The Super Awesome Description award is a way of recognizing a member of the Zappos Development content team once a month. If a product description is particularly witty or creative, anyone in the company can nominate the person who wrote it. The nominations are then read by other members of the content department and voted upon; the description with the most votes wins. The writer of that description is rewarded with a trophy and a certificate, not to mention recognition from their peers.
The winner for March is Amber O. Amber is part of the fashion team and her quirky description for the Betsey Johnson Yacht Club Necklace was too amusing to ignore. Congratulations Amber!
We asked Amber a few fun questions to get to know her better. Check out her answers below!
What is your biggest Grammar pet peeve?
A: Run-on sentences. Epic misspellings. "These is"
What is your favorite color?
What inspired you when writing this description?
A: I got to thinking, “Could I legit wear these? I’ve never even been on a yacht.” So I wrote the description for people like me. You know, to make me feel better about wanting to wear yacht-themed earrings.
What's a fact people would be surprised to learn about you?
A: I’ve always wanted to be a dancer. Or better yet, I’ve always wanted to be good at a dancing video game. Either way, I’m no good.
