Steve Horn

conan

Steve is a senior copywriter at Digitas in Chicago. He’s got fun projects for some fun brands on his site, including Maytag, Duluth Trading Co., KitchenAid, and Conan (above). Don’t miss the outdoor campaign he did for Conan in Berlin (and check out the video that goes with it). Hilarious.

Jimmy McDonald

dennys

Jimmy is a copywriter at EP+Co in NYC (formerly known as Erwin Penland). He’s got a crazy variety of projects on his site, from Soup People talking through cans for Progresso, to a Beat Box Torture Test with Rahzel for Lenovo, to super sweet spots for Cheerios, to The Grand Slams for Denny’s (above). Dig it.

Michael Tully

coors

Michael is a senior copywriter at Unbridled in Denver, previously at The Integer Group. Good copywriting is all about taking advantage of opportunities to tell good stories, whether that’s in a Super Bowl spot or on a bar coaster. Michael went all out on a series of the latter for Coors (above), aimed at showing off Colorado pride. And now MC is a little bit smarter.

Adam Barr

michigin

Adam is a freelance copywriter in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Always cool to see how perma-lance creatives present their work versus those looking for full-time agency or in-house gigs. Always cool to see some really nice storytelling, too—including Adam’s video for Michigin (above), made from juniper berries found on Beaver Island in Lake Michigan. Impossible to watch and not want a martini.

Max Schein

checkers

Max is a copywriter at Fitzgerald & Co. // McCann in Atlanta. At the time of this post, he’s got six awesome projects on his site including Buy Back The Block for Checkers (above) featuring Rick Ross. Such a fantastic idea. Good for Checkers. Good for Carol City, Florida. Good for the world. Love it.

Thanh Ngo

adsventure

Thanh is a new copywriter in NYC after graduating from Miami Ad School. His site is titled “Adsventures” and it is an adventure—starting with a beautiful video intro and then a long scroll down through “trips” (projects). Very cool.

Merry Christmas

reindeer

Happy holidays from MC (circa 1977 above). Here’s hoping that you get a break, that it’s amazing, that you spend it with people you love, and that there’s a good book in there somewhere. Cheers!

Brittany Kittredge

chicken

Brittany is a junior copywriter at Walrus in NYC after graduating from Creative Circus in Atlanta. At the time of this post her portfolio is still 100% student spec and 1000% hilarious. If you’ve got a smartphone, don’t miss her “Chicken Cooker” app (a holiday must-have). And be sure to follow her @thisoldshirt Instagram account. So good.

Ricky Lambert

pencil

Ricky is a senior copywriter at Suckle in Denver. All kinds of smart work on his site including projects for Lottery Scratchers and some killer outdoor boards (don’t miss his first project for Colorado Crisis Services, awesome). Because this is MC, we had to feature Ricky’s side project “The Idea-O-Meter” (above) because it’s just so perfectly copywriter. And so true.

Last call for 2017 portfolios

peter_locke_modern_copywriter_tshirt

Happy holidays, fellow copywriters! Got something special planned for early 2018. MC is going to feature our first annual “Best of 2017” in a bunch of categories that only copywriter nerds like us would dig, including “Best Written URL.” (Told you.) What does it take to enter? Great question. All you have to do is have your portfolio posted on MC in 2017. That’s it. So send in those portfolios, pronto—and good luck!

Eric Gautschi

beer

Eric is a copywriter/CD/managing partner at The New BLK in Omaha. Lots of killer work on his site for well-known brands like Airbnb and Nissan, and smaller brands like Lucky Bucket Brewing Co. (above) and Omaha’s Brickway Brewery. So cool to get to see a great book filled with work that most of us (outside of Nebraska) wouldn’t normally get to see. Dig it.

Justin Griggs

selfish

Justin is a freelance art director in Virginia on the hunt for his next thing. As always, MC loves to see how an art director/designer brings words to life and Justin’s got some nice typography in his book (check out his Athleta project and separate “Fun” page). Also, don’t miss his Photography page. (NOTE: Password for HP project is “Justin”.) Good times.

Jane Harrison

spreadoneNAVC

Jane is a long-time freelance copywriter/CD in Orlando (but willing to travel). She’s worked with an eclectic mix of clients over the years, including Turner Classic Movies, Shutterfly, NBA City, CIBC Bank (North America), Cable & Wireless (Grand Cayman Island), and the North American Veterinary Community (above). Always interesting to see the difference between how a permalance creative executes their site (aiming for clients) versus an agency or in-house creative (aiming for a job). Dig it.

Ben Phillips

lawnman

Ben is a senior creative at TBWA\Manchester. Since his last post on MC (07.23.2015), he’s been busy. He’s got a killer-looking site (Squarespace), including an awesome video reel landing page. Love all of the amazing characters in his portfolio, from Neal the Sofaworks sloth, to New Westland Safelawn’s Lawn Man (above), to Glen the rentalcars.com Rental Car guru, to Ben’s dog who dances to Def Leppard (not kidding). Time for an update!
