Brian Hopson

Creative Director

With 15 years at traditional and experiential agencies, Brian brings a mix of concepting, copywriting and brand strategy to his work. He’s a creative director for the CPG team and is also a co-practice lead for Brighton’s copywriters. Ask him what he likes most about his job and the answer will always be the same: Getting to solve business problems with creativity and working with some exceptionally talented people. Having studied fiction writing at Columbia College Chicago, Brian is relentlessly focused on engaging audiences through storytelling and surgically-crafted messages. After creating sponsorship activations for Verizon Wireless, Brian moved on to full-service agencies where he’s done a wide range of work for clients like Pampers, Royal Canin, Eukanuba, CRAVE, Charter, Pictsweet Farms, JBL, Furminator, Germ-X, Cosi restaurants, the American Marketing Association and MilliporeSigma.

Outside of Brighton, you can find Brian playing questionable amounts of Nintendo with his wife and kids, working on some kind of DIY project in the garage or putting another log on a bonfire.
