Denver Ad School

Jesse Alkire, copywriter/CD in Denver (featured on MC back on 08.18.16, jessealkire.com), checks in with a big announcement. The new Denver Ad School is up and running.

From the DAD site: “A new school for explorers and risk-takers. Out west, nestled up against Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, sits a lone creative outpost. A place for the curious and the willing to discover how far their creativity can take them. To get here takes an audacious will, but any good creative knows that nothing interesting ever came out of playing it safe.

Before you seek us out, though, ask yourself one question — are you in search of an ordinary advertising school… or are you in search of adventure?”

Can’t wait to see the first set of grad portfolios!

David Butler

David is a copywriter at MKG (Experiential Marketing) in Brooklyn, NYC. All kinds of fun projects in his portfolio, which he’s designed to look exactly like a Gmail inbox (complete with easter eggs including the search bar, green minimize button, hamburger menu, etc.). Dig it. Also dig the photos of David’s foster dogs. High-five, DB. You’re good peeps.

Lucía Céspedes & Joan Rayó

Lucía (writer) and Joan (art director) are a junior creative team at TBWA\España. (Love having a Spanish team on MC again.) Their team portfolio is part produced, part student work—but mostly produced, and what’s produced is awesome. Don’t miss their campaign for Codere Apuestas, Real Madrid’s official betting company (above). Too funny.

Her student portfolio is super fun, bright, and optimistic—love the big, bold type throughout (beautiful typography). Perfect for a spring Saturday post on MC. Can’t wait to see where Natalie lands!

Eric Hansen

Eric is a senior copywriter/ACD at Colle McVoy in Minneapolis. All kinds of awesome projects on his site for Jackson Hole, Red Barron, Jack’s Links, Buffalo Wild Wings, and Schell’s Beer (above). Lots of really great headlines, too. (Can’t be a copywriter in Minneapolis for long without being able to write great headlines.) Got to like that.

Yosef Lerner

Yosef is a copywriter in NYC on the hunt for his next gig, previously at Chipotle and Flare Social. He’s also a member of the Upright Citizens Brigade, once again proving that comedians make good copywriters. Love the social posts all over his site (hilarious). Can’t wait to see where Yosef lands!

Chase Doutre

Chase is a senior copywriter at David & Goliath in Los Angeles. See, this is what happens on MC. Back on 05.12.14, MC posted Chase’s portfolio when he was a junior copywriter in Salt Lake City, Utah. Today, five years later, you click through his portfolio and it’s like, “Oh crap. This is so good. What have I been doing for the past five years???” Love it. Time for an update.

VCU Brandcenter Week: Katie Paxton

Katie is a new art director and a recent graduate of VCU Brandcenter. Her portfolio is full of super cool type treatments, including two long-copy campaigns (yesss) with new copywriter and fellow Brandcenter grad Mitchell Moss (portfolio here). As long as someone still loves to write long-copy ads, and someone else still loves to lay them out, the world is safe. At least, for now.

VCU Brandcenter Week: Sean Johnson

Sean is a new copywriter and a recent graduate of VCU Brandcenter. Know what’s fun? Going through a portfolio that’s so ridiculous, and so hilarious, you can just tell the creative who made it had a blast. So true for Sean’s site. Don’t miss his game “Horse Riding A Horse” and be sure to turn up the volume. Sean wrote the song himself. What a track.

VCU Brandcenter Week: Josh Browne

Josh is a new copywriter and a recent graduate of VCU Brandcenter. (Congrats!) One of the things MC admires about Brandcenter student portfolios is how deep they take each campaign. Joshua has five projects up on his site at the time of this post, and each of them goes and goes, idea after idea, all laddering up to the same simple strategies. Love that.

Ryan Prescott

Ryan is a senior copywriter in NYC. Cool variety of projects for some killer clients on his site, including Pepsi (“Nickname Everything” with Luke Kuechly of the NFL’s Carolina Panthers, above), Budweiser OOH, Bud Light, BIC, and Sony. Don’t miss his IG personal project, RP the Influencer, Ryan’s take on social influencer-ness. So painfully influential.

Sr & Mid-level Outdoor-minded Copywriters Wanted: Brothers & Company, Wichita, Tulsa or Oklahoma City

Brothers & Company is “on the hunt” for outdoorsy copywriters in three of their agency locations. If you’d rather be on a river or a hike than in the office—this one’s for you. From Brothers & Company:

“Brothers & Company is looking for senior and mid-level copywriters that get outside – golfing, hunting, fishing, hiking, skiing, camping, shooting and building a fire without looking like a city kid. We serve a solid roster of national brands in the outdoor recreation, sports and athletic categories, and authenticity is the lifeblood of our success. This is the stuff you can’t fake, and consumers can smell it from a mile away. We can too.

So, if the only thing that surpasses your passion for words is your love of the outdoors, this just may be your dream gig. Agency experience is required, and your book of work will start the conversation, but the stuff that gets you fired up is what will keep our attention.

About us? We’re a mid-size agency with offices in Wichita, Tulsa and Oklahoma City –  America’s heartland. And while location isn’t always relevant to an agency’s identity, ours defines the people and clients we attract. We believe in Friday night lights and American energy. The Second Amendment. That chivalry isn’t dead. And blue-collar workers keep this country sunny side up. It shows in how we approach our work, and how we serve the clients who entrust us with their business.  It’s not for everybody, but when it fits, you’re home, among likeminded people who work hard and play harder.  

If you’re ready to further your craft and your career on national television, print and web work that flows from your heart outside of work, drop us a line.  The interview just may be in a duck blind or on the golf course.”
