We are a creative design and digital marketing studio with a passion for helping businesses make authentic connections with their ideal audiences through strategic branding and outstanding content.
Gretchen has made a name for herself in San Diego as the premier branding shop.
While Gretchen’s clientele encompasses all ages and industries, she has found her niche in helping female millennial business owners bring their visions to life. Gretchen is a favorite among wedding & event planners, photographers, salons, spas, estheticians, hair stylists, makeup artists, lash & brow artists, nutritionists, fitness experts, and fashion boutiques. She has a unique talent for merging feminine with professional.
Gretchen is also an expert at branding restaurants. Having waited tables in high school and college, designing for restaurants came naturally. Shortly after leaving San Diego Magazine in 2015, Gretchen was hired by San Diego restaurateur Mark Oliver to design the brand identity for Pueblo Modern Baja Coastal in Pacific Beach. Shortly after, she was sought out by the Busalacchi family to rebrand Po Pazzo into a modern Sicilian concept, Barbusa, in the heart of San Diego's trendiest restaurant hub, Little Italy. Around the same time, Gretchen collaborated with Elevated Grp to develop the brand identity for Harvest by the Patio in East Village, and Wokou Ramen in Carmel Valley. In 2017, Gretchen collaborated with nightlife industry gurus Shane Brennan and Mike Vizcarra to develop her most expansive branding project to date, the massive two story New York-inspired Queensborough Cocktail Lounge in downtown San Diego’s Gaslamp District.
In 2018, Gretchen hired Max Pete as Director of Marketing. The studio now proudly offers digital marketing and advertising, as well as social media and photography services.
"If I were to describe my branding process in one word, it would be collaborative. Working together towards a common goal is essential in order to create an identity that truly represents each client; something they will use for years to come. I ask a lot of questions, and the project isn't done until they are completely in love."
– Gretchen Kamp, CEO
"Gretchen will elevate any brand to the next level. As a business targeting millennial female business owners, having a modern fresh brand image online was something really important to me. She completely understood me right from the beginning and I really enjoyed collaborating with her."
