Happy Monday is Kimberly Coles, an award-winning Creative Director, Graphic Designer, User Experience Designer, UX Designer, Web Designer, and Illustrator with more than 25 years of advertising and marketing experience. Almost 10 years ago, I started Happy Monday, LLC., a creative firm specializing in branding, UX design, responsive web design, print design, and illustration. I am known for being strategic and super efficient.

My work has been informed by experiences in print, television, direct, outdoor, tradeshow, brand identity systems, packaging, user experience, web, and interactive. I have been on both the client and agency sides leading multi-disciplinary teams and working with the strategic and creative process in developing brands across a variety of digital and traditional mediums. I also have previous experience growing interactive teams and development processes from the ground up at traditional and interactive advertising agencies. I know what it takes to get the right team in place.


I have worked with numerous local, national and international clients in various industries, such as Chase Freedom, Mitsubishi, Indiana University, and Delta Faucet Company to name a few. I have collaborated with more than 20 full-service agencies across the U.S. in cities such as Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago, New York, Cleveland, Austin, Tuscon, Louisville, Indianapolis, etc.

For larger projects, I have a large network of outsource account managers, designers, developers, search marketers, and copywriters that I bring onboard for to get projects done on time and on budget.
