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.

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???

Matt is a senior copywriter at TracyLocke in Wilton, Connecticut. So nice to see a writer’s portfolio that’s full of real-deal headlines. Matt’s got ’em for Pepsi, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Frank’s Red Hot (above), Reebok, and Lodge Cast Iron. Dig it.

Jeff is a senior copywriter at Sanders\Wingo in Austin. (His site was submitted to MC by Alan McCoy, big ups!) Lots of cool projects in his portfolio for brands like Republic Tequila (above), AT&T (featuring Paul George), and Run For The Water—a charity run in Austin that gives one person in Burundi, Africa clean drinking water for life for each entry. Good times.

Alex is a copywriter in San Francisco. In an age of conceptual CWs, its such a pleasure to click through a writer’s site and find a bunch of fun headlines. Yahoo! Grudge Judge, Twisted Root, 7-Eleven Las Vegas Billboards, dig ’em.

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.”

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.)

Ryan is a copywriter/CD at TracyLocke in Dallas, where 7-Eleven is one of his clients. Which means that he gets to do campaigns for Slurpee, the most delicious beverage on the planet, with the President. (Not kidding.) Be sure to check out “7-Eleven—The Simpsons.” Genius.

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 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.
