A7D Creative Group’s founding partner and Creative Director, Anna Gamboa has had a massive impact on the branding and marketing of San Diego’s hospitality industry for 10 years. With two decades of experience as a graphic designer, Anna brings an abundance of knowledge and talent to A7D Creative Group and its clients. Anna has a keen ability to spotlight a brand’s greatest assets and create smart marketing programs that drive consumer behavior. She has successfully positioned restaurants, bars and events in the San Diego area, serving as a critical asset to San Diego’s continued growth and warm reputation in the hospitality arena. From revitalizing the branding of Gaslamp Quarter venue, Florent Restaurant and Lounge, to curating the social media plan for San Diego Beer Week, to her newest project- lifestyle brand, Miles + Pace, Anna’s amazing work is getting her noticed among her industry.
Aside from her hospitality industry clients, Anna also donates hours of time, talent, and effort into Explore North Park, a tourism marketing campaign, supported by a grant from the City of San Diego’s Economic Development Department. Since its beginning, Anna has been actively behind the rebrand of North Park as a San Diego destination. By volunteering her time and impressive work, North Park has now earned a reputation as a critical tourism asset in the region. This is just one of hundreds of campaigns that Anna has developed, further energizing San Diego’s tourism scene.
Hailing from the Midwest, this San Diego transplant has made her mark in the region and continues to shine light on her clients, with her employee relationships and the community. There’s no one else we would rather have nominated for Locale Magazine’s Favorite Female Difference Maker. And there’s no question that San Diego is all the better thanks to Anna’s dedication to her craft, community and our hospitality industry. We can’t wait to see what she’ll endure next! Now, go vote!
