What does a copywriter do?

A copywriter is a modern storyteller. A problem seeker, a raconteur, an entertainer, a brand-building wizard…all rolled into one.

Working together with an Art Director, you’ll master the art of collaborative creativity, inventing new concepts every to satisfy your client’s communication needs.

You’ll create websites, billboards, TikTok campaigns…anything to deliver your message. In copywriting, the only limitation is your imagination.

“Doing is the best way to learn. M.AD encouraged me to make things that I may not have otherwise tried. Practicing under such talented mentors gave me confidence work through unfamiliar processes."
