Vidhi is a copywriter looking for opportunities in NYC after recently moving to the States from Argentina where she was a creative lead at Mother Buenos Aires. Killer variety of projects on her site, including short films for Renault (above), a PETA video featuring Pamela Anderson, Colors Magazine (where Vidhi was an editor), and the beginnings of The Global Warming Cookbook (and possibly pop-up restaurant). Dig it.

Danielle McGuckin and Ann Perry at McCann Detroit are on the hunt for unicorns. Copywriter unicorns! From McCann: “McCann Worldgroup Detroit is looking for copywriters to work on world-class accounts such as Chevrolet, Michigan Tourism, ALDI and more. We need writers. Excellent ones. Writers who put together a headline that makes other writers jealous. Writers who write copy novelists want to plagiarize. And if you’re only doing it for print or TV then don’t bother submitting your portfolio over here – we need people who can work in every channel. So, yeah, great writers. Every channel. And you have to be cool to work with. In other words, we might be looking for a unicorn.”
Are you that unicorn? Then apply to firstname.lastname@example.org

Emma is a senior copywriter/ACD at beauty@gotham, McCann Worldgroup in NYC. She has helped kill not one, but two of the most famous taglines in the history of modern advertising. She helped put “Maybe she’s born with it. Maybe it’s Maybelline” to bed for “Make It Happen.” Same with Wisk’s “Ring Around The Collar” for “Fight Stains with Science.” What’s #3 going to be???

Chris is a copywriter at MRM McCann in Frankfurt, Germany. Bunch of cool microsites in his portfolio, including five for Opel. Don’t leave without checking out his crazy Snackball machine for GranataPet. They need to have a contest where you can win one of those things for the backyard, your very own auto dog feeder and fetcher. Just make sure to duck before the tennis ball launches—dangerous!

Since his last post on MC (03.26.12), Jim has moved from Portland to SoCal and added some new work to his site. Time for an update! It should also be noted that Jim is an Oregon grad, as is MC. So, while he’s now living the high life in Hermosa Beach or wherever, his head is firmly on the ground. Or his feet. No, his feet are in the sand. His head, then. On the ground. (Ahem.) Go Ducks!
