  • Working directly with our Art Director, Copywriter, Associate Creative Director, Executive Creative Director and other creative team members to lead and support ideation, develop original concepts, campaigns and commercials for our clients. We strive for big ideas that drive real results for our clients—from impression and PR-driving brand campaigns to response and conversion driving performance campaigns.
  • Writing cross-medium copy for our creative – mainly scripts for commercials (6s, 15s, 30s, 60s), but also social content, taglines, and more. You should be adept at understanding how video lives differently on different channels, and able to adapt your writing to those best practices.
  • Ensuring our campaigns and commercials are engaging, consistent and that the core message is clear throughout all related content.
  • Presenting and defending your ideas to clients—as a small team, creative team members have ample face time with clients at Quirk

  • Have 2-5 years’ experience in a creative position (agency experience is a must)
  • Be a grammar fanatic
  • Be able to adjust and adapt your writing style to different brands, industry verticals, projects, audiences and tones. You’ll be working on each and every client that comes through our doors, so versatility is key.
  • Be excited to work in a small team where you have tons of responsibility and room to grow
  • And you should be an absolute self-starter with a get-the-job-done mentality.

 

You may:

  • Be interested in growing your career into commercial directing; all creatives at Quirk can opt into a track where they grow into directing the commercials we craft
