Andrew is a freelance copywriter who left San Francisco to become an International Man of Leisure/Freelance Copywriter. He now resides in Prague, where he created the above campaign for Two Tales Beer—aiming to save the global economy (and the world) by belting America’s baggy pants, one beer at a time. Sounds crazy, right? Until you discover that Joe Satriani re-tweeted the campaign. Time to expand that title to International Man of Leisure/Freelance Copywriter/Evil Genius.
Phil is a copywriter/CD in NYC. One of MC’s favorite things is clicking through an awesome portfolio, recognizing killer work, but then discovering something new and amazing that MC hadn’t seen before. Like Phil’s video for Meetup. Beautiful.
Daniel is a freelance copywriter in [wherever awesome gigs appear]. His portfolio is ridiculous. Wieden, Crispin, Untitled Films Toronto … Volkswagen, Burger King, ESPN, Brahma, Levi’s, Best Buy, Little Trees Air Fresheners (?!?!) … just sick. Love it.
Nate is a copywriter at Leo Burnett in Chicago. Whole bunch of Allstate in his portfolio including TV, banners and print. How great is the Mayhem campaign? Great. He’s also got a Second City sketch that he wrote and titled, which ran for five weeks. Once again proving that comedian and copywriter are like peanut butter and jelly.
Travis is a copywriter at Amazon.com in Seattle, previously at Leo Burnett in Chicago. Lots of great work all over his site, including his Doritos campaign (above) “encouraging” moviegoers to snack on chips instead of popcorn. So scary!
Todd is a senior copywriter moving from Chicago to San Jose this month. The first project on his site is for Ziploc: “Will you prevail in a zombie apocalypse?” Um. Guess what. MC is going to survive a zombie apocalypse. Know why? Because sandwich baggies. Thanks to you, SC Johnson, A Family Company. And thanks to you, Mr. Shikora.
Lindsey is an in-house copywriter at Staples in Framingham, MA. There’s nothing MC digs more than an in-house CW fighting the good fight for a classic brand. From the holiday Snowbot to Alice Cooper to one of the best back-to-school spots ever (click here) to Lindsey’s Easy Button mailer (above), Staples has a voice that’s got to be fun to play with a writer. Nice.
Jason is a copywriter/ACD at TM in Dallas, where he’s been for 15 years (his entire career). MC loves that. Don’t miss his campaign for Captain D’s Seafood Kitchen. The acting performances in the first spot (above) are perfect. Like, perfect.
Ladies and gentlemen, MC is honored to present the portfolio sites of the 2014 Brigham Young University graduating copywriters below. (Would have done BYU Week, but already had posts scheduled and wanted to get this up ASAP after graduation — apologies!) Big thanks to Chase Lucero for coordinating. Congrats to all!

Bridget is a Senior Copywriter at Anson-Stoner in Orlando. Since her last post on MC (09.28.11), she’s got a new gig, a new site, a bunch of new work, and cool new side projects. Like her romantic cards rooted in reality (above). Or her films, Hear Something. Or her FREE Hot Poop sticker, which MC is hoping to acquire very soon. Time for an update!

Couple of weeks ago, MC was chatting with someone about CPR, about how all adults should know at least the basics, and that it was time to find a class. After reading Emily’s American Red Cross campaign (above), MC found a class and signed up. Just nails it.
On the back of Mariangela’s “The Official New Orleans Guide Of Who Not To Bring” there’s a quote by Mark Twain: “I have found out that there ain’t no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them.” Perfect quote. Hilarious project.
Zan’s campaign for Waze (“the crowd-sourced navigation app that helps you outsmart traffic and other traveling troubles”) features the line: “Three minutes late but thirty-three minutes earlier than the rest of the office.” Hello, every single day in San Francisco.
Sometimes you see a project in a writer’s portfolio and think, “I wish I’d done that.” Other times, you see a project in a writer’s portfolio and think, “I want to DO that.” MC has a high school photo from back in the day that needs Jordan’s Great Clips HAIR DO-OVER, so bad. So, so bad.
Big thanks to Lara for hooking up Creative Circus Week on MC. She graduates on June 20th with four other writers (big ups!), and then the future of advertising is in their hands. No pressure. Don’t miss her campaigns for Monopoly, Warby Parker (above), and Ford Fiesta. Good stuff.
