Alec Brownstein Leaving Y&R

Copywriter/director Alec Brownstein, the man behind the Jerks in Your Area blog who famously landed a gig at Y&R New York last year via his soon-to-be award-winning Google job experiment (see below), is leaving said agency to go freelance. Brownstein, who was a senior copywriter at Y&R and whose last day there is this Thursday, tells us that he’s leaving on “excellent terms” and now it’s time to “explore and experience different agencies and make some more time for my personal projects.” Best of luck, mon frer.
