James is a copywriter/acd/creative head at Big in London. He shares a site with art director/creative partner Tim Jones, and they’ve added a bunch of new work since their last post on MC (01.09.12). Don’t miss Domino’s Pizza DomiCopter. If Domino’s did that in the States, MC would be ordering pepperoni and pineapple every night.

Oliver is a copywriter in Richmond, VA, previously at Martin. His site is built with readymag, the first on MC (pretty sure). Looks great. Also, it allows Oliver to step you through his portfolio in the order he wants, which is cool. Dig it.

Christian is a copywriter at Publicis Mojo in Brisbane, Australia (MC’s first from Brisbane), but most of the work on his site is for Vietnamese clients. Which MC finds fascinating. Any other Australian CWs interested in submitting? MC would love to see more.

Jarl is a copywriter/director in San Francisco. His site changes every time you visit. Sometimes projects are represented by heads. Sometimes garbage. Sometimes … well, you’ll see. (Fun.) Once you get into the site, there’s a huge range of work to check out, advertising and film. Dig it.

Steve is a copywriter at Biggs/Gilmore in Kalamazoo, MI. (Kalamazoo!) His Crunchy Nut UNofficial Cereal of Celebration campaign celebrates fake holidays throughout the year, like Alien Abduction Day and Read in the Bathtub Day. Basically, whatever holiday Steve invents. How fun is that?

Prashant is a freelance sr copywriter in Chicago. You know, when MC used to think of Supercuts, MC thought $8. Or, now it’s probably like $20. (Who is MC kidding? It’s exactly $20 at the Supercuts in Corte Madera, CA.) So, it’s refreshing to see a Supercuts campaign featuring up-and-coming rock stars/DJs that doesn’t mention price. Probably pretty awesome for Supercutters out there, too. Nice.
