Juror Spotlight

Kasen James
Senior Advertising Copywriter,

"I’m looking for work that has the potential to make people uncomfortable. 'If you try speaking to everyone, you speak to no one.' "

Kasen James is currently Senior Advertising Copywriter for GoDaddy, the world’s largest domain registrar and services platform for entrepreneurs. He’s responsible for helping GoDaddy sound smart across paid display and social media channels. Before joining GoDaddy in 2022, Kasen was a freelance comedy writer for The Harmon Brothers and the Head of Strategy for WireBuzz. 

Described as a “pun-slinging lyrical genius”, “creative fountain”, and “sideways thinker” – Kasen is fearless when it comes to helping brand voices sing on the world’s biggest stage (i.e. the internet). For the past decade, his ideas and words have been driving results for diverse clients including Apyx Medical, Argosy Cruises, Boston Comic Con, Boston Scientific, HashBone, and Fountain Life (Tony Robbins). His freelance creative work has so far earned him 13 industry awards (including a Davey).

What’s the last thing you saw that inspired you?
Take 5 Car Wash recently launched a campaign offering a free car wash to anyone who thinks the official Take 5 pigeon pooped on their car. The spot was produced by Erich and Kallman. It’s a masterclass in how to turn a small insight into a big execution.

What’s your dream project?
I’d love to be part of a campaign that runs from the billboards on the street to the Billboard charts. It would be awesome to write a brand single and/or make a branded music video, like Chevrolet’s “My Chevy Truck”.
