Creative Circus Week | Fall 2011 – Nikki Patel

Nikki’s anti-facial hair campaign for Gillette cracks up MC. So does her disclaimer above it: “This campaign does not represent the beliefs or ideals of Nikki S. Patel. Any potential employers that have facial hair should not trash her resumé on account of being insulted. We are sure Nikki S. Patel thinks facial hair looks extremely manly and rugged on you, kind sir/ma’am).” Smart move. Especially if she’s eyeing a shop in Boulder or Minneapolis.

Creative Circus Week | Fall 2011 – David Ma

I remember seeing David’s GRADMEN idea somewhere (created with fellow Circus grads Deanna Director and Mike Quattrocchi), and thinking it was genius. Doesn’t matter if they got Don Draper to speak at their graduation ceremony or not. They got to spend time with 50 working CDs at agencies most CWs would love to land in right out of school. Winner.

Creative Circus Week | Fall 2011 – Chip Kelly

Lots of student books include entrepreneurial ideas these days, which is awesome. What makes Chip’s extra awesome is the number if those ideas he’s gone and executed. You get the feeling he’s one of those creatives who just likes to makes stuff. Those are good creatives to have at your agency.

Creative Circus Week | Fall 2011 – Sara Steinberg

MC had the opportunity to meet Sara, along with fellow Circus grads Shannon Hollsten and Kristina Spaid, when they were in the Bay Area recently doing agency tours/interviews. Can’t say enough good things about the three of them. Can’t say enough good things about Circus, and how fast they are to respond to opportunities for their students. Tip o’ the hat to Kim Kurtz, Director of Career Services.

Tom Kelly

Tom is a copywriter/ECD at Brand Content in Boston. You know what’s great about portfolio sites? Versus the old portfolio portfolios? The archive section. If they love it, it’s like extra credit. If they don’t love it, it’s like, so what? It’s the archive section. (Plus, for writers, it means being able to include your fave headlines on one-shots, spec ads, oldies, and so-so art directed pieces.) Be sure to check out Tom’s archive section. Some awesome work in there. Glad we got a chance to see it.

Lee Hanson

Lee is a copywriter at Colle+McVoy in Minneapolis. His site is titled “THINGS I WRITE:” and his work is organized in categories that finish the sentence – “on bus shelters” and “on jumbotrons” and “for osteoarthritic canines.” Makes you want to click on all of them, just to see what’s what. Fun.

Chicago Portfolio School Week – Ben Klassman

Here’s a new one. How about a campaign for Toys-R-Us, targeting divorced/joint custody Dads, appealing to the fact that spoiling their kids might get them more face time? MC is still laughing.

Chicago Portfolio School Week – Lisa Norris

Check out Lisa’s campaign for Excedrin, celebrating famous holiday day-afters: May 6th, March 18th, July 5th. Great idea for a campaign. And the giant Wranglers billboard. And the Grain Belt reclining bar stool. Good stuff.

Chicago Portfolio School Week – Jake Thompson

Hello, Chicago Portfolio School Week! MC’s first, and we’re psyched. Kicking it off with The Book of Jake. Can’t tell you how many times MC has heard some version of this: “How come they don’t make copywriters who can write headlines anymore?” To which MC responds, check out Jake’s book. Ton of headlines in there, and more than a few are awesome.

Brett Minieri

Brett is a copywriter/ACD at Colangelo in NYC. Awesome mix of work on his site, from print to banners. Can we talk about banners for a second? The best way to show ’em? We think Brett’s nailed it. Motion screen capture, edited into a little video, and then posted on Vimeo. Easy for everyone. (NOTE: Motion capture software. We like iShowU. You can get it at shinywhitebox.com for $30.)
