Our Story

Led by founder Bill Tikos, The Cool Hunter celebrates creativity in all of its modern manifestations. Since its inception in 2004, The Cool Hunter has remained one of the world’s most widely read design and pop-culture sites, a leading authority on all things creative and a truly global hub for what’s cool, thoughtful, innovative and original.

The Cool Hunter is not a trend-spotter, trend-watcher or trend predictor. We cover only what inspires us within such topics as design, architecture, lifestyle, art and travel. We remain relevant by staying outside of trends and fads — the constant, fickle shifts in taste and style.

The Cool Hunter digs deeper, finding tomorrow’s icons and classic phenomena. We are a prized reference point of choice for a global creative community. We value global relevance, not trends, channeling our discoveries to our worldwide audience.

The Cool Hunter is a natural fit for its readers – creative influencers who stay in the know and ahead of the curve. Global in outlook, culturally discerning, The Cool Hunter readers are connected, creatively aware, confident, stylish and sociable. They value architecture, design, style, music, fashion and entertainment. They work, play and travel internationally and bring with them distinguished tastes and a demanding appetite for high quality information, not senseless hype.

Currently, we connect with just over 1.8 million readers monthly, generating over 2.1 million page views. Our ever-growing subscriber list reads like a who’s who of the global media, communications, fashion, design, architecture and lifestyle industries. This, in turn, makes an appearance in The Cool Hunter a truly big deal.

In addition to publishing the journal, The Cool Hunter also represents a select group of artists including CJ Hendry (link to CJ page) whose now extremely successful career we launched on a global scale in 2014.

The Cool Hunter has also introduced several pop-up events, galleries and stores, including the online store and the now-permanent boutique in Melbourne, Australia. Other The Cool Hunter stores are opening globally.

We are also collaborating with several brands to create proprietary The Cool Hunter products.
