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.

Robin Marco, Creative Recruiter at TracyLocke Dallas, is looking for a mind-blowing copywriter. From Robin: “We could throw a whole bunch of clichés at you right now: maverick, nonconformist, fresh thinker. But let’s be honest. What we’re looking for is a bit of a character. Your ideas are hilarious, your personal interests are unorthodox, and your jokes can sometimes scare account executives. Ideal candidates will have agency experience (in advertising years). If your book makes us “wish we’d thought of that,” we don’t care what your resume says. Our group is a close-knit, motley crew, so tough skin is important. We’re looking for a perfectionist and a risk taker. You are an exciting and passionate person who got into advertising because you love it. Whether you are just out of school or have 15 years in the business, you should have a fire in your belly – a forest fire.”

If you are passionate, collaborative, idea-driven, slightly askew, and fanatical about words, ads, brands, and building experiences, please contact us.

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.

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.

Rafi Kugler, Creative Talent Manager at Draftfcb SF, is looking for both a senior writer (for EA and Kikkoman) and a senior team (for EA). Chris Ford, CCO of Draftfcb, is a good friend of MC and a brilliant writer/CD. If you’re in the market, these are killer gigs. Descriptions and contact info below.
Senior Writer: “DRAFTFCB San Francisco is looking for a senior writer to work on EA and Kikkoman. Senior writer means 5+ years in the business, an understanding of the industry from strategy to production and a hunger to lead. Versatility is key. From The Sims to Dead Space to Kikkoman, writing in different tones is an essential skill. Each game, every Kikkoman campaign, is fully integrated, so fluency in traditional, digital, experiential and experimental thinking is the price of entry. These two accounts have us filming documentaries in Japan, retouching everyone from Katy Perry to David Hasselhoff and visiting France and New York to pick up some shiny objects. The expectation is autonomous operation, plane-landing capacity, client savvy and exceptional work. Videogame interest/experience/mastery a huge plus. No softball skills required.”
Senior Team: “DRAFTFCB San Francisco is looking for a senior team to work on EA. Senior means 5+ years in the business, leading meetings, landing planes and handling projects without constant supervision. Team means we’re looking for people with partners. If there’s no partner, or the current one sucks, we’re open to matchmaking, resurrection and suggestions. EA titles cover a broad range of genres. From first-person-shooters like Medal of Honor, to gory space thrillers like Dead Space, to the playfully naughty Sims, each game requires fully integrated thinking. Anything less is not how we do. This is the client the agency doubles down on. It’s the account that brings home the hardware. From Lions and Pencils, to Hasselhoff and Beckham, this role is a trial by opportunity. Videogame interest/experience/mastery a huge plus. No softball skills required.”

Diane Seimetz, Principal/Brand Insights at Launch in Carrollton, Texas, is looking for a writer. From Diane, “We are mega-agency refugees who decided if we were going to work for lunatics, they might as well be us. Our culture is creative-centric (kismet: two of the three principals are, indeed, creative people), smart, with a generous helping of “alecky” thrown in. As a boutique, we have been able to attract like minded mega-agency client refugees who wanted more big ideas with fewer layers. Our resulting collection of accounts are amazing and amazingly varied; they range, literally, from brass bands to Bentleys. Does that sound fun, or what.
We are looking for a special person who happens to double as a great writer. Maybe ‘great conceptual person with impeccable taste’ might be a better articulation. You think in ideas and campaigns. You’re a collaborator, your ideas runneth over, you have a strong work ethic, you want to impact the companies you create for, and dream of having an entire agency helping you sell your work (versus, say, killing it before it leaves the building). You’ve got award-winning TV and radio, cackle-producing print, ingenious out of home, intriguing interactive. You are selfish about building your book. Every brief is an opportunity waiting to happen. If any of the aforementioned resonates with you (er, you all…this is Texas), that could be a sign. Please forward your resume, salary requirement (puleeze), and digital renditions of your portfolio as soon as humanly possible.”
