Mike King

chipotle

Mike is a freelance copywriter/ACD in Denver. Is there anything better than clicking through a copywriter’s site and finding real-deal headlines all over the place? Yes. Discovering that there’s a whole page (“Headlines”) of bonus headlines, right next to a page of rejected Onion headlines. Dig it.

Cameron Day

bag

Cameron is a freelance writer/CD in Austin. He’s the son of Guy Day (co-founder of Chiat/Day) and the “PAST” page on his site is a who’s-who list of amazing clients and agencies. Clicking through his work, you see why—great writing all over the place. So what does MC choose to feature? A grocery bag, of course! It just perfectly sums up what a copywriter’s portfolio should be about. You may spend 30 years writing the hell out of everything from Super Bowl TV to Rolling Stone print, but in the end it’s that grocery bag you nailed that makes it to the top. Great writing is great writing, no matter where it appears. Love it.

Robert Borges

tyranny

Robert is a freelance copywriter/CD in Denver. One of MC’s favorite things about running MC is getting to see the different paths that writers take to becoming awesome writers & CDs. From Robert: “I’ve lived some life, been some places, worked mostly in the ad biz on some cool brands, at some cool shops. I’m a classic late bloomer: graduated college @27, took up fishing @28, snowboarding @32, Harley Riding @37, currently mastering the nuances of FB community management.” Yup. That’s how you do it.

From Dina: “Director with small production company on the hunt for copywriters to collaborate with to create some beautiful, memorable, heart-tugging, emotional storytelling spec spots.

Spots will be directed by me, through my company and I’d like it to be an involved, collaborative process. You will have a full res copy for your reel as well.

Although this is spec work, I’m willing to pay for each script that I shoot.
