mic

Rebecca is a copywriter at R/GA in NYC. Love the headline on her site: “Copywriter—my Art Director didn’t help me with this.” (Ha! Just own it.) Her book is in that place that’s so fun to see, half student and half produced work—already got some cool projects for Verizon and Mercedes. Can’t wait to see what she does next!

Amy Creyer

claw-hand

Amy is a copywriter/ACD at Momentum in Chicago. Before becoming a copywriter, she got her start in advertising as a professional influencer. From Amy: “At the height of fashion blogging popularity my street-style blog, ChicagoStreetStyle.com, had 1.4 million annual uniques. As a one-woman content shop I landed projects with major brands like Burberry and Microsoft, and I was an official Maxxinista for T.J.Maxx. Through the process of these partnerships, I discovered that what I loved most about being creative for a living is thinking of the Big Idea. So I made the conscious decision to leave influencing and join the agency world. Here in Chicago I’ve worked at Schafer Condon Carter, FCB Chicago, and the Leo Burnett Group. Currently I’m an Associate Creative Director at Momentum Worldwide’s Chicago office, where I dream up transformative experiences for clients like Mondelez and United Airlines.” Love it.

Mark Walter

Mark is a senior copywriter at DigitasLBi in NYC. Sometimes you click through a writer’s site and you can tell that the person on the other end of the portfolio just loves making stuff. Definitely the case with Mark’s site. After “Selected Work” (password for protected projects, including featured spot above, is ‘happy’), don’t miss “Side Projects” and “Etc.” Good times.
