Brian Cleary


Brian is a freelance senior copywriter in Los Angeles. Lots of web and print work on his Krop site, including several visual print campaigns for Yokohama tires. MC has received a bunch of emails lately asking the best way to find freelance writers based on location (including Los Angeles). All writers on MC are tagged with their location at the time of their post. So, all you have to do is scroll down the sidebar to the right until you reach LOCATION. Then find the city or country you’re looking for and click on it. Those writers will appear as their own page. That easy!

Steve Taylor


Steve is a copywriter in … well, he’s all over the place. From his site: “Throughout 2014, I’ll be plying my craft at advertising agencies across North America and documenting the entire experience as I go. It’s about discovering creative transcendence, experiencing native cultures and developing a new understanding of what it means to be a part of this crazy world we call advertising.” Awesome idea. Good luck, Mr. Taylor!

UPDATE: Scott Shalles

Scott is a copywriter/ACD at STIR in Milwaukee. Since his last post on MC (9/21/10), he’s put together a new site with all kinds of new work for clients like Cousin’s Subs, Milwaukee Riverkeeper, and Agnesian Healthcare. Check out his campaign for the Wisconsin State Fair, which includes a video featuring Bacon Boy, a talking pig doll, hunting for a Fair date (woman, not sow).

Matt Burgess

Matt is an acd/copywriter at Olson in Minneapolis. His site is the first time MC has seen gorilla actually represented by a gorilla. Love the animal stage show thing. (Why not?) Some fun surprises in his book too, like a TV spot featuring Burger King hand puppet synchronized swimming.

UPDATE: Van Horgen

Van is a copywriter/ACD at space150 in Minneapolis. He was on MC last year (12.09), but has a shiny new site, with interactive work from his first year at space150, that’s definitely worth a new post.

Dave Kwasnick


Dave is a CD/writer at Blattner Brunner in Pittsburg. He’s got fantastic campaigns for Zippo and Juicy Fruit on his site. He’s also got campaigns for Consol Energy and Navy Federal Credit Union that are harder working, but clean and smart. It’s nice to see a book with clients/brands that are a little more straight-forward, but who are buying work that’s portfolio-worthy. Tip o’ the Hat.
