Copywriters Wanted: TracyLocke, CT


Erika Udstuen, Global Talent Scout at TracyLocke, is on the hunt for a copywriter to join their Wilton, Connecticut office. From TracyLocke: “If you want to make a difference, you have to do things differently. That’s why we don’t think like marketers; rather, we live like designers, putting intent and purpose behind every thought. For the past 100 years, that purpose has been to motivate people to buy. And because buying is about believing, we design brand experiences that reshape the ways people behave by giving them more reasons to connect with brands and products than ever before. At TracyLocke, nothing we do is by default. Everything We Do Is Buy Design.


TracyLocke’s Connecticut office is growing. We are looking for several Copywriters with passion and talent in abundance who desire a creative and collaborative environment.

Whether your first word was written, or you were inspired by the world’s greatest mentors along your journey, we want to hear from you.

How do you make it into the halls of TracyLocke? Have a great on-line portfolio with samples of relevant brand solutions to client and consumer challenges. A campaign or two that creates a connection between a consumer’s heart and head. Your samples must articulate your passion and showcase years of thoughtful blood, sweat and tears from your journalism and advertising school. The right attitude is a must.

If you believe that the work is everything, contact us.

We have opportunities on three of our global brand accounts.


  • Journalism, Advertising, or Portfolio School recommended.
  • An on-line portfolio with work samples are required to be considered.

Brad Meyers


Brad is a VP/CD/copywriter at DigitasSF. Since his last post on MC (way back on 09.06.12), he’s added all kinds of awesome work to his site including projects for Taco Bell, Playstation, and a bunch of comedy writing. If you’re one of the few who haven’t seen Taco Bell Blackout (above), don’t miss it. One of the smartest, bravest social media stunts ever. Just fantastic.

CW Wanted: TracyLocke Dallas


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.”

Apply online at: tracylocke.com

Daniel Joseph

Daniel is a copywriter in San Francisco, formerly at Y&R Prague and TracyLocke NYC. So fun to see what a portfolio looks like after spending a couple of years in Prague. Because it’s so fun to imagine, hey, what if I did that? What if I packed it up and moved to Prague? How awesome would that be?

Brad Meyers

Brad is a copywriter/ACD in San Francisco. People often ask MC, what makes a good CW portfolio? Pretty simple. When you’re clicking through it, do you feel jealous? Of the work? Do you wish it was yours? That’s a good start. Brad’s site includes a campaign that made MC so jealous back in the day. That 7-Eleven experiential campaign, where they turned 12 stores into Kwik-E-Marts from the Simpsons to hype the release of the Simpsons Movie. Just fantastic.

Cassidy Fletcher

Cassidy is a copywriter/ACD at Tris3ct in Chicago. (Portfolio submitted by friend of MC Alan McCoy, big ups.) Super clean presentation of her work, and such a writer-ish way to present it. All words: category columns, campaign groupings, individual titles. Did I mention super clean? Maybe that’s because Cassidy is not only a writer, but has been doing a lot of work recently for toilet tissues? (Sorry. Had to.)

Julie is a copywriter/principal/ECD at Giant Noodle in Dallas. Her portfolio is just loaded with awesome writing. If you’ve ever had to pen something for the Super Bowl, for a client that didn’t officially sponsor the Super Bowl, you must check out Dean’s Dip.

Alan McCoy

Alan is a copywriter at The Integer Group in Dallas. He’s got all kinds of killer clients in his book, but the first is just ridiculous. How does it feel to have a Lamborghini brief land on your desk? One can only hope Alan got to do a little product research.
