(Would have done BYU Week, but already had posts scheduled and wanted to get this up ASAP after graduation — apologies!) Big thanks to Chase Lucero for coordinating. Congrats to all!

Bridget is a Senior Copywriter at Anson-Stoner in Orlando. Since her last post on MC (09.28.11), she’s got a new gig, a new site, a bunch of new work, and cool new side projects. Like her romantic cards rooted in reality (above). Or her films, Hear Something. Or her FREE Hot Poop sticker, which MC is hoping to acquire very soon. Time for an update!

Couple of weeks ago, MC was chatting with someone about CPR, about how all adults should know at least the basics, and that it was time to find a class. After reading Emily’s American Red Cross campaign (above), MC found a class and signed up. Just nails it.

On the back of Mariangela’s “The Official New Orleans Guide Of Who Not To Bring” there’s a quote by Mark Twain: “I have found out that there ain’t no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them.” Perfect quote. Hilarious project.

Zan’s campaign for Waze (“the crowd-sourced navigation app that helps you outsmart traffic and other traveling troubles”) features the line: “Three minutes late but thirty-three minutes earlier than the rest of the office.” Hello, every single day in San Francisco.

Sometimes you see a project in a writer’s portfolio and think, “I wish I’d done that.” Other times, you see a project in a writer’s portfolio and think, “I want to DO that.” MC has a high school photo from back in the day that needs Jordan’s Great Clips HAIR DO-OVER, so bad. So, so bad.

Big thanks to Lara for hooking up Creative Circus Week on MC. She graduates on June 20th with four other writers (big ups!), and then the future of advertising is in their hands. No pressure. Don’t miss her campaigns for Monopoly, Warby Parker (above), and Ford Fiesta. Good stuff.

Dan is a copywriter/ACD at Calvary in Chicago. (Second City alert! Once again proving MC’s theory that comedians, drummers and surfers make great copywriters.) Fun stuff up and down his portfolio. One of MC’s faves is Chili’s “Open Letter” (above) reaction to Steve Carell and Paul Rudd’s spoof of LeBron’s famous “I’m going to Miami” ESPN interview. Steve and Paul end up describing/laughing about the letter on Charlie Rose. Genius.

Chris is a copywriter at MRM McCann in Frankfurt, Germany. Bunch of cool microsites in his portfolio, including five for Opel. Don’t leave without checking out his crazy Snackball machine for GranataPet. They need to have a contest where you can win one of those things for the backyard, your very own auto dog feeder and fetcher. Just make sure to duck before the tennis ball launches—dangerous!

Marc Greengrass, COO of Flint and Steel in NYC, is on the hunt for junior to mid-level copywriters. From Marc: “Who are we? We are a seasoned shop with start-up nerve. Why? We’ve recently bought ourselves back from one of the big agency conglomerates, in an attempt to challenge the definition of what a marketing champion can be. This has given us renewed autonomy and creative freedom. We are democratic, intolerant of mediocrity and creating ideas that range from gaming, Sundance awarded films, category-shifting TV campaigns and more. And we’re doing it for clients including Pepsi, NASCAR, Topps, HBO and others.
Who are you? A young, passionate thinker, in the business for 0-4 years, who wants to experience real satisfaction in their job. A person for whom writing and creativity isn’t just a profession, it’s a calling. A person who wants to leverage all their varied interests to create things that are truly meaningful. You can concept big, think fast, and aggressively contribute to an inspired culture that wants and needs you.”
Yes? Send your link to Marc at: email@example.com

It’s been about a year since Rich’s last post on MC (04.15.13). Since then, he moved from Boston to NYC where he’s done some killer work and overhauled his book. Don’t miss his stuff for Tommy John men’s premium underwear (above, so smart). Time for an update!

Carrie is a new copywriter (just graduated from Chicago Portfolio School) at The Food Group in Chicago, former comedian, and excellent casserole maker. Plenty of hilarity all over her site, like her Hungry Man campaign (love the Vine), but don’t leave without watching her video resume. Disappointed!
