Steven Hey and Simon Koay

Wunderman Thompson has promoted Steven Hey and Simon Koay to creative director roles. The pair bring more than two decades of industry experience having started at Wunderman Thompson as senior creatives in 2018, and progressing to associate creative directors in 2021.

They’ve produced notable campaigns for Parkinson’s NSW, Rural Fire Service NSW, and Kellogg’s, and headed up pitch wins for RFS, Victorian Department of Justice, Sunbeam and Nikon. As creative leads on KitKat, Steve and Simon have helped the brand reclaim its position as Australia’s number one chocolate bar, had multiple campaigns adopted globally and had their recent ‘Have a Bite’ campaign pick up multiple trophies at both AWARD and Spikes.

“Steve & Si care for the work like very few people in this industry,” said João Braga, chief creative officer at Wunderman Thompson Australia.


“They get culture, they get the client’s business, and they won’t rest until they get to the smartest solution to any problem. I can’t think of better partners to help us build the most inspiring and innovative team in Australia.

“It’s an exciting time to be at Wunderman Thompson. The people and capabilities we have in place now can lead to making some fantastic work. We’re really looking forward to playing a role in leading the creative department under João’s vision and continuing to push the creative output for our bravest clients,” the pair said in a statement.
