experienced legislator for a state senate seat. The graphic design work Rocky did in my handout was unlike anything else any of my fellow candidates had ever seen. It ushered in a new day in legislative literature pieces and immediately lent credibility and professionalism to my campaign.
We followed with some amazing print ads for local newspapers that seemed to jump off the page compared with the other mundane ads on the page. The one-two punch Rocky provided was integral to my successful campaign as I became the youngest-ever Senator in my state’s history.
I’ve utilized Rocky’s services since and have recommended him to allies, and his work has continued to evolve with the changing times. Rocky is the best!”

“Our experience working with Rocky for our photography shoot was easy and light. He listened to what we wanted, what we didn’t want, and looked at the area we wanted beforehand.
He was careful to ask for movement here or there without being too present so that our family felt natural and not like we were on a stage which means that the hardest part about working with Rocky…deciding among all of the amazing options!
Rocky was deciding which ones were our favorite. His eye for detail, his talent, and his quick turnaround all added to the positive experience.”
