Shea is a copywriter at Cactus in Denver. MC was laughing all the way through his portfolio, from the testimonials on the home page, to his Extracurriculars projects (would really like to hear some of those Hot Tubbin’ voicemails), to his References focus group. So funny.

Cactus in Denver is on the hunt for a copywriter and an art director. From Cactus: “Don’t just apply because weed is legal. That might be a fine initial reason to look at a Colorado agency, but we have other benefits to living and working in CO and at Cactus that you may also want to consider. Cactus is a place that provides that balance of CO fun on the weekends with the ability to do award-winning work during the week. We are a driven team of people that are doing the best work of our careers and striving to make every project great. We are a small (45 Cacti and growing) agency doing innovative, imaginative and bold work for cool clients and for ourselves. We aim to make our work and our portfolios better every day, with every project. For example, last year we won campaign of the year for AdAge. We are making our corner of the planet a better place to live, work and play through smart and thought-provoking ideas and executions, and we are fortunate to be doing it in one of the best places to live. We are looking for top talent to help us further our mission and to add to the culture and our mojo. And yes, of course, weed is now legal.
We’re looking for an outstanding copywriter and art director, each with 3-5 years experience, in advertising or a closely related field. To be seriously considered, copywriters must submit an exceptional portfolio of work, displaying superior conceptual ideation skills, strong headlines, well-written copy and the ability to produce integrated campaigns across digital, video and 2D media. Art directors must submit an exceptional portfolio displaying superior conceptual ideation skills and a wide-ranging skill set (advertising, design, typography and layout; digital, video and 2D media). For both positions, thriving in Cactus’ team-centric environment requires a collaborative spirit, a solution-oriented mindset and the drive to deliver your best work on a daily basis. We value those qualities as much as we value the quality of your portfolio, so we don’t take them lightly.”

Jay is a senior copywriter in Denver. Lots of fun stuff in his portfolio, including mad libs biz cards for David Pahl Photography. If you’re a copywriter, at some point in your career you’re going to try a campaign/piece that uses mad libs, and 99.9999% of the time it will be DOA. Odds are, you’ll get feedback like “people hate word puzzles” or “people don’t like to read” or “that’s too much thinking.” Which is infuriating, because it’s true. But people should like to read, and they should like to think, and if we help them do that, aren’t we making the world a better place, one David Pahl Photography biz card at a time? These questions are too deep for MC. But nice work, Mr. Roth.
