Navigating beyond the conventional, we thrive on the power of inclusivity, where a spectrum of perspectives converges to redefine possibilities.

We’re a diverse team and purposely hire from inside and outside the industry to ensure our thinking comes from diverse places. This includes
an English teacher, magazine editor and postman who completed AWARD School. A third of us have non-anglo-centric backgrounds and we’re proud to have an almost equal gender split.

Meet our Senior Team

Founder & CEO

After working at WPP in the UK, 14 years ago, Katie joined Magnum & Co as an Account Manager before becoming a shareholder and eventually buying 100% of the agency, relaunching it as Hopeful Monsters in early 2023.

Creative Partner

Having worked in creative (Ogilvy), media (Naked), digital (Razorfish) and PR (Edelman) agencies, Carl's a truly integrated specialist who doesn’t remotely care where ideas live, as long as they’re good and they work.

Strategy Director

With origins in social and digital, Alycia understands how ideas can spread. She spends her time understanding the cultural problem of a brief so that the output (idea and execution) will be sure to get the attention of those it's intended for.

Senior Business Director

Tegan has led agency teams at Ogilvy and Ketchum, and been an APAC regional lead on the inside at entertainment powerhouse Activision Blizzard, so understands how to navigate complex organisational challenges to deliver results.

Business Director

Sophie is a senior advertising and marketing professional passionate about delivering effective and engaging advertising solutions. With ten years of experience in client service, Sophie has an impressive history working across numerous leading agencies and brands.

We know this working in an agency, coming up with ideas and making them happen gig isn’t easy, but if we’re gonna do it, we may as well give it 100 percent.

But when you work with us, we make a commitment to look after you, both personally and professionally. We aren’t all born Hopeful Monsters, so we invest heavily in developing our people into happy, healthy, hungry monsters through one of the most innovative development programs in the industry. If you’re up for the challenge drop us a note. Hint, imaginative hellos get noticed.
