Gretchen Kamp Design is an upscale, boutique graphic design firm specializing in brand identity and logo design.

I am a formally trained graphic designer residing in beautiful San Diego, California. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design from San Diego State University in 2010. I have been freelancing since before I finished college. Although I have worked for several companies, self-employment was always the end goal. I now freelance full-time, since June 2015. I've never been happier.

I worked as an in-house graphic designer at San Diego Magazine and Exquisite Weddings Magazine from 2014-2015. My primary responsibility at San Diego Magazine was to design ads for the magazine's clients. I worked closely with the sales reps to create ads that their clients loved. After being there a couple months, I was responsible for the design/production of every single ad for all of their publications, including San Diego Magazine, Exquisite Weddings, San Diego Pets, and the Visitor Planning Guide. I also designed marketing materials for the company and was responsible for editorial design of some special sections.

Prior to that I worked as a graphic designer and project manager at SD Creative Media (SDCM). I was part of a small team that handled all the branding and creative design for various restaurants, bars, and nightclubs here in San Diego. Some notable clients of ours were Firehouse American Eatery + Lounge, Vin De Syrah, Analog Bar, Kettner Exchange, Rubicon Deli, Bar West, and Three Sisters Jewelry.

My first full-time job as a graphic designer was at Incubate Venture Consulting. I was the sole in-house graphic designer there and my job duties ranged from designing and developing brand identities from scratch to designing the front end of comlex websites. My bosses were entrepreneurs, so one week we would be working on creating a T-shirt company, and the next we were making real estate brochures. It was fun because it was always something new. Some of our larger projects were REOIndustryDirectory.com, ShortSaleAgentFinder.com, and Alpha Q Apparel.

I consider myself just as much an entrepreneur as a designer. My freelance adventure has led me to work with some incredible clients as well as designers. Recently I have had the pleasure of designing for Gordon Rush, Crosby Square, Embassy Suites, Fiat, AD Nightclub, and Pueblo Modern Baja Coastal, which will open in Spring of 2016. I feel extremely fortunate that I have been able to turn my life's passion into a career. I take pride in my ability to offer agency-level design with fast turnaround times at a fair rate.
