Branding Aficionados

Hailing from Sunny San Diego, we are a team of foodies, adventurers, and creatives that believe in sugar, spice, and everything.. fine! Fine dining, fine living, and of course, fine coffee! Behind every successful creative is a substantial amount of coffee. A typical day consists of either sipping coffee in a mug while watching social media webinars, drinking a latte in a to-go cup while exploring San Diego, meeting up with clients, or sitting down at a coffee shop, savoring an espresso while getting our grind on. In the black and white world of marketing, we aim to bring technicolor to all our projects. We are risk-takers, sometimes trouble-makers, that love to push the rules to create memorable, brand experiences. We are branding nerds who love to have fun by staying on top of advertising trends, constantly implementing new techniques that erupt in this ever evolving digital age.  Grab a cup of coffee and join our empire.

Ashley Graham

CEO & Creative Director

Never underestimate the power of coffee and a woman with a vision of intention.
 
It all started with an espresso machine and a dream. Coffee breaks are essential for sharing creative ideas and inspiration, discussing trends and news, spending quality time in good company, and of course, enjoying the delicious flavors and aromas of coffee. To Ashley Graham, coffee is more than a drink – it is a lifestyle.
 
Ashley Graham is the founder and creative director of Brandesso, a modern-day branding and marketing agency that infuses brand authority through caffeinated strategies and communications. To Brandesso, every brand has a unique story. Their creative process is to filter the raw, unique details of a brand and incorporate a well rounded methodology and strategy that brews the brand to stand out in their industry as an authoritative figure.
 
Within the competitive landscape of agencies around the world, Ashley’s goal for Brandesso is to rise to the top in facilitating business operations and maintaining client relationships. Brandesso is on a mission to be the leading example of breaking the disconnect and cycle of the cut-throat agency dynamic; to create a more holistic and cohesive approach to client relationships and internal culture, to increase client/employee retention and longevity.
 
Known as a “Jill of all trades”, Ashley Graham is a serial entrepreneur who channels her passions, talents, and personal values to make a difference in the creative space.

Ashley Graham is the epitome of a girl boss, defying expectations and trumping the negativity that tries to hinder her from achieving her dreams. You can find Ashley driving around in her convertible Fiat sipping on coffee made from love with her Nespresso machine, heading to client meetings, influencer events, or frolicking to a new bar or restaurant. Ashley owes her inspiration for success to her transparent personality, long car or plane rides, and books by authors who win at life.

A cup of coffee a day keeps the doctor away… and also makes things happen. Well, to Nathan Yick, Digital Marketing Specialist of Brandesso, creativity, and success come from within and also from a couple cups of cold brew. 

 
Originating from the Bay Area, our digital marketer came to San Diego in 2014 to pursue a degree in Advertising and French at SDSU. During his time, Nathan became involved with several entrepreneurial initiatives – co-founding an all natural sunscreen company called Soul Spot Sunscreen. After many ups and downs during its operation, he became interested in pursuing a career in digital marketing.
 
Filled with experience and passion for paid media, analytics, and inbound marketing, Nathan joined Brandesso in June 2018 as a creative intern, and the rest was history. If he is not compiling data reports and digital marketing strategies, you can find Nathan rock climbing or jamming out in his garage.
