Robin Marco, Creative Recruiter at TracyLocke Dallas, is looking for a mind-blowing copywriter. From Robin: “We could throw a whole bunch of clichés at you right now: maverick, nonconformist, fresh thinker. But let’s be honest. What we’re looking for is a bit of a character. Your ideas are hilarious, your personal interests are unorthodox, and your jokes can sometimes scare account executives. Ideal candidates will have agency experience (in advertising years). If your book makes us “wish we’d thought of that,” we don’t care what your resume says. Our group is a close-knit, motley crew, so tough skin is important. We’re looking for a perfectionist and a risk taker. You are an exciting and passionate person who got into advertising because you love it. Whether you are just out of school or have 15 years in the business, you should have a fire in your belly – a forest fire.”

Michael is a copywriter at Eleven in San Francisco. (His link was submitted to MC by fellow CW Chris Elzinga, big ups.) Lots of really fun work on his site for an awesome mix of clients like Sun Valley, Nike Baseball, Square, Spiderman 3, Virgin, and Black Star Beer (see above trophy). Don’t miss Skippy, the stone skipping robot. Good thing MC didn’t find Skippy when he was live online. Would have been five days of complete un-productivity.
