Dan is a senior copywriter at Publicis in Seattle. Since his last post on MC (on 01.21.13), he’s added all kinds of killer projects to his site, including MC’s favorite Super Bowl spot of 2016 featuring Drake for T-Mobile. Awesome script, Drake is brilliant, plus “Can we come in the box?” at the end. Doesn’t get better than that.

Amy Marshall, Talent Director at Hornall Anderson, is on the hunt for a copywriter. From Amy: “Hornall Anderson (Seattle office) is looking for a copywriter. Writers at a design shop? Say what? What will you write, you ask? All of the things.
If you haven’t thought about writing at a design shop before – twirl it around upstairs. We might be biased, but we offer opportunities to work with some amazing brands (like REI, Madison Square Garden, PepsiCo, Starbucks, Marmite, and Virgin Atlantic – and so many more) partnering with them to tell their stories. Naming, brand messaging/positioning, narrative, brand voice, print, packaging, digital, environments, campaign work – the variety of work is almost endless. We are strategy and concept driven with an equal amount of importance placed on craft. Work hard. Play hard. Respect.
And, our headquarters is in Seattle. C’mon. Amazing.”

Tina Mainar, Director of Human Resources at GreenRubino in Seattle, is on the hunt for a senior copywriter. From Tina: “We’re looking for a kick-ass senior copywriter/concept guru. The ideal candidate is a master wordsmith and idea generator who knows how to present/sell them to clients and makes nice in the sandbox. Writing TV, radio, print and online film is essential. You’ve likely graduated from an advertising program or possess a Bachelor’s Degree in some form of communications or humanities. At least 5 years experience and a strong portfolio is a huge advantage, but if you’re a recent graduate with an incredibly strong portfolio, we would love to meet you. We also love that you’ve written poetry, but don’t need to see it just yet, if ever.”

Sharath is a copywriter at Creature in Seattle. Lots of hilariousness on his site, including projects for Oberto Beef Jerky, Microsoft Surface, and a piece for Timothy McSweeney’s Internet Tendency. MC wonders: has the tweet/social media post become the new “headline” for copywriters? Hmm …

Ryan Ruelos at GreenRubino in Seattle is looking for a copywriter. From Ryan: “GreenRubino is seeking qualified candidates for the position of Copywriter. If you are passionate, collaborative, idea-driven, slightly askew, and fanatical about words, ads, brands, and building experiences, please contact us. We are an integrated, Seattle-based, firmly rooted and fiercely motivated advertising agency and branding firm, so versatility is an essential skill-set. Our ideal candidate is an idea person and a master wordsmith—fluent in short, smart, wry, insightful points-of-view; plus can also produce tight, crisp long-form copy and online content when called upon. If you toil unceasingly in perfecting headlines and loathe cliched, tired, ‘cute’ twists of phrase, you’re likely the right fit for us. Experience in writing television, radio, and online film work is favorable. The right candidate will likely have graduated from either an art or advertising program or possess a Bachelors Degree in some form of communications or humanities. 2 – 4 years of advertising agency experience is a huge advantage, but if you’re a recent graduate with a very, very strong portfolio, we would love to meet you. (Please note that we are not seeking editorial writers at this time.) About GreenRubino: full-service communications firm-slash-marketing commune founded in 1977. Our experience, growth and results have established us as one of the Northwest’s most successful and respected agencies.”

Torin is a copywriter at Wexley School for Girls in Seattle (and has slept there “approximately nine times”). How much does MC dig his Microsoft Kinect for Windows project? The most. Recruiting engineers with a bacon cart outside Amazon and Google HQs. Balls. Genius + balls.

Yutaka is a copywriter at Creature Seattle, CP+B before that. His work sucks. (Not really.) His site sucks. (Not really.) He sucks. Or, that’s what his site proclaims. Absolutely, positively hysterical. Love it love it love it.
[UPDATE.01.19.2010: Yutaka is no longer at Creature, he moved back to Japan]
