Matt Everts

Joe

Matt is a copywriter/Associate “Big Kahuna” at FCB in Chicago. Going through his site, MC laughed out loud about a thousand times. So much hilarity. That includes the site itself, which is a menu for Gaylord Fine Indian Cuisine. Don’t miss his Joe Boxer Holiday spots (if you haven’t seen them already). Genius.

VCU Brandcenter Week – Larissa Cole

ballet

VCU Brandcenter Week on MC Thursday is Larissa Cole. So much to like in her portfolio. So many different voices—from the zaniness of Just Wink to the truthiness of Adultish Awardies to the beautifulness of Cincinnati Ballet. Also, don’t miss her About Me page In Pictures (have to click to it from About Me In Words). So fun.

VCU Brandcenter Week – Patrick Newman

spanx

VCU Brandcenter Week on MC continues with Patrick Newman. Lots of headline campaigns in Patrick’s book, including Spanx for Men, Merry Maids, Gränsfors Bruk, Milk Duds, and Scotchgard. Like it. Really fresh art direction throughout as well. Don’t miss Inflated Egos, which MC must have for the next MC Writer’s Ball.

VCU Brandcenter Week – Michelle Smith

MEAT

VCU Brandcenter Week on MC continues with Michelle Smith. Every once in a while, you see something so brilliant in a portfolio that it stops you in your tracks. Michelle’s Slim Jim car visor meat clips are in that category. They’re the perfect combination of cheap tchotchke, useful everyday tool, in-your-face branding—and they’re just so Slim Jim. Delish.

VCU Brandcenter Week – Stephen Shocket

1460911500544

VCU Brandcenter Week on MC kicks off with Stephen Socket. As usual, MC is blown away by the CW books coming out of VCU—and Stephen’s is a great example of why. He’s got four ad campaigns for Megabus, Timex, Michaels, and Playstation VR. He’s also got a digital magazine and video about ham (above, Ham Manual), an animated short film (that he animated), a product (bottled coffee), and a kids book “Why Is Everyone Murdering Me?” And that doesn’t include his Other Projects page. How do you get better? You make stuff make stuff make stuff.

Garrett Musar

Garrett is a junior copywriter at Publicis Seattle (as of April 2016, big congrats!). And yet, the index page of his Cargo site is so old. You’ll understand when you see it.

Copywriter Wanted: Elevation Church, NC

elevation2

Ok, this is a new one for MC. Julie Zolio, Staffing Manager at Elevation Church in North Carolina, is on the hunt for a copywriter with a special gift. From Julie: “Signs you may be our next copywriter at Elevation Church:

  • You come up with at least 30 options when writing a headline before you find what you’re looking for.
  • You know the difference between imply and infer.
  • You think long and write short.
  • You can hold your own in a surprisingly competitive game of 4-square.
  • You understand copy and design work together, but copy wears the pants in the relationship.
  • You have range – headlines to tweets to paragraphs of web copy – bring it on.
  • You have skin of the thicker variety.
  • You have experience you can show in the form of writing samples.
  • You don’t remember the last time you quit something.

If you think this is you, here’s the next step in your interview:
Describe Elevation Church in 100 words or less.

Email your writing and a resume to: julie.zollo@elevationchurch.org

A little more about us: Led by Pastor Steven Furtick, Elevation Church is based in Charlotte, NC, with multiple locations in the greater Charlotte area and beyond. Named #1 mid-size place to work by the Charlotte Business Journal for three years running and on Fortune’s list for Best Places to Work for Millennials, Elevation Church currently has new opportunities for passionate, innovative, Jesus-loving people to join the family. If you’re interested in seeing God use you in ways you never imagined, you might just want to apply right now.”

Senior Copywriter Wanted: Eleven Inc., San Francisco

11

Lindsay Vriavas, Director of Recruiting at Eleven Inc. in San Francisco, is on the hunt for a senior writer—and she’s written the post herself. (Love it.) From Lindsay: “Hi. I’m Lindsay. I’m an agency recruiter, not a copywriter. You’re going to have to forgive my lack of eloquence and poor attempts at snarky copywriting antics in this post. I don’t get paid to write. I get paid to find the people that can write. That can write waaaaay better than that other writer at that other agency. So we here at Eleven Inc can be the best at writing ads and creating awesome work.

Enough about me, lets talk about you.

You are a Senior Writer with, like, 6-7ish years of experience. You are someone who can think up ideas that transform brands. Someone who likes crafting and playing with words. You are able to own a room and present to clients, and dangit, you really like what you do! You play well with others; you can work in a dog friendly environment; you can see yourself (or already are) living in San Francisco; you want to work in an agency where you have a voice and a visible platform; you thrive off working across media agnostic campaigns; and ultimately are most interested in telling stories and making prodigious branding and campaign messages.

Eleven is a good agency with good people. We have design in our roots, tremendous strategy chops, media in our toolkit, and genuinely like our people to have a life outside of the office.

Ask around, you’ll hear good things. … and PS, we work on some great clients too. i.e. Apple, Citrix, Dignity Health, Oakley, Virgin America and more …

Please send books and interest (and lasagna recipes) directly to me: lindsayvriavas@eleveninc.com

Mila is a copywriter/ACD at VML in NYC. All kinds of cool projects on her site—but as a long-time resident of the Bay Area, MC has to give a special shout-out to Burger King Proud Whopper. Such a simple, bold, genius idea. Can’t help but make you proud to be in advertising. Love it.

Amanda is a copywriter at Rokkan in NYC. (Her site was submitted by Jeff Samson, CD at Rokkan, big ups!) Love her campaign for Birthday Wishes (above)—a non-profit that throws birthday parties for homeless kids. So good.

Alex (writer) and Tara (art director) are a creative team at 360i in NYC. Check out the animated series “How to Turn a Meeting into Eating” they made for the new Subway (above, featured on both of their sites), for which they did everything but the animation—including performing and recording the music, doing the voiceover, etc. Love that.

Casey is a copywriter at RPA in Los Angeles. All kinds of killer projects for BMW on her site from her time at kbs+ in NYC. Don’t miss her new 360-degree music video for the Honda Civic featuring Moses Sumney (great track). NOTE: You need to watch it on Chrome or Firefox to get the 360-degree-ness. So fun.
