About R. Haag Designs
Gain some insight…
Robert Haag knew from an early age that he didn’t want to be just a regular 9 to 5’er all while answering to somebody of a higher authority. At the age of 16 after working for Publix for 2 years, he quit and started a boat and car detailing company that easily funded the lifestyle of a high school teenager. With accounts stemming mainly from friends and family, he decided to put his schooling to use by designing and printing flyers and business cards to hand out to the local community. Once a solid clientele list was built, Robert realized the money in advertising and started venturing into other aspects of marketing. His next approach was door hangers — yes, those annoying clear plastic packets filled with your neighborhood’s surrounding businesses and their HOT NEW DEALS!
After cold-calling and visiting almost every business from Hillsboro Boulevard to Commercial Boulevard and east of I-95 Robert finally had a list of businesses willing to spend their money on door-to-door advertising. It was just a matter of time before social media really took off and he was offering those same businesses his strategy for digital and social media marketing. After high school, Robert was torn between going to school and starting his own business. While not letting much time pass, he did both. R. Haag Designs was founded in the summer of 2008 shortly after he graduated from Pompano Beach High School. He also decided to attend Palm Beach Community College in the meantime.
With business growing exponentially, Robert decided to take time off from school to pursue his dream of being a legitimate business owner. He started free-lancing his design work for several marketing companies throughout South Florida all while building his own clientele list. Once things hit a consistent basis, Robert started implementing more services into his business. In 2014, Robert started printing all types of stationery as well as clothing and apparel!

“You can make mistakes, but you aren’t a failure until you start blaming others for those mistakes. When you blame others you are trying to excuse yourself. When you make excuses you can’t properly evaluate yourself. Without proper self-evaluation, failure is inevitable.” – Coach John Wooden
