Hi, I’m Hilary Coles. I’m a designer and art director making useful, beautiful things in both digital and physical spaces. My expertise lies in branding, visual design, leading teams and mentoring designers. I'm currently senior designer at SmartBug Media.

When I'm not at my desk, I can be found stoking my inspiration in the mountains, usually in hiking boots, often on skis, sometimes floating on a giant rainbow pegasus on the lake.
