  • Overview

    Hogarth opened for business in 2008 in an attic room above a shop near London's Carnaby Street. Our Internet connection came from a cable slung out of a window and the floors sloped so much that all the chairs ran towards one corner. Eventually we had fourteen people working in that room. This made it so full that we had to use the Brazilian coffee shop opposite for our meetings. In memory of these roots the founders of the company are still known as the "Attic Fourteen".

     

    Hogarth Worldwide (Part of WPP) leads the way in the production of TV, digital and print campaigns for some of the world’s most talked about brands. We’re based in London with many other global offices, and we’re growing. Quickly. In fact, we’re the industry’s fastest growing company. In 2008 there were 14 talented people pushing us forward. Now there are nearly 3,000 across the globe. Right now, Hogarth is an exciting place to be, and it’s only going to get better.
