Ryan Ruelos at GreenRubino in Seattle is looking for a copywriter. From Ryan: “GreenRubino is seeking qualified candidates for the position of Copywriter. If you are passionate, collaborative, idea-driven, slightly askew, and fanatical about words, ads, brands, and building experiences, please contact us. We are an integrated, Seattle-based, firmly rooted and fiercely motivated advertising agency and branding firm, so versatility is an essential skill-set. Our ideal candidate is an idea person and a master wordsmith—fluent in short, smart, wry, insightful points-of-view; plus can also produce tight, crisp long-form copy and online content when called upon. If you toil unceasingly in perfecting headlines and loathe cliched, tired, ‘cute’ twists of phrase, you’re likely the right fit for us. Experience in writing television, radio, and online film work is favorable. The right candidate will likely have graduated from either an art or advertising program or possess a Bachelors Degree in some form of communications or humanities. 2 – 4 years of advertising agency experience is a huge advantage, but if you’re a recent graduate with a very, very strong portfolio, we would love to meet you. (Please note that we are not seeking editorial writers at this time.) About GreenRubino: full-service communications firm-slash-marketing commune founded in 1977. Our experience, growth and results have established us as one of the Northwest’s most successful and respected agencies.”

Torin is a copywriter at Wexley School for Girls in Seattle (and has slept there “approximately nine times”). How much does MC dig his Microsoft Kinect for Windows project? The most. Recruiting engineers with a bacon cart outside Amazon and Google HQs. Balls. Genius + balls.

The Wexley song is brilliant. The rotating condiment packets are brilliant. The name of the shop is, in MC’s humble opinion, top 10 all time. What makes it all so genius? It’s just so stupid. And a shop that allows itself to be stupid is a shop made for writers.

Yutaka is a copywriter at Creature Seattle, CP+B before that. His work sucks. (Not really.) His site sucks. (Not really.) He sucks. Or, that’s what his site proclaims. Absolutely, positively hysterical. Love it love it love it.
[UPDATE.01.19.2010: Yutaka is no longer at Creature, he moved back to Japan]
