Brad is a copywriter/ACD at Trozzolo in Kansas City. MC is clicking through Brad’s book and what pops up onto the screen shining like a glorious piece of print glory? Is it, could that be, but it’s not, yes it is, a long copy campaign for a bank, including one ad that’s nothing but words? “Like a steam engine coal slinger, you stoke it with the next client contract …” Oh hells yes.

Theresa Thornhill, recruiter at Barkley in Kansas City, is on the hunt for CWs. From Theresa, “Barkley is the largest employee-owned advertising agency in the US. Ownership has its advantages. So if you’re looking to work with people who have skin in the game, we might be a pretty good fit. We’re looking for a conceptual, collaborative thinker who’s able to put big ideas on paper. Your book is filled with big ideas presented in a simple, direct format. Your style is undetectable because you take a fresh approach for every brand and every assignment you take on. You’re comfortable (and good at) writing short copy and headlines…short and to the point.” Send your link and rez to Theresa at the email below:
Theresa’s email: firstname.lastname@example.org
BONUS: Barkley’s also looking for an ACD/CD-level freelance team to potentially go full-time.

Jessi is a senior copywriter at Kuhn & Wittenborn Advertising in Kansas City. Explore her site and the links on it, and you’ll find about 50% copywriting and 50% other writing: blogs, poetry, posters, etc. Which makes sense, seeing as how she started life as a magazine writer/editor. Copywriters come from everywhere. MC likes that.

Matt is a senior copywriter at Barkley in Kansas City. Bunch of fun work on his site, including Sonic Drive-in, Blue Bunny Ice Cream, Krispy Kreme, Mr. Coffee and plenty more. The caption above his Sonic TV spots simply says, “These commercials increased sales by 1000%. I’m sure of it.” How many times have I wanted to write that? Also, be sure to click on Bio for one of the most awesome family photos ever.

Tom is a copywriter/CD at Barkley in Kansas City. His site is filled with all kinds of good stuff, including an extended version of the above American Airlines spot. Commercials are supposed to be one good moment, right? This one’s got like five. The Honesty Hat scene just kills me.
