Ever Gonzalez

Director, Business Development + Brand Strategy

As an award-winning designer, self-proclaimed philomath, and brand strategist, Ever is the brains behind AOA’s brand operations. While business development and brand initiative work is the territory that Ever calls home, she wears a lot of hats at AOA – sometimes, they’re even shaped like mouse ears. From client relations to creative presentation design, Ever is a jack-of-all-advertising-trades across the entertainment industry.

For over 10 years, Ever has been a vital mediator between the client and the design team. Her knowledge and understanding of the built environment, coupled with her passion for brand strategy, design, and the themed entertainment industry allows for her to create content and experiences that take ideas and create real-world experiences. Her projects include Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, the Royal Commission for Riyadh City’s Diplomatic Quarter, Mountain Mile at Pigeon Forge, and Beatrix Restaurant at Disney Springs. Among the many projects Ever has helped bring to life, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge remains her favorite – who else can say they assembled the pitch deck for the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy?

Above all else, Ever is critical in developing deep client relationships, driving creative processes, and leveraging her design-focused thinking to develop and execute brand strategies. She knows how to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary in all things theme park design on Disney projects, Universal Studios projects, and so much more.

If her dazzling project list and endless skills weren’t enough, Ever also holds several awards from various advertising agencies across the United States. She holds the Gold Hermes Creative Award for her work on Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Gold MarCom Award for her work with Morris Architecture, Silver American Advertising Award for her work with FAIRWAYS, and several other accolades for her work in marketing and communications. Whether it’s internal communication or creating a fantastic deck for a new client, Ever has an eye for design and an ear for effective communication.

Ever brings a strategic mind and creative eye to boost the AOA brand forward. There’s just no other company that she’d rather call home.
