Yep, we’re proud of our diverse clientele (friends) and are humbled by their praise. Here’s a few thoughts from these stellar professionals…

“I have worked with Rocky on several projects over the years and he is an absolute pro. A strong communicator with an infectious passion for his craft, he has a ‘get to yes’ attitude that makes every project a success. On top of that, he’s just a great guy! I’m thankful to have someone of his caliber in my corner.”

Paul TenHaken

Mayor, City of Sioux Falls

“I have known Rocky for nearly three decades, first meeting him in college. I have been fortunate enough to reconnect more closely with him in both personal and professional capacities in recent years through my with the The Compass Center. I found the same bright, engaging, caring and compassionate person I had first met more than 20 years prior, but now with two decades of entrepreneurial and lief experience adding even more depth to his character and wisdom.

Rocky has worked with our nonprofit to produce client impact videos which help tell the human story of the services we provide. The work he has produced has been extremely effective and is always met with rave reviews by our stakeholders. I would be east to chalk up these successes to the work of a gifted filmmaker, but Rocky’s work goes deeper that that. Rocky is a master storyteller. He uses his skill with film, words, and other artistic media to unearth the emotion that lies within the human experience.”

Jason Lemke, MSEd, CFRE

Chief Development Officer, The Compass Center

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

“As I have explained to Rocky over the years, his consulting, design, support and expertise made it possible to have the political successes I have achieved for 20 years.

Jim Runestad

Unlike many designers who are too much into the “art” of their work, Rocky’s results represent the best in information design that people can actually follow and understand. If you’re looking for clear-cut design without all the bull, give Rocky a call. You’ll be glad you did.”

“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!”

Brock Greenfield

Starting a new business is stressful and you took some of that stress away. Working with you is simple and easy, and it was comforting knowing that you were always a phone call, email and text away! I would highly recommend you to anyone and would gladly be a reference for you going forward. I look forward to working with you as we grow our business!”

“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.”

I have been particularly impressed by Rocky’s ability to establish strong working relationships with me and on behalf of clients and other vendors even though he is in another state and our work occurs entirely by phone and over the internet. Local vendors I use for production have commented that the quality of production-ready content is of high quality and speeds the production processes because no final corrections or conversions are necessary.

As a colleague, Rocky is oriented to solving problems and providing the most effective expression of the client’s communications objectives. He is very reliable and easy to work with. I highly recommend Rocky Hayes as a colleague and as a professional.”
