Awesome. Ben also wrote the tagline for Words With Friends, “May the best friend win.” If you’re a WWF junky like MC, that’s tagline rock stardom. But is Ben any good at WWF, you ask?! MC challenged him to a game (actually three), and can confirm: yes. He’s very good.

Senior CWs Wanted: 160over90, CA & PA & FL


160over90 is on the hunt for senior copywriters to join their Philadelphia, Newport Beach and Gainesville offices. From 160over90: “Guess who’s writing this copy? That’s right, a senior copywriter! That’s like a regular copywriter, except with a minimum of two years experience! Fortunately, most of our senior copywriters rarely find themselves mired in the depths of agency website copy, instead focusing on crafting stories for everything from 64-page viewbooks to billboards to television scripts. You’ll work alongside designers to build new brands or further develop established ones. And you’ll get to present your own work to clients. It will be fun, I promise.”

For all positions, contact their creative recruiter Alyssa at: akasal@160over90.com
