Justin is a freelance art director in Virginia on the hunt for his next thing. As always, MC loves to see how an art director/designer brings words to life and Justin’s got some nice typography in his book (check out his Athleta project and separate “Fun” page). Also, don’t miss his Photography page. (NOTE: Password for HP project is “Justin”.) Good times.

Senior Copywriter/Mid-level Copywriter

We are brand experience designers. Using design thinking, we craft brand experiences that create value at every relevant touchpoint. From in-store merchandising, digital/social/mobile applications and retailer initiatives to local marketing, packaging development and content creation, our purpose is to get consumers and shoppers to buy into your brand and purchase your product.


  • We are looking for a copywriter and a senior copywriter to join our global HP (Hewlett-Packard) creative team who understand that technology needs to be explained in terms that humans can embrace and understand.
  • You will create copy that illustrates the detailed side of HP technology and brings out that core human benefit by making these products and features easier to understand and meaningful to the consumer. 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.


  • 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.

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.

Good times.

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.
