the face behind the brand
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, designing brand identities, creating gorgeous photography and helping businesses get started with digital marketing.
I've 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, I've helped raise millions of dollars for regional and national organizations, defeated dangerous state-wide legislation, worked side-by-side with high-profile and celebrity clients, designed emails that have reached across the globe, 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.
