Jeff is a copywriter/creative director in Boulder, CO, who is looking to move to Los Angeles, CA. Don’t miss his crazy fun spots for MapQuest, including “your way of out hell” (above). That’s how Jeff is going to feel every day on the 5 in LA. Kidding! (Not kidding.)

Derek is an art director/designer/creative director in San Francisco. (MC met Derek in SF two weeks ago, good peeps!) Great mix of art direction and design on his site, include a bunch of projects for Macy’s. Don’t miss his photo art direction page, some really beautiful work (including the photo above, MC wants to live there). Dig it.

Mike is a copywriter/CD at JWT in Chicago. So much great video on his site, including Illinois “Mancations” with Bill Kurtis, Illinois Made, and St. Louis Children’s Hospital (above) which might have had MC in tears once or twice. Or three times. Very nice.

Vidhi is a copywriter looking for opportunities in NYC after recently moving to the States from Argentina where she was a creative lead at Mother Buenos Aires. Killer variety of projects on her site, including short films for Renault (above), a PETA video featuring Pamela Anderson, Colors Magazine (where Vidhi was an editor), and the beginnings of The Global Warming Cookbook (and possibly pop-up restaurant). Dig it.

Lindsey is a copywriter at Brand Content in Boston, previously in-house at Staples (last post on MC 07.03.14). In a world that’s spinning a little negative at the moment, it’s so nice to see someone using their copywriter powers for good. Lindsey’s no-budget School The World campaign generated 7 million views in one week for a non-profit that builds schools for kids in developing countries. More of that, please.
