VCU Brandcenter Week 2011 – Simon Philion

Another stand-up comic. Another affiliation with the Upright Citizen’s Brigade. Another killer student book proving that: #1 Comedians make awesome copywriters and #2 VCU is one of the top copywriting schools for comedians on the planet.

VCU Brandcenter Week 2011 – Rebecca Ullman

Check out Rebecca’s cool campaigns for Foursquare, Hanes, Mini Thrill Rides, and Carfax. Love the writing of her site, too. Rebecca’s got a wicked smart, snappy voice that’s just fun to read. Almost as fun as her Visual Addendum page, featuring the above photo. Quality.

VCU Brandcenter Week 2011 – Adam Wolinsky

VCU is so hooked into the industry, you know that themes in VCU student books are themes agencies are asking to see. In Adam’s, one of those themes is loud and clear: crazy innovation. Or, outlandish entrepreneurial strategic grenades. Something like that. He’s got an end-of-the-world campaign for Costco, Get Gay Married human rights campaign, one for an even faster version of Ramen, and a New Balance race for seniors called The Geriathlon.

VCU Brandcenter Week 2011 – Claire Wyckoff

MC has often said that surfers make good copywriters. Surfers and drummers. Got another one to add to that list: comedians. Don’t know if she surfs or drums, but Claire is funny. Before VCU, she studied improv at Middlebury College, and at Improv Olympic and Upright Citizen’s Brigade. It shows. Smart, hilarious, fantastic writing all over her portfolio.

Craig Miller

Craig is a copywriter/CD at CP+B. The work on his site is presented as a simple reel, or downloadable reel/book. If you’re like MC, you see copywriter/CD at CP+B and you’re like, “Oh damn. This one’s going to kill.” Guess what? It kills.

Ryan Raab

Ryan is a copywriter at CP+B. As David Roth, copywriter and friend of MC put it, “probably no person with 2.5 years of experience with more work to show for it.” (Thanks for the heads-up, David.) Wow.

Will Gorman

Will is a copywriter at Venables Bell in SF. Been there four years, after graduating from Circus. Check out his ComedyFetish.com campaign. Sick. In PRINT/OOH, check out his Slim Jim T-shirt. Brilliant.

Jeff Nieberding

Jeff is a copywriter at Saatchi in Los Angeles. Sometimes you see a piece in someone’s portfolio and you’re just like, “Oh wow, check out that salad car. Dangit, I want to make a salad car!”

Jane Koh

Jane is a freelance copywriter in Madison, formerly at Leo Burnett. Her portfolio is classic Burnett, featuring work for Special K, Go-Tarts and Secret. Click into Broadcast and then scroll down to Go-Tarts. Casting is priceless.

Jim Real

Jim is a copywriter/CD in Los Angeles. His site is hosted on Krop. Love how the horizontal slider lets you nav through integrated campaigns quick and easy. Each starts with a simple set-up card, then goes big pieces to outer reaches. He’s also got a deep radio selection, which has become a rarity on writer sites. Tip o’ the Hat.

Greg Hunter

Greg is a copywriter/ACD at Firehouse in Dallas. He’s got a brand new site that’s loaded with killer work. Don’t misses: Spike TV, Full Throttle + NHRA, K-Y, and Mother Candles.

Jose Funegra

Jose is a copywriter/ACD at CP+B in Boulder. Check out the above spot for Pepto Bismol, which Jose wrote at Leo Burnett Lapiz in Chicago for the U.S. Hispanic market. Burrito, mobster, burrito, Frankenstein, burrito, alien, burrito. Oh, and the burrito is a romantic burrito. Now that’s a script.

Steven Nasi

Steven is a copywriter/CD/VP at McCann NYC. You know what’s awesome? When a CD with the credentials, portfolio and experience that Steven’s got includes a campaign on his site that’s all about making “the 5th floor of Ogilvy’s old office a livelier place.” Love it.

Jeff Van Zandt

Jeff is a copywriter/ACD at Cramer-Krasselt in Milwaukee. (Brand new gig, big congrats Jeff.) Check out this note to Jeff from Jason Alexander, after Jason received Jeff’s first script for his Jenny Craig Video Blog, “Jeff, I am literally blown away. Brilliant. I couldn’t have said it better. You truly got my voice down. I have no notes and anyone who knows me knows that is a first. It’s perfect. Go with it and thank you. If I ever run for office you are hired as my official speechwriter. Happy holidays. I’m telling my wife that I am blown away or in the words of George, ‘I am speechless. I am without speech’.” Nice.
