Taylor Siolka


Taylor is a copywriter/acd at R/West in Portland. After checking out his portfolio (don’t miss the First Tech spot with the pen, “A pen. Notice anything different about it? No chain attached.” Yes.), click over to his Culture page and behold Cruisedays On The Roof, which is all about watching Tom Cruise movies on the agency roof. (See Ice Man ice sculpture above.) Warning: there’s a tight-whitey shot halfway down the page.

UPDATE: Ben Santoriello


Ben is a copywriter at Draftfcb in Chicago. Since his last post on MC, just after graduating from Circus (09.28.12), he’s spent time at INNOCEAN in Orange County and now Draftfcb. His book is in that in-between stage, part student and part produced, which MC digs seeing the most. So interesting to check out what writers create in school, and what that means in agency life, at this shop or that. Clicking through Ben’s site, MC totally remembered his school book vibe. And watching his FootJoy video, it’s like, yep, there he is—Bag Checking a pro golfer, just hoping to find Atomic Fireballs or Laphroaig.

Jenny Wagstaff


Jenny is a copywriter at Ogilvy in NYC, just over a year into it. Her book is in that part-student/part-produced stage that MC loves to see. Jenny’s got nine projects up on her site at the time of this post, three produced for UPS & Ferrari, Philips Norelco Social, and Big Ad Gig/Bully Prevention, plus six student campaigns. MC had no choice but to post a piece from her student campaign for Half Price Books, featuring The Cat In The Hat plus Gulliver’s Travels (originally titled “Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World. In Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of Several Ships” for the literary among us). ”Two books for the price of one.” Nice.

James Madsen


James is a copywriter/art director/CD in Milwaukee, on the hunt for his next adventure. Notice the CW/AD slash in his title. How many CWs have fantasized about having that slash? “I know my copy is great. It just needs to be designed different. If only …” and then you wake up, still seeing some ghost of the perfect layout in your mind, but not clearly enough to do it yourself, and besides, you don’t really know how to do type in InDesign anyway, even if you do know the kerning button. Dang.

Jason is a copywriter/CD at The Buntin Group in Nashville. He’s got my favorite all-time McDonald’s spot in his portfolio (above), which MC has no choice but to feature in his post—though he has plenty of new work in on his site, too. So good. Just so so good.

Jayant Savant


Jayant is Creative Copy Group Head at Publicis in Mumbai, India. How does a copywriter get a campaign of straight-up palindromes in his portfolio? When it’s a campaign for the Skoda Laura with Parktronic, which drives the same forward or backward. Tip o’ the Hat, Jayant. Palindromes!

Elizabeth King


Elizabeth is a copywriter/ACD at Kirshenbaum in NYC. She’s got tons of awesome work for BMW all over her site, and that’s really what MC should have featured above. But then, as Elizabeth put it, “Diamonds are a copywriter’s best friend.” Don’t miss Wall Street Journal Print, with side-by-side ads for the BMW 6 and 7 … Sterling, Draper … so good.

UPDATE: Bevan Mahaney


Bevan is a copywriter in NYC. Since her last post on MC (6.10.13), she’s added a bunch of new work to her site including “Spread the Jam” for the Jam Wireless Speaker. Which looks like a giant food fight (with different flavored jams) slash rave on the streets of NYC. At some point, there was a producer who had to order a permit for that. “So, yeah, we’ve got these buckets of jam …”

CWs Wanted: 160over90 Newport Beach & Philadelphia


Kay Sim, Talent Manager at 160over90, is on the hunt for copywriters at all levels for their Newport Beach and Philadelphia offices. From Kay: “We’re looking for ambitious copywriters to join our tight-knit creative department and continue pushing our work forward. Participation doesn’t begin after the brief is written; you’ll be a part of the research and client discovery meetings from Day One. Here, you’re more than a copywriter. You’re a thinker, conceiver, strategist, author, problem-solver, and architect of brands. When you do write, sometimes you will need to tell a compelling story throughout a university viewbook. Other times, you’ll craft a two-word anthem that will travel the globe alongside a swoosh. In between, there will be TV spots, billboards, websites, radio spots, print ads, t-shirts, Times Square displays, pop-up stores, and social media campaigns for clients like elite Italian automakers, sophisticated espresso machine designers, the Fighting Irish, and an Eagle.” To learn more about 160over90, check out their site by clicking the image above.
