Monique Kaplan


Creative Director MADE agency Cape Town, South Africa


Everybody always writes nice things about themselves in the third person. So in an attempt to sound the least bit narcissistic, I’ve asked someone else to write my bio for me. My mom: 

I have been asked to share my thoughts about my daughter, Monique Kaplan, who is a Creative Director (Art Director) with 13 years of Industry experience. 

Monique is a passionate creative who thrives on making excellent work and strives to give her very best. Her sense of humor, work ethic, chutzpah, wit and passion has stood her in good stead. 

Monique also enjoys mentoring. Her skill set extends way beyond photoshop and includes great oratory skills and excellent persuasiveness which has contributed to her high number of pitch wins.

 Since Monique has been in industry, she has been given the opportunity to work abroad in various countries on brands like Volkswagen, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Dove, Coca Cola and Nike and has been awarded in South Africa and internationally.

I love and admire my daughter and I am so proud to be her mom.
