Jason is a copywriter/CD at The Buntin Group in Nashville. He’s got my favorite all-time McDonald’s spot in his portfolio (above), which MC has no choice but to feature in his post—though he has plenty of new work in on his site, too. So good. Just so so good.

Jayant Savant

oddeven

Jayant is Creative Copy Group Head at Publicis in Mumbai, India. How does a copywriter get a campaign of straight-up palindromes in his portfolio? When it’s a campaign for the Skoda Laura with Parktronic, which drives the same forward or backward. Tip o’ the Hat, Jayant. Palindromes!

Elizabeth King

db.bacon1

Elizabeth is a copywriter/ACD at Kirshenbaum in NYC. She’s got tons of awesome work for BMW all over her site, and that’s really what MC should have featured above. But then, as Elizabeth put it, “Diamonds are a copywriter’s best friend.” Don’t miss Wall Street Journal Print, with side-by-side ads for the BMW 6 and 7 … Sterling, Draper … so good.

UPDATE: Bevan Mahaney

jam

Bevan is a copywriter in NYC. Since her last post on MC (6.10.13), she’s added a bunch of new work to her site including “Spread the Jam” for the Jam Wireless Speaker. Which looks like a giant food fight (with different flavored jams) slash rave on the streets of NYC. At some point, there was a producer who had to order a permit for that. “So, yeah, we’ve got these buckets of jam …”

CW Wanted: INNOCEAN, Huntington Beach

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 8.58.00 AM

Jill Pool, Director of Creative Resources at INNOCEAN, is on the hunt for a copywriter. From Jill, “We’re looking for a social copywriter. Someone who loves and embraces everything social media. You’ve got solid concepting chops, but you’re also a tactical ninja. You punctuate with precision. You drop #hashtags in all the right places. And you crank out metadata like a machine. Being constrained to 90 characters? No big deal. (And that’s INCLUDING a bit.ly.) You get excited every time your Twitter app gets an update. Even more so whenever a new social app comes out. When your Klout score drops, your heart sinks, too. But then you come up with a new posting strategy FTW. Also, maybe you made bank selling your Flappy Bird-loaded iPhone on eBay recently. In which case you probably don’t need this gig. But we should talk anyway.” To apply, email your stuff to Jill at the address below.

Send your stuff to: jpool@innoceanusa.com
