Drake is a new copywriter in Chicago, just finishing up an internship at DDB. All kinds of interesting clients in his portfolio including AppleJacks, Deering Banjos and Kohler Music Showerheads. How has MC never heard of music showerheads—showerheads and speakers in one, like shampoo and conditioner in the same bottle? Hello, Santa Wish List.

Sarah is a new copywriter after recently graduating from Chicago Portfolio School, and is now freelancing at DDB Chicago. This is what it’s like for the kids these days. Sarah’s got a campaign for Orville Redenbacher Ready-to-Eat Popcorn that’s all about how much easier it is than microwave popcorn. Wait, you mean we need something easier than microwave popcorn?! But. But. In her ad above, it’s equal to the difference between typewriters and computers. But I. I just. (Sigh)

Jose is a copywriter at Dieste in Chicago. He’s also a professional skateboarder who did some time at Second City. (Proving once again that drummers, comedians and surfers/skateboarders make great copywriters.) So cool to see how writers like Jose jump from one ad culture to another—and one language to another. A good idea is a good idea.
