Mate is an interactive copywriter in Stockholm, after recently graduating from Berghs School of Communication. (Note to self: must host Berghs Week on MC.) Lots of smart, awesome ideas on his site. Don’t miss Mercedes Future Cell, where he turns old cars into an artificial reef. Amazing job putting the video together. Wow.

Cassidy is a copywriter/ACD at Tris3ct in Chicago. (Portfolio submitted by friend of MC Alan McCoy, big ups.) Super clean presentation of her work, and such a writer-ish way to present it. All words: category columns, campaign groupings, individual titles. Did I mention super clean? Maybe that’s because Cassidy is not only a writer, but has been doing a lot of work recently for toilet tissues? (Sorry. Had to.)

Craig Likhite, Vice President/Creative Manager at CK Chicago, is looking for a mid-level copywriter to work on Corona, Panera, Hilton, Cedar Fair, Porsche, and other (awesome) accounts. From Craig: “CK is looking for a mid-level copywriter. What’s a mid-level copywriter? You’ve done some things. You’d like to do more things. Some of your things are good. You’d like your next ones to be great. You’ve worked on this and that. You’re looking to work on this, that and the other. TV. Radio. Digital. Whatever. The more curious, the better. Oh, and mid-level copywriters can’t be assholes. They have to be seniors to be assholes.” Amen. If you’re interested, contact Craig directly at the address below.

Nick shares a couple of campaigns with Niki Naboulsi (featured Tuesday), as happens when you’re in school, sharing resources, collaborating, etc. MC likes the teamwork. Anyway, also on Nick’s site be sure to check out: NASA, Fantasy Trainwrecks, and U of O Advertising. Love to see all of the real-life books being made and shot for portfolios. Love to see print alive and well, in any form. Very cool.

So interesting to see the trends running through CW portfolio sites at different schools. From Oregon, lots of poetry and beautiful video. (Not unexpected, with the W+K influence.) As an Oregon alum, I love Tyler’s time-lapse piece “Miniature Eugene.” Ah, Eugene.

Oregon is Oregon, and you know when you go through an Oregon site there’s going to be some stuff that’s just out. Because that’s how Ducks do it. You also know you’re going to find stuff that’s just fun. Like Niki’s “Sweaty Little Secrets” campaign for Champion sweatpants. Or a page of pics of Oregon students, and when you hover over them, they laugh. Good times.

What do you want to see on a graduating copywriter’s site (in addition to great writing)? How far from “five campaigns plus a video” can they go? What’s relevant and what’s not? Physical artifacts of their dreams? Unsolicited signs out in the wild? Do those count? MC thinks yes.

Marcelo is a senior copywriter at Ogilvy São Paulo. Fun fun fun fun fun. All kinds of fun work all over Marcelo’s site. For his post, it was between the above and one of his Huggies print ads, featuring ET poops and pees in UFOs battling against laser-weilding diaper aliens. Such a tough call.

Sarah is a copywriter at Mullen in Winston-Salem, NC. Her book is right at that stage when it’s half-produced (four projects), half-spec (five projects), and you get to see both. Fun for those of us looking through it, but a painful time for creatives. What goes in? What comes out? Produced is worth more than spec, but by how much? Arg.
June 6th, 2012
Marta is a copywriter at DoubleYou in Madrid. She got Microsoft to spend who knows how much to convince Julia, a young Spanish woman, to take back Alejandro, her mess-of-a-boyfriend, in 30 days. Just as Hotmail is asking users in Spain to take it back. Ah, that’s love. MC loves the love. And loves that Microsoft loves the love, too.
