Liz is a copywriter at LaneTerralever in Phoenix. Her new campaign for Visit Phoenix is both “unlike anything they’ve ever done before” and a breakout campaign for Liz. What’s more fun than that? Creating a project that pushes a client and is great for the portfolio? Nothing. Nothing’s more fun.

Evan just graduated from Chicago Portfolio School (big congrats!), and spent time before that time in the Second City writing program. Always fun to see portfolios coming right out of school—when the client and creative can be anything. Like Evan’s Sugar In The Raw campaign. A whole new spin on “Come give Grandma some sugar.” Goodness.

Sharath is a copywriter at Creature in Seattle. Lots of hilariousness on his site, including projects for Oberto Beef Jerky, Microsoft Surface, and a piece for Timothy McSweeney’s Internet Tendency. MC wonders: has the tweet/social media post become the new “headline” for copywriters? Hmm …

Stephanie Taubin, Director of Creative Services at Brand Content in Boston, is on the hunt for a copywriter and a junior CW/AD team. From Stephanie: “We’re looking for smart people who create the kind of work that others wish they had. Juniors can be fresh out of ad school with a great portfolio. The other copywriter should have a year or two experience. You’ll work on everything from broadcast to print, digital to social with opportunities to work on non-profit and new business.
- A wide-ranging portfolio with solid writing or design skills and big ideas across multiple mediums
- Comfortable presenting work and selling the idea through
- Desire to do great work, win awards and grow the agency
- Hungry to learn and hungry in general – (we have bagels on Fridays and company lunch on Wednesdays)
Brand Content is a small, independent agency creating award-winning work for clients like Baileys Coffee Creamers, Monster.com, Hood and Nantucket Film Festival. We have nice people, hot coffee and cold beer. If that matters to you, let’s talk.”

Once again proving MC’s theory that comedy, drumming and/or surfing make great copywriters.

Chad Brophy, copywriter/ACD at Tattoo Projects in Charlotte, NC, is on the hunt for a copywriter with social media skills. From Chad: “Tattoo Projects wants a copywriter that geeks out writing for social media. Not a social media enthusiast that thinks they can write. We know that sounds a touch pretentious, but it’s an important difference. If you’re a copywriter nodding your head in agreement, please keep reading.
We want a twisted sense of humor that can also stay organized.
We want someone who can write in multiple brand voices without inserting theirs.
We want a writer who can manipulate trends and current events to our brands’ advantage, not just regurgitate memes.
We want a writer who understands the career and portfolio value of writing for National, Super Regional, and Start-Up accounts.
We want a writer who will gleefully throw down on print, ambient, and television projects.
- Minimum 1-year agency experience.
- A portfolio that shows you get it, bonus points if it evokes jealousy.
- A working knowledge of social media management tools.
About Tattoo Projects:
We are a creative agency that leaves indelible impressions.
We are forward-looking-advertising-fanatics with an in-house photography studio, a postproduction department, and a Small Agency of the Year award.
We work on National, Super Regional, and Start-Up clients.
We overuse the word “we”.
100% paid health and dental.
Free downtown parking.
