The Creation Story

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 floor sloped so much that all the chairs ran toward 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 us for our meetings. In memory of these roots, the founders of the company are still known as the “Attic Fourteen”.

Hogarth and Pencils of Promise

Hogarth is pleased to announce its partnership with charity Pencils of Promise – a new educational charity that aims to build schools, train teachers and fund scholarships in Ghana, Guatemala, Laos and Nicaragua, with the aim to provide opportunities and hope to children in these countries.


Founded in 2008, Pencils of Promise is trying to create a better world through education, supporting sustainable growth in developing nations. With over 300 schools built and 31,000 students educated under their programme to date, Pencils of Promise has already affected hundreds of thousands of lives.

Hogarth aims to raise $25,000 in 2015 in order to build a school. This will be a symbol of our lasting commitment to charity and education in line with our namesake, William Hogarth, and with our key values. Events are planned throughout the year across Hogarth offices worldwide. To find out more about Pencils of Promise, information is provided in the link here.
