Shanteka Sigers, SVP/ECD at Sanders\Wingo in Austin (and friend of MC), is looking for copywriters. From Shanteka: “Sanders\Wingo was founded by David Sanders, a copywriter. He once got a 92-second radio spot on the air. He went on daily two-hour hikes and ate whole grains in the ’80s. Most people ate cocaine for breakfast in the ’80s. And most importantly, David Sanders taught that our job is to make things happen right now. I need copywriters in Austin and El Paso. All levels. You’ll work on big brands like AT&T, Burger King and MINI. You’ll work on small brands like Run For The Water, El Paso Electric and the District Attorney of El Paso. The DA let us create an award-winning domestic violence brochure hidden inside a lipstick case, and feng shui his waiting area. I’m looking for some swashbuckling, enterprising, David Sanders-esque copywriters that want to make things happen. Healthy diet optional.” Interested? Contact Shanketa at the address below.

James is a junior copywriter/visual artist in Austin looking for his first CW gig. He went to school in L.A. for TV Production/New Media/Advertising at Mike Curb College of Arts, Media and Communication. Then studied copywriting and interactive at The Book Shop. Clicking through this site, it’s 90% visual arts and 10% copywriting. Thing is, so many shops/companies are looking to add in-house video capability, someone out there might think that’s just fine.

Harry is a new copywriter in Austin, having graduating from Texas in 2012. Ok, how cute is his ad for Remington Super Quiet Mowers (above), with the sleeping wiener dog in the patch of un-mowed grass? Adorable. Hello, MC post.

Sarah is a copywriter at Sanders/Wingo in Austin. (Her site was submitted by Nikki Lott at Integer. High-five, Nikki.) One of the things MC enjoys most, going through a CW’s portfolio, is seeing their personality come through the work. Spend 30 seconds on Sarah’s site, and you see it. Bad-ass. Also, be sure to check out her rad blog Badder Homes & Gardens, with Nikki and Krista Hogg. Awesome.

Justin is a senior copywriter at T3 in Austin. MC predicts that someday, Austin will be the advertising equivalent of Minneapolis in the south. Got the music. Got the culture. Got the Longhorns. Got Justin Clemens, writing for Dell, WSJ, U of Texas, Tidy Cats, and (most importantly) his nephew Owen’s Austin Addy-winning birth announcement.

Haley is a new copywriter at GSD&M, fresh out of Creative Circus (fantastic first gig). Which means that we get to see what kind of student work a shop like GSD&M is digging right now. Like Haley’s Two Men and a Truck campaign. Maybe it’s due to the number of moves MC has gone through over the past few years (lots), but love that one. Especially the wallscape. So on the money.

Kathy is a copywriter/ACD at Proof in Austin. If you’re a sucker for crazy animation/illustration like MC, check out Kathy’s campaign for Heritage Boot Elves. (In Broadcast, second to the last spot.) Bonus points for Spanish with subtitles.

Shanteka is a copywriter/GCD/SVP at Sanders\Wingo in Austin. First, check out her AT&T spot “Swag.” Then click on Viral and check out the Swag parodies. Love it when that happens.

Adrian is one half of an Austin freelance creative team with AD Rochelle Raiss. Before that he did time at GSD&M and CP+B, with a stint in Barack Obama’s presidential campaign sandwiched between the two. Adrian and Rochelle call themselves Third Culture Kidz, which they describe on their site as “someone who, as a child, has spent a significant period of time in one or more culture(s) other than his or her own, thus integrating elements of those cultures and their own birth culture, into a third culture.”

Allen is a copywriter/CD at GSD&M in Austin. He’s got some great BMW stuff on his site, including the online movie/event “The Ramp” which was forwarded to me 1,342,468 times. For good reason.
