Here at the SF Egotist, we're all about celebrating the people who make our fine creative city even better. So we partnered with our good friends at AD2SF to identify and recognize San Francisco's greatest young advertising and marketing talent - the 32 Under 32.
We put out a call for you to nominate anyone who was truly exemplary - and there were certainly no shortage of entrants, which made our job of judging all the tougher and made the honor of being selected even greater. While everyone who was chosen excelled at their jobs, most also have given back even more - by volunteering, creating interesting side projects or putting to good use a special skill or talent.
Once a day, starting tomorrow, we'll be posting interviews with each of the winners. So keep an eye out for that and learn more about these exceptional folks.
So without further adieu, and in alphabetical order, here are the best our city has to offer.
