Chase Zreet


Chase is a copywriter at Firehouse in Dallas. Bunch of killer projects up on his site for clients like Interstate Batteries (OMG the van), National Cheerleaders Association, and Nothing Bundt Cakes. But what’s featured above is not on his site. It’s a video cover letter Chase made back in the day to try to land a gig at Wieden on Sprite. It’s a rap video, which, I know, if you’re like MC you’re like “Oh no,” but oh yes. It’s really good. And it’s all Chase. Tip o’ the Hat, sir.

Copywriter Wanted: Up&Up, Greenville, SC


Up&Up in Greenville, South Carolina, is on the hunt for a copywriter. From Up&Up: “Our Copywriter will partner with our Art Director to form a powerhouse creative force, in order to create inspirational ideas and concepts that others only wish they could execute. We are seeking someone who can take the client’s idea and give it substance, direction, and content through dead-on creative strategy and a chameleon-like mastery of the written word.

What We Do

Up&Up is the only agency that creates brand experiences for universities who are unafraid of change, exhilarated by innovation, and desire to stand apart in a time when the competition for students and alumni dollars is growing from all sides and the perceived value of a college degree is being challenged. Our work heightens brand awareness, boosts applications, attracts better students & helps retain them, grows alumni engagement, and makes the case for donors to give.

Who We Are and What We Value

At Up&Up, we’re an agency that impacts the greater good. We get things done. We solve problems that are impossible to solve. And we want everyone to win. We call that being Tenacious, a Resolutionist and serving The Greater Good. We also believe we haven’t arrived, and there’s something to learn each and every day. We call what we are, a Conscious Culture. We believe there’s a different and a better way to do business. Primarily, that’s being transparent, vulnerable and showing up as your true self vs. your work persona. It’s about the journey, with the destination for you and our company to be the best we can absolutely be. Our conscious culture is committed to being radically responsible, curious and candid. But that’s just the beginning of the rabbit hole. If you’re open to being challenged, learning and discovering and revealing more about yourself than you thought was possible, then this might just be the place for you. If you think this is you, then please, read on.


  • Must be able to write clear, concise, and grammatically-correct copy
  • Drive the creation of original concepts—with the Art Director—that result in effective and compelling communication
  • Understand different language styles that appeal to various target markets
  • Develop and maintain clear and consistent brand voices
  • Stay on top of all trends and maintain best practices


  • 2+ years of experience
  • Refined writing skills, with the ability to change voice and tone at the dime of a hat
  • Stellar research skills, and the curiosity to continually learn
  • Excellent grammatical judgment
  • Creativity and superb communication to develop products that meet clients’ needs
  • Ability to prioritize work and manage deadlines
  • Strong understanding of industry trends and creative and content tools, such as Adobe
  • Creative Suite and GatherContent—among others
  • Understanding of User Experience (UX) philosophy and techniques is a plus


  • Healthcare
  • 401(k) Match
  • PTO + 12 days of Paid Holidays
  • Short Term/Long Term Disability
  • Cool office environment, located in the West End of Greenville
  • Leadership Development Training
  • Professional Development Budget
  • Relaxed and Collaborative Environment


This is a great opportunity for you to make a difference and join an agency with the purpose to impact people’s lives–including yours. We’re looking for a motivated Copywriter that is as passionate about great creative as we are, and even more so—someone who will write us into the future of change. Please note, this position is for Greenville, SC, and relocation is required. Greenville is a midlevel market, with estimated salary ranges between $40,000-$45,000. Please, only apply if you have 2+ years of work experience, your salary requirements meet this range and you feel your values are consistent with ours.”

That’s how you do it.

Michael Tully


Michael is a senior copywriter at Unbridled in Denver, previously at The Integer Group. Good copywriting is all about taking advantage of opportunities to tell good stories, whether that’s in a Super Bowl spot or on a bar coaster. Michael went all out on a series of the latter for Coors (above), aimed at showing off Colorado pride. And now MC is a little bit smarter.

Always cool to see some really nice storytelling, too—including Adam’s video for Michigin (above), made from juniper berries found on Beaver Island in Lake Michigan. Impossible to watch and not want a martini.

Ricky Lambert


Ricky is a senior copywriter at Suckle in Denver. All kinds of smart work on his site including projects for Lottery Scratchers and some killer outdoor boards (don’t miss his first project for Colorado Crisis Services, awesome). Because this is MC, we had to feature Ricky’s side project “The Idea-O-Meter” (above) because it’s just so perfectly copywriter. And so true.

Eric Gautschi

She’s worked with an eclectic mix of clients over the years, including Turner Classic Movies, Shutterfly, NBA City, CIBC Bank (North America), Cable & Wireless (Grand Cayman Island), and the North American Veterinary Community (above). Always interesting to see the difference between how a permalance creative executes their site (aiming for clients) versus an agency or in-house creative (aiming for a job). Dig it.
