VCU Brandcenter Week 2012 kicks off with The Secret Hiding Place of Bri Hand. So much to love in her book. Be sure to check out Google Search Stories, a project she did while interning at Google Creative Labs. Awesome.

Nick is a senior copywriter at Razorfish in Portland. Click into his Print section and ahhh … hello there, copywriting. Nice to see you again. There are a few cities that just seem to make better copywriters: Minneapolis, San Francisco, Portland. Nick’s portfolio is proof again.

Kelly Poulson, HR Director at the Brownstein Group in Philly, is looking for copywriters. From Kelly: “Creative word people! You bright elusive things!

Tyler is a senior writer at JacobsonRost in Chicago. First campaign on his site, for Mercury Marine Edge, is a real deal long copy print campaign. (They still make ’em!) Add a QR code in the lower right corner and you just made an interactive long copy print campaign. New old school. How’s about that?

Right from Kate’s site, because MC couldn’t write it any better: Should we address the elephant in the room? “Is this middle name real? Danger? Are we dealing with delayed adolescence? Is she going to be trouble? Can she bake?” Well to answer: yes, yes, no, sort of, and yes*.

Justin’s campaign for Febreze features cartoon characters—who wear the same clothes all the time—spraying their clothes with Febreze and the tag, “Wear it more than once.” Genius. And don’t miss Zippo Burn Box, which torches the Facebook posts of your ex after you break-up. Also genius.

Check out Meredith’s fun escalator overlay for Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest: a never-ending stream of hot dogs, escalating down into an open mouth. Why does that make MC hungry for chili dogs and tater tots? Because MC is always hungry for chili dogs and tater tots, of course.

Can’t graduate in 2012 without an iPhone app in your portfolio. Nikolaus has one of the coolest MC has ever seen. Flip The F*ck Out turns your iPhone into a skateboard. You do tricks, flipping it with your hand, for points. Love it.

Ann is a copywriter/ACD at Euro RSCG in Chicago. The title of her site is “Fearless Copywriter in a Twisted World.” MC likes that. It is a twisted world. And CWs do have to be fearless when it’s time to put the words down on the paper. Or type the pixels onto the screen. Or present the stuff to the room. Or click open the email with the subject line “RND 1 FEEDBACK” with the red “!” next to it.

Marcelo is a copywriter at Euro RSCG 4D in São Paulo, Brazil. So fun to see the cool work coming out of São Paulo for brands that, in the States, are pretty straight. Check out Vanish, Finish, Veet and Trident. Are Brazilians just cooler than Americans? What a ridiculous question.
