Drake is a new copywriter in Chicago, just finishing up an internship at DDB. All kinds of interesting clients in his portfolio including AppleJacks, Deering Banjos and Kohler Music Showerheads. How has MC never heard of music showerheads—showerheads and speakers in one, like shampoo and conditioner in the same bottle? Hello, Santa Wish List.

Sarah is a new copywriter after recently graduating from Chicago Portfolio School, and is now freelancing at DDB Chicago. This is what it’s like for the kids these days. Sarah’s got a campaign for Orville Redenbacher Ready-to-Eat Popcorn that’s all about how much easier it is than microwave popcorn. Wait, you mean we need something easier than microwave popcorn?! But. But. In her ad above, it’s equal to the difference between typewriters and computers. But I. I just. (Sigh)

Jose is a copywriter at Dieste in Chicago. He’s also a professional skateboarder who did some time at Second City. (Proving once again that drummers, comedians and surfers/skateboarders make great copywriters.) So cool to see how writers like Jose jump from one ad culture to another—and one language to another. A good idea is a good idea.

Ashley is graduating from Creative Circus on December 19th. Lots of great student projects and side stuff on her site. Don’t miss her spec spot for Prilosec OTC (above). “Hey there. You’re up awfully late. Something keeping you awake? You feeling hot? Is there something burning, deep down inside you? [Whispers] Is it heartburn?” Ha-ha! Dig it.

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.”
