“Our remit with Converse globally and locally continues to grow, so we’ve invested in a bigger team that deeply understands the culture of the brand and how best to engage and connect with the thousands of grassroots creatives we interact with on a daily basis.”

The agency’s work with Converse sees them manage the brand’s All Stars program – an idea developed by Magnum that involves the direction and management of the program across 33 different countries involving 2,500 creatives globally. The program was recognised in Fast Company’s round up of the ten most innovative brands in 2021.

As the agency continues to grow, it is recruiting for another two roles to work predominantly on the Converse account, alongside four more new roles.

Magnum & Co’s current clients include Converse, Goodman Fielder, RSPCA NSW, GoDaddy, Peters Ice Cream, Pizza Hut, Square Enix, Arcadian Organic and
