Our process outlines every step of the way so everyone is up-to-speed each week of the design process. At the wrap-up of each project, we provide you with a step-by-step guide to your marketing plan, printing your new designs and more. Bonus: Not only are we available to answer questions during the process, we also offer short- and long-term monthly marketing packages to keep your goals on track.

Oh, hi!

I’m Brenda Dalton, 835 Creative’s founder and creative director. Before I founded 835 Creative in 2015, I was a freelance creative for more than ten years, developing brand identities, creating gorgeous photography and helping businesses get started with digital marketing.

I earned a bachelor’s degree in communications and photographic arts from the University of Central Oklahoma and master’s degree in communications from the University of Texas at Austin. Hook ’em!

With key experience in the non-profit sector, I create strategies and marketing campaigns to meet your budget and give you the best return on your $$. If you know non-profit budgets, you know managing marketing on limited overhead is no small feat. Between you and I, this is something that translates beautifully for small businesses and creative entrepreneurs  🙌🏻

Over the course of my career in marketing, I’ve helped raise millions of dollars for regional and national organizations, defeated dangerous statewide legislation, worked side-by-side with high-profile and celebrity clients, designed emails that have reached thousands across the globe, and created, culled and scheduled a mind-boggling number – thousands upon thousands! – of social media posts reaching tens of millions of people.

I’ve been featured by great companies and outlets such as the Huffington Post, NPR, local NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox affiliates, Constant Contact, Feeding America, National Wildlife Federation, Austin American-Statesman, Tulsa World, The Oklahoman and many more, all in addition to the dozens of private clients that have graced 835 Creative’s little black book over the years.
