Raoni is a senior copywriter at DDB Mozambique (MC’s first site from Mozambique, yes!), previously at agencies in Brazil. He’s worked on banks, insurers, beverages, credit cards, and cars, for brands like Google, Gatorade, Paints Suvinil, Toyota, Vodacom, and Standard Bank. No matter the language, it’s so cool to see the ideas that get produced in different parts of the world. Always something to learn.

Drew is a senior copywriter at 160over90 in Gainesville, Florida, previously at BRIGHT RED\TBWA in Tallahassee, and before that Mirium in Minneapolis—where he got to work on the super cute Dream Champion campaign for American Family Insurance (above). Derek Jeter, JJ Watt and Kevin Durant, geez.

Rob Kerr, Executive Creative Director of Bright Red\TBWA in Tallahassee, Florida is on the hunt for junior, mid-level and senior copywriters (no ACDs or CDs, please). From Rob: “The Southeastern outpost of \TBWA has been on a new-business roll lately and is currently accepting books.
Do you believe big ideas can come from anywhere? We do. We expect them from you, consistently. You’ll be thrown into the fire day one and have the opportunity to work on a diverse range of clients from travel & tourism, consumer packaged goods, durable products to fast-food. This is not for the faint-of-heart — you will be juggling multiple assignments, often with tight deadlines and will be expected to win awards. Sound like you?
Don’t apply if you have your heart set on working in New York. Tallahassee, Florida couldn’t be further from Madison Avenue. Think small-town hustle meets global muscle.”
Send your portfolio to Rob at: email@example.com

Enda is a copywriter at Cawley Nea \ TBWA in Dublin, Ireland. Lots of killer projects on his site for all kinds of clients, including Maynooth University, TG4, Irish Rail, and Absolut. Don’t miss his “Smartdriver” video for No Nonsense (above). Good idea.

In May 2015, Bright Red\TBWA posted a job opening for a Senior CW on MC. Senior Copywriter Philip Laue saw the post, got the gig, and now six months later is posting a new CW opening on MC. Love that. From Philip: “I was like you once. Reading Modern Copywriter and wondering if anybody ever really gets hired from these job posts. Aren’t the robots supposed to be taking over soon anyways? Well, good news, real person. If the copy bots are upon us, they haven’t hit Tallahassee yet.
This outpost of great advertising is still being run by some of the most creative humans you’ll ever meet. We’re looking for another creative human to join our ranks, preferably in a mid-level or senior role with at least four years of experience. You’ll be working alongside other real people to do award-winning advertising for travel and tourism, consumer packaged goods, and more.
Just send your resume and portfolio to my boss (Rob Kerr, ECD) at firstname.lastname@example.org. He’s totally not a robot either and this whole post is totally not the only way that I can get a message to the outside world. And even if it was, who cares? This place pays you a competitive salary to write stuff like this.”

Michelle is a copywriter/ACD at Code and Theory in NYC. Lots of great work all over her site, but extra big ups for her project Rethink Breast Cancer. So awesome to see a CW using her powers for good, and it doesn’t get much gooder than Breast Cancer: The Musical (above). Dig it.

Alexandre is a Brazilian copywriter working at digital agency Sinc in São Paulo. Don’t miss his integrated campaign for Par Perfeito, featuring parades of single people. That might not work so well here in the States. But in Brazil, from the looks of the video, oh yeah.
