Gabriel Sehringer

gabe2

Gabriel is a new copywriter after graduating from UMass Amherst, available for hire June 1st. He wrote such a nice note to MC (thanks again, man!), just going to post it as-is: “My school doesn’t have a copywriting (or even advertising) program so I’ve had to put together a portfolio on my own & learn by looking through hundreds of other people’s books. I was first pointed in MC’s direction at Mike Lear’s suggestion a few years ago, and since then, your site has been one of the best resources for finding encouraging writers & CDs, as well as for setting a high bar for my own creative work. Thank you very much for all you do.

About me: I spent last summer as a copywriting intern at R/GA NY, and also got the amazing chance to go to Cannes to take part in the Roger Hatchuel Student Academy there. Currently looking for a junior writing job in New York City.”

Congrats, Gabriel! Can’t wait to see where you land.

VCU Brandcenter Week – Alex McClelland

GIF_scissor

Alex is a brand new art director fresh out of VCU. When a CD hires a new creative, one of the first things they often say is some version of: “Scare me! Don’t hold back. We can always reel you back in—but out of the gate, just go for it.” Ok, so Alex’s Peeps project is just flat-out scary (above). So is her creepy eyeball homepage. And Gollum Girl illustrations. (PS, don’t miss her Illustrations page. So cool.) Love it all.
