Bio


Joseph Meier

Professional Copywriter.
Amateur everything else.

 

Here's some places I worked

Munich Re, US - Princeton, NJ
Copywriter: November 2016 - Present
Wrote: Product Copy (Print, Digital) Internal and Corporate Communications (Digital, Email, Social, Video)

In my current role, I'm a general copy guy. I work for the american branch of the worlds largest global reinsurer (a business I had never heard of prior). I write, edit and proofread every kind of thing that is written here, and while I ghostwrite the occasional corporate blog post, or internal email, I'm the only specialized product copywriter in the company. It's wild.
 

JK Design - Hillsborough, NJ
Freelance Copywriter: July 2016 - Oct 2016
Wrote: Video, Print, Internal Communications
For: JK themselves, Johnson and Johnson, Arm and Hammer

Worked on internal communications for Johnson and Johnson, and Arm and Hammer. Also, by virtue of being in the right place at the right time, was able to take the lead on writing the agency's own branding video after only working there a few weeks.

 

Karma Agency - Philadelphia, PA  
Freelance Copywriter: March 2016 - June 2016
Wrote: Digital, Print, OOH, Radio Ads, Flyers Posters, Safety Videos etc.
For: Main Line Heath, The Philadelphia Orchestra, Longwood Gardens,           Trex, Peroxychem, Atrium Health and Senior Living

As one of only two full-time writers at Karma Agency, I was able to tackle some bigger projects (on top of the occasional gruntwork) and, under the direction of Tracy Thompson, even headed up writing duties on entire campaigns in some cases.

 

D4 Creative - Manayunk, PA
Copywriting Intern: Summer 2014
Wrote: Digital, Print, OOH, Non-traditional
For: K'Nex, Southern Breeze Sweet Tea, Unilife, Metrocast, Cure Auto
 

My greatest achievements include:

  • boosting my school's Honors Blog's (Honors Lounge) page views 200% by converting it to "Hodor's Lounge" the day of the Game of Thrones Season 3 premiere 
  • Interning for the CD of the "IDK my BFF Jill" AT&T ad
  • Hugging Ed O'Brien from Radiohead.
  • Discovering the milkshake with a hot slice of pie in it at Franklin Fountain
  • one time my professor who says she has a friend who writes for Mad Men also said I write well.

Right now, I am a fresh-faced, Philly-based writer (and designer for fun) who wants to make the kind of advertisements people want to see.
