Jeff Gorman

Jeff is a freelance copywriter/director/CD in Los Angeles. (Yes, this is Jeff Gorman of Johns+Gorman Films.) His site is a library of one “that was one of my favorite commercials ever” after another. His client page lists out the following: “Nike, LA Eyeworks, Pioneer Electronics, Moulinex, Independent Life, ABC, Little Caesars Pizza, Staples, Lexus, Kia, Bud Light (one of which was the USA TODAY’s #1 spot in the ’04 Super Bowl), American Express, Truth Anti-Smoking, Sprint, Capital One, Fox Sports, ESPN, Geico, Sony Playstation, Sprite, Holiday Inn, Toyota, Jeep, Coke, Boars Head, Mercedes, Haggar, Burger King, McDonalds, Stanley Tools, National Car Rental, Energizer, Lays, Ikea, Sealy, NFL, Best Buy, KFC, Bell South, Coors Light, Jiffy Lube, 7-Up, Alaska Airlines, to name a few. He also directed the pioneering campaign for Sunkist California Pistachios which initiated the Mocumentary style which became an industry-wide trend.”

Good grief. Top off a glass of whatever you’re drinking, kick back and enjoy this one. Good times.

Senior CWs Wanted: 160over90, CA & PA & FL

160

160over90 is on the hunt for senior copywriters to join their Philadelphia, Newport Beach and Gainesville offices. From 160over90: “Guess who’s writing this copy? That’s right, a senior copywriter! That’s like a regular copywriter, except with a minimum of two years experience! Fortunately, most of our senior copywriters rarely find themselves mired in the depths of agency website copy, instead focusing on crafting stories for everything from 64-page viewbooks to billboards to television scripts. You’ll work alongside designers to build new brands or further develop established ones. And you’ll get to present your own work to clients. It will be fun, I promise.”

For all positions, contact their creative recruiter Alyssa at: akasal@160over90.com
