Caroline Lee

Caroline is a copywriter at MTV in NYC. She gets to put words in Beevis and Butthead’s mouths for a living. So awesome. In honor of its awesomeness, we shall reprint here Beavis’s famous class Haiku:

Huh huh, huh huh huh
huh huh mmm, uh huh huh huh
huh huh, huh huh huh.

Jason Rappaport

Jason is a copywriter/ACD/VP at McCann in Los Angeles. MC saved this one special for the holiday, because it’s deep (22 projects) and fun. Think of it as an excuse for getting away from the fam for a little breather. “Going to go down to the basement for a few, Uncle Herm. Got to check out this big portfolio site.” Don’t forget to grab a bottle of something on your way down. And a turkey leg.

Jason Siciliano

MC is two years old this month. To celebrate, I’m doing something I’ve never done before. I’m posting my own site. Which is both exciting and terrifying. To everyone who’s sent a link to MC over the past two years, the CWs, friends of CWs, schools, students, CDs, ADs, spouses, and that one Mom, thank you. It’s been a blast. Let’s keep it going.

CWs Wanted: Barkley

Theresa Thornhill, recruiter at Barkley in Kansas City, is on the hunt for CWs. From Theresa, “Barkley is the largest employee-owned advertising agency in the US. Ownership has its advantages. So if you’re looking to work with people who have skin in the game, we might be a pretty good fit. We’re looking for a conceptual, collaborative thinker who’s able to put big ideas on paper. Your book is filled with big ideas presented in a simple, direct format. Your style is undetectable because you take a fresh approach for every brand and every assignment you take on. You’re comfortable (and good at) writing short copy and headlines…short and to the point.” Send your link and rez to Theresa at the email below:

Theresa’s email: tthornhill@barkleyus.com

BONUS: Barkley’s also looking for an ACD/CD-level freelance team to potentially go full-time.

The agency has done award-winning work and is poised for new very-high profile client wins. Very collaborative working atmosphere and the CD is focused on mentoring his people, so there’s no waiting for the top guy to see your stuff.

Caroline Reed

Caroline is a senior copywriter at Digitas in Chicago. Don’t miss: Starburst. So true: the asterisk* on her Post adult cereals campaign. “Try talking about the natural advantage of fiber without having it sound like poop.” Word.

Brent Anderson

Brent is a copywriter/CD at Meers in Kansas City. You know what looks awesome in a portfolio? Photos of work in real life. Almost all of the campaigns on Brent’s site are presented in awesome photography, and it just looks stellar.

Max May

Max is a copywriter at WAX in Calgary. Yes, it rhymes. What do you do when you’re handed a brief for boring insurance? If you’re Max, you make a boring campaign (above). Great line, from Max’s Calgary International Film Festival campaign: “Film Festival? I think my wife already donates to them.”

Caroline Chen

Caroline is a digitally-inclined copywriter/designer at Denuo in Chicago. It could be an old-school thing, but whenever MC sees a portfolio that lists someone as a writer/designer, we hold our breath. Caroline is the real deal though. Plus, she’s got the digital thing. Can someone say “extremely marketable in the current industry environment”? MC can.

Erin O’Connor

Erin is a copywriter at The Richards Group in Dallas. She graduated from Portfolio Center in 2010, so her site has both of student and produced work—16 campaigns in all. So cool to see what someone did in school, and then what they do as soon as they land. Such an awesome time in the CW journey.

Jessi Hamilton

Jessi is a senior copywriter at Kuhn & Wittenborn Advertising in Kansas City. Explore her site and the links on it, and you’ll find about 50% copywriting and 50% other writing: blogs, poetry, posters, etc. Which makes sense, seeing as how she started life as a magazine writer/editor. Copywriters come from everywhere. MC likes that.
