Clarence Bradley

hot

Clarence is a copywriter/CD currently freelancing at Apple in London. Since his last post on MC way back on 08.09.2010, he’s taken over the world. So many awesome projects in his portfolio. The first three had MC laughing out loud, including a genius campaign for American Standard, a super hot (not!) spot for Planet Fitness (above), and an amazing video for The Green Party in the UK. Awesomeness.

Mike Weidner

finalfriend

Mike is a freelance copywriter in Atlanta, GA. The work on his site is broken out into four categories (Consumer, B2B, Digital & Social Media, Recruiting), plus a page called Marcia & Me (Marcia Brady!), Awards, and Contact. Some cool projects on his Digital page, including NCAA Final Friend for AT&T, which looks fun, but also a possible nightmare—rejecting 63 Facebook friends. Yikes!

Jason Gonzales

chobani

Jason is a copywriter/ACD at FKQ Advertising in Clearwater, FL. Cool mix of projects on his site including work for Chobani (above), Stella Artois, Diageo, Ball Park, Ronald McDonald House, Chick-Fil-A, and a Chick-Fil-A site, LoveIsHere.com, “developed to encourage an ongoing, honest conversation about love, relationships, marriage, and family.” Once again proving MC’s theory that copywriters know everything about everything—especially relationships. (So kidding.) Good stuff.

miley-sprinkles_wildposting_melrose_stanley-final

He’s also added all kinds of new work to his portfolio, including MTV VMA campaigns (for which he’s won a bunch of Cannes Lions). Time for an update!

Heather Parke

bradley

Heather is a freelance copywriter/ACD in Los Angeles. Check out her rez and you can’t help but be a little jealous of the agencies she’s worked with and the brands she’s worked on. Sick, sick, sick. MC had a hard time choosing what image to feature in Heather’s post, but if you have the opportunity to get Bradley Cooper’s face up there, that’s what you do. Right? Right.

Circus Week Fall 2015: Joey Henson

jot

Joey is a new copywriter at BBDO NY working on Snickers (awesome) after graduating from Creative Circus. Don’t miss his case study for Post-it JotSpot, created with fellow Circus grads Ilana Wolstein and Hilary Smith. Such a perfect idea for Post-it. Such a good thing it doesn’t exist. MC’s 6th-grade daughter would be SO annoyed. “At the library? How’d you get so smart? Oh yeah, me!” Or, “In the kitchen? Hey, what’s that smell? You, acing your math test tomorrow!” C’mon, Post-it. Make that app.

Rick Abbott

mms

Rick is a freelance writer/CD in Miami. Since his last post on MC five years ago (03.19.10, how has it been that long?), he’s been very, very busy. M&M’s, Coke, Jet Blue, AT&T, Macy’s, Smirnoff, Acura, etc., for agencies like Crispin, RPA, Sapient, JWT, and BBDO. This is a good one.

Jeff Oswald

will2

Jeff is a senior writer/ACD at Cossette Chicago. Since his last post on MC (01.30.14), he moved from Jacobson Rost to Cossette, made a new site, and added new work—including a bunch for McDonald’s. MC wonders: How do copywriters who work on McDonald’s avoid eating McDonald’s all the time? Or is that just MC? Arrrg.

Tom Mandel

skip

Tom is a freelance copywriter in NYC, previously at Droga5 and BBDO. Lots of good stuff on his site for FedEx, including genius pre-roll spots (above) encouraging watchers to press the skip button. Why didn’t I think of that?!?! Arrrg. NICE.

Kerry is a copywriter/CD in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina. She’s also a good friend/former agency comrade of MC, from all the way back when Arnold had a San Francisco shop. (Was it really that long ago?) So happy to have her posted up, at last. Dig it.

David Locascio

sign2

David is a copywriter/CD in Atlanta. Don’t miss his social campaign for RaceTrac (convenience stores and gas stations in the southern United States) around their “endless bevy of fountain drinks,” for which David got to make up fictitious soda concoctions and name them—the ultimate dream job of every 13-year-old boy who ever lived in the southern United States. Good times.

Phil Gable

meetup

Phil is a copywriter/CD in NYC. One of MC’s favorite things is clicking through an awesome portfolio, recognizing killer work, but then discovering something new and amazing that MC hadn’t seen before. Like Phil’s video for Meetup. Beautiful.
