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 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.

Andrei is a copywriter/VP, Brand Creative Director at MTV in NYC, which sounds like the coolest job ever. Since his last post on MC back on 03.02.12, Andrei moved to New York, worked at Anomaly and Grey, and now leads MTV’s in-house creative department. 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!

Andrew is a copywriter/GCD at Story in NYC. Since his last post on MC (way back on 09.21.11), he’s got a new site, new gig, and a whole bunch of new work for clients like Verizon, Audible, Vevo, Google, Chapstick, and Mentos. Don’t miss his beautiful campaign for Popsicle (above) celebrating summer. Is it really almost over? How’d that happen so fast?

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 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 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 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.

Finishing up MC Updates Week with Howard Hill, a senior freelance copywriter in Los Angeles. Since his last post on MC (03.12.13), Howard’s added some new work to his site including a new brand campaign for LifeLock and some Sony Xperia digital work. Update time!

Since his last post on MC three years ago (08.24.11, has it been that long?), Ryan’s moved back to the States—after 6+ years in Shanghai—and put together a new Cargo site with killer work all over it. Time for an update!

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 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.

Jeff is a copywriter/ACD at Jacobson Rost in Chicago. The first two projects on his site feature Conan and Will Ferrel for Bud Light. Does that make MC jealous, getting to shoot with Conan and Will Ferrel? And beer? No. No, no, no. Course not. Maybe. Little. Yes.
