Amanda is a copywriter at Rokkan in NYC. (Her site was submitted by Jeff Samson, CD at Rokkan, big ups!) Love her campaign for Birthday Wishes (above)—a non-profit that throws birthday parties for homeless kids. So good. And don’t miss her Eyeconic campaign featuring real paid actors as testimonial spokespeople. Imagine!

Alex (writer) and Tara (art director) are a creative team at 360i in NYC. Check out the animated series “How to Turn a Meeting into Eating” they made for the new Subway (above, featured on both of their sites), for which they did everything but the animation—including performing and recording the music, doing the voiceover, etc. Love that.

Casey is a copywriter at RPA in Los Angeles. All kinds of killer projects for BMW on her site from her time at kbs+ in NYC. Don’t miss her new 360-degree music video for the Honda Civic featuring Moses Sumney (great track). NOTE: You need to watch it on Chrome or Firefox to get the 360-degree-ness. So fun.

Nick is a freelance senior copywriter/ACD in New York City.

Lots of cool projects on his site for Uniqlo, Mercedes-Benz and others. Don’t miss DefundRefund—his side project funding Planned Parenthood in honor of the GOP politicians vowing to defund it.
