Freelance Copywriters Wanted

juice-red-alone

Dina Mande, a director at Juice Media, is on the hunt for freelance copywriters (can be located anywhere). From Dina: “Director with small production company on the hunt for copywriters to collaborate with to create some beautiful, memorable, heart-tugging, emotional storytelling spec spots. These could be new spots written or unproduced ideas you have laying around and I’m open to dialogue, talking at camera or voiceover ideas. I’m open to types of brands, although food, health and pharma would be a great fit for my reel.

Spots will be directed by me, through my company and I’d like it to be an involved, collaborative process. You will have a full res copy for your reel as well.

Although this is spec work, I’m willing to pay for each script that I shoot.

Interested? Please send intro email with contact info and links to current relevant work.”

Freelance Copywriter Wanted: Donnan, NorCal

donnan

Kirk Donnan, of Donnan Creative Strategy in Sunnyvale, CA, is on the hunt for a killer freelance writer based in Northern California. From Kirk: “My virtual agency just landed a big client and I need a high-tech copywriter/designer yesterday. If we can find a stellar writer that has a good design perspective, that would suffice.

First assignment: 20-30-slide powerpoint that the CMO can present to Sales and Marketing departments on Jan. 25, at the annual Sales Kickoff.

This is a very technical company, so I need someone with tech, strategy and creative chops. The job will involve spending quite a bit of time with the CMO over the next few weeks in Santa Clara, CA. So someone based in San Francisco or Northern California is probably best.”

Leonardo is a copywriter in São Paulo, Brazil. (For MC’s English speakers, click on the “English” button at the top of Leonardo’s site before you scroll down his portfolio.) His first project “Rescue Drive” is a genius idea for Chevrolet Cobalt. From Leonardo: “Most Brazilians aren’t used to changing their car unless they really need to. So, we found the perfect moment to present the new Chevrolet Cobalt.” When their car breaks down. Also, don’t miss his videos for Bradesco bank (above), so much drama! You can’t do that better.
