There’s a level of storytelling that needs to be maintained to create clear, concise copy that’s also engaging to read.
  • On a project-by-project basis, this position will require drafting communication about product benefits and features, often within short timelines. Headline development will also be a key component. You will also need to be able to incorporate feedback from both the agency and clients and turn around revisions quickly.

Qualifications

  • Bachelor of Arts degree and previous agency experience required. Previous technology writing a plus.
  • The ideal candidates will be extremely motivated and able to work well on their own as well as within their team. We’re big into collaboration here, and you should be, too.
  • Copywriter Candidates will have 1+ years of experience as a copywriter in an agency setting. Senior Copywriters will have 4+ years of experience as a copywriter in an agency setting.

  • Portfolio School recommended. BA degree or the equivalent required.
  • Advertising agency experience is ideal.

srg2

Jamie Caruso from Sterling-Rice Group in Boulder, Colorado, is on the hunt for copywriters, art directors, and production designers at all levels. From SRG, “Sterling-Rice Group (SRG) is a premier consulting and communications firm. We have created positive and enduring impact for our clients for more than 30 years.

SRG’s unique fusion of strategic and creative capabilities has helped build brands and drive growth at companies big (e.g., PepsiCo, Wendy’s, Lilly) and small (e.g., Dave’s Killer Bread, MyChelle Dermaceuticals, Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers). Founded in 1984, we’ve grown our firm through an integrated combination of capabilities that, together, are unique in the industry. We specialize in consumer insights, strategy, innovation, design, and communications.

Perhaps more important than what we do at SRG is how we do it. Before ever having a client, our founders defined the core beliefs upon which SRG would be built: Excellence, Creativity, Education, Honesty, Respect, Social Value, Responsibility, and Fun. For 30+ years, we have measured our performance on these beliefs annually. And because we live these beliefs every day, we’ve been named a Best Place to Work by AdAge in 2017 and Outside Magazine for the past six years.

Please apply at www.srg.com/careers with a link to your portfolio. We’ll be in touch if there is a match with our needs. We can’t wait to see what you have to offer.”

VCU Brandcenter Week – Alex McClelland

GIF_scissor

Alex is a brand new art director fresh out of VCU. When a CD hires a new creative, one of the first things they often say is some version of: “Scare me! Don’t hold back. We can always reel you back in—but out of the gate, just go for it.” Ok, so Alex’s Peeps project is just flat-out scary (above). So is her creepy eyeball homepage. And Gollum Girl illustrations. (PS, don’t miss her Illustrations page. So cool.) Love it all.

As a writer, one of the first things MC looks at in designer portfolios is typography. Don’t miss Jon’s typography page in the design section of his site (awesome). But there’s great type all over his site, including in his Mars One project (above, featured under art direction). Take me, please.
