Lindsey Campbell


Lindsey is a copywriter at Brand Content in Boston, previously in-house at Staples (last post on MC 07.03.14). In a world that’s spinning a little negative at the moment, it’s so nice to see someone using their copywriter powers for good. Lindsey’s no-budget School The World campaign generated 7 million views in one week for a non-profit that builds schools for kids in developing countries. More of that, please.

Todd is a freelance copywriter/CD in Boston. Since his last post on MC over six years ago (05.10.10, so long ago), Todd’s been busy. Like, super busy. Including lighting the 26-foot high Jack Daniel’s Barrel Tree (above), which looks like inspiration for MC’s 2016 front yard holiday display. Yes, please. Welcome back, Mr. Mitchell.

Lawrence O’Toole


Lawrence is a copywriter/ACD at Brand Content in Boston. Love his projects for Jeremiah Weed, Monster.com, and others—however, MC had no choice but to feature his T.F. Kinnealey & Co. campaign (above). Headlines made out of meat. Yes. Lawrence wins the prize. Well done, indeed, sir.

Copywriter Wanted: Breakaway, Boston


Scott Maney, Chief Creative Officer (and good friend to MC) at Breakaway in Boston, is on the hunt for a killer copywriter. From Scott: “We’re looking for a writer who can actually write. Sounds crazy, but not everything is a visual solution or an idea for an app.

We need someone who thinks like an entrepreneur and is creative like an artist and is a craftsman (or craftswoman) about their work. There’s a shit ton of opportunity here – to build your book, to launch business ideas, to work with cool start-ups, to change big brands. We need honey badgers that don’t care what the medium is, they can crush it whether it’s film or print or digital or packaging or naming or collateral or web. Because we do all those things and so will the writer.

It’s not about how much experience you have. Would rather have the right person with a year experience than the wrong one with ten. But if you have leadership skills and can be in front of clients, we’ll give you all the responsibility you can handle and the pay that goes along with it.”

Check us out at breakaway.com.”

Send a note and your book to Scott Maney at smaney@breakaway.com.

Lawrence Wang


Lawrence is a copywriter at SapientNitro in Boston. Four years ago, he landed his first gig at Breakaway after seeing a post about it on MC. (Love that.) Now he’s shooting the fiddle for Ram, making rich media banners for Fiat, and posting all kinds of “chicanery” around the office. Well done, sir.

Lindsey Campbell


Lindsey is an in-house copywriter at Staples in Framingham, MA. There’s nothing MC digs more than an in-house CW fighting the good fight for a classic brand. From the holiday Snowbot to Alice Cooper to one of the best back-to-school spots ever (click here) to Lindsey’s Easy Button mailer (above), Staples has a voice that’s got to be fun to play with a writer. Nice.
