Five Guys is known for having fantastic burgers and fries but it lacks a brand voice.
An in your face, no
bull attitude as bold
as the flavor.
You can avoid the lines when you order Five Guys online for speedier pickup but now you won’t be able to avoid the snarky attitude and judgement that go along with your choices. Your ordering process will be entertaining with the commentary provided by Sam, who will call out every choice you make either congratulating you or taunting you.

VIBRAM Running Shoes
Convice runners that the shape of the human foot is the most efficient shape for running, as nature has proven.
Why trust those “top of technology” shoes that have only been in the making for 50 years when your own two feet have been proven to work for centuries and centuries.
travelers to venture somewhere new.
These travelers are no longer intrigued or excited by the onslaught of museums and historical sights or “Must Sees” in tour guide books. These travelers have a thirst for something more, something more vivid.
*Group work. Credit to Andrew Folts on co-writing and art direction
These travelers are used to travel guides sorted by cities or hobbies, let’s give them something diferent. Let’s guide them by color. Visitors to the Moroccan Tourism website will be able to chose a color and will then be guided to a page that shows them where in Morocco they can see that color in its most vivid forms.
Kleenex advertising seems to always be about colds and germs, but is that all that people use them for? Highlight another use for Kleenex tissues.
When life is tough,
Kleenex is there.
When a friend is upset and crying, you hand them a tissue. It’s a comforting gesture. Now, thanks to Kleenex, friends who can’t be there to comfort a grieving friend can still make this gesture virtually and send messages along with the tissues.
What the sender does:
What the friend sees:
When the recipient clicks to pull the tissues, their friend’s messages fly out as the tissues are pulling away.
HEAD & SHOULDERS
that Head & Shoulders
is beneficial to them.
When you have dandruff, you’re constantly worrying about it. When you use Head&Shoulders, you can focus on what actually matters.
*Concepting was a group effort. Since that time I have re-written many aspects and re-worked several of the tactics independently.
HEAD & SHOULDERS
Impromtu runway events will be heald in Millennial-heavy metropolitan areas. The Reverse Runways will feature models walking backwards, showcasing the hair on the backs of their heads instead of whatever clothes their wearing. The confidence they have is not in how they look or what they wear but rather comes from knowing that the back of their head is flake free and as fabulous as the rest of their appearance.
We’ve Got Your Back Mirrors
Branded hand-held mirrors will be placed in the restrooms of popular restaurants and bars for Millennials on dates, social outings or networking situtaions. These mirrors allow visitors to check the back or their heads by holding them up in front of the restroom’s large mirror, to make sure everything is just right.
Hair Check Pop-Up Washing Stations
These shops will invite passerby in for a quick wash and dry, courtesy of Head & Shoulders. The offering serves as a reminder of Head & Shoulders promise of confidence to go throughout your day without a worry of dandruff. Furthering the visual cues of this campaign, mannequins will be placed in the storefront facing backwards, reiterating that with Head & Shoulders you don’t need to constantly look back and can focus on what’s ahead.
Go ahead, check out the rear view. Finish out the evening knowing you look great from every angle. No dandruff, no worries.

Syracuse, NY (January 2014 - April 2014)
Elected as Creative Team Leader. Co-wrote our Mary Kay campaign plans book. Presented our campaign to industry executives. We placed 2nd at the regional competition in New York City. Apparently you don’t get a trophy for being the winner of the losers.
FREELANCE COPYWRITER Brunner Advertising

Continuing to write quality copy that is consistently being produced. Known as that girl who e-mails about projects at 3 a.m.
COPYWRITING INTERN Brunner Advertising
Pittsburgh, PA (Summer 2013)
Wrote for 25 billable projects. Got lucky, had two billboards and three print ads (and various “grunt work” projects) produced. Got unlucky, fell up the stairs and spilled coffee on my fourth day.
CREATIVE TEAM LEADER The NewHouse Ad Agency

SERVER Goldstein Faculty and Alumni Center Restaurant
Syracuse, NY (Spring 2012 - Present)

COPYWRITER Creative Advertising Courses
Syracuse, NY (Fall 2012 - Spring 2014)
Progressed through three level curriculum. Passed portfolio review board of industry creatives. Developed the standard “I went to Newhouse” superiority complex (I’m working on it).
Terrified of birds.
Talked my way out of an arrest warrant in Spain using my sub-par level of Spanish.
Barely dodged German police officers checking for train tickets I did not have. My friends weren’t so lucky.
Starting to realize I have an issue with foreign authority.
Resisted switching to iOS7 until January ‘14 because I didn’t like the colors.
I’m not a fan of bacon. Sue me.
