Matt is a freelance writer/CD based in Malibu, California. Holy smokes has he worked everywhere good: Apple, Wieden+Kennedy, Fallon, 180la, Leagas Delaney, Goodby Silverstein & Partners, Media Arts Lab and Crispin Porter + Bogusky. At those shops, he’s done killer work for Apple, Nike, Netflix, Subaru, adidas, HP, Coke and CNET—including the classic spot above. So awkward. So genius. One of MC’s all-time faves.

Tim is a freelance copywriter/CD in Minneapolis. Over the past 20 years, he’s worked at shops like Fallon, Carmichael, Arnold, Burnett, and Saatchi (geez), on more awesome accounts than MC can list here. Don’t miss his classic campaigns for Citi Simplicity Card and the VW Beetle, including the above spot “Squares.” Brilliant.

Phil is a full-time freelance copywriter in Minneapolis. Since his last post on MC (03.10.14), he’s added new work to his site and some new shops to his already stupid experience list. From Phil: “There’s no getting around it: I’ve been writing ads and ad-like things for a really long goddamn time. Since 1986, I’ve created stuff for pretty much every conceivable industry, in pretty much every conceivable medium—at, I would contend, a pretty consistently high level. And to think that this kind of experience, and this level of wordsmithing, are available on a freelance basis to one and all…the mind reels.”

Bridget is a Senior Copywriter at Anson-Stoner in Orlando. Since her last post on MC (09.28.11), she’s got a new gig, a new site, a bunch of new work, and cool new side projects. Like her romantic cards rooted in reality (above). Or her films, Hear Something. Or her FREE Hot Poop sticker, which MC is hoping to acquire very soon. Time for an update!

Phil is a freelance copywriter in Minneapolis. Over the past 20+ years he’s spent time at just about every great shop in Minneapolis, including Barrie D’Rozario Murphy, Carmichael Lynch, Fallon, Hill Holiday, and Leonard Monahan Lubars. He’s also written a bunch of work that makes MC flat-out jealous, like the above spot for United, with VO by Robert Redford. Geez.

Jarl is a copywriter/director in San Francisco. His site changes every time you visit. Sometimes projects are represented by heads. Sometimes garbage. Sometimes … well, you’ll see. (Fun.) Once you get into the site, there’s a huge range of work to check out, advertising and film. Dig it.

Bridget is a copywriter in Orlando. The first piece in her portfolio is a spot for Nemours Children’s Hospital. The 19th piece is the above ad for North Star Roller Girls. Couldn’t be more different. Love that part of being a CW. This week you’re getting paid to learn everything there is to know about helping kids who need it. Next week, you’re on roller skates.

John is a copywriter/CD in Minneapolis, formerly at Martin Williams and Carmichael Lynch. In Television, click on Staples and watch the second spot. One of my all-time faves.

Casey is a copywriter at Publicis in Seattle. He’s got a new Cargo site and a bunch of new work on it, including the now world famous Erotic Bakery Boner Cupcake campaign thing social media grosstrosity. How can you not laugh? You just can’t. Not laugh.

Erik is a copywriter at Risdall in Minneapolis, previously at Brooklyn Point, Martin Williams and Carmichael Lynch. Don’t misses: Crumpler Custom Bags vid (cool to see someone actually making the custom bags) and letters from Hell’s Kitchen NYC to OJ, Manson and Skilling.

Tim is a copywriter/GCD/VP at Hill Holiday in Boston. There are many sites on MC that make me jealous, but this one is way up there. So much great TV. I think I’ve watched “Karate” like 30 times now. And Miller Lite “Epidemic” (I can’t taste my beer!) is just awesome.

Scott is a copywriter at Carmichael Lynch in Minneapolis, Energy BBDO before that. If you’ve visited MC before, you probably know that I have a thing for remedial video games, having grown up in the Pong Generation. Scott’s made a good one. “Man Luge.”

Linda is a freelance copywriter in Minneapolis. Before going solo she spent time at Carmichael Lynch, Martin/Williams and Fallon. There’s a smart, gritty edge to a lot of her work: Harley-Davidson, Museum of Death, E*Trade, Mediawise, awesomeness.

Brian is a freelance copywriter/CD in Minneapolis. Before going solo he spent time at Fallon (Group CD), CP+B, Carmichael Lynch, and Martin/Williams. Books don’t get much better than this, and I’ll just leave it at that. [Pause] Okay, one more thing. I remember first seeing the above outdoor board with my art director when I was still in SF. We both just freaked out. One of my fave lines EVER. Okay. Done now.

Brock Davis is an art director/Group CD at Carmichael Lynch in Minneapolis, and MC’s first Honorary Copywriter. Check out the top link on the left: msced09. It stands for “Make Something Cool Every Day” which Brock did every day of 2009. Scrolling through it will blow your mind. Killer idea after killer idea.

Kent is a copywriter at CP+B, and was at Carmichael Lynch, element79 and DDB Chicago before that. His site is a classic blog format, everything on one page, which I find super easy to navigate. He’s got a great mix of work in his book, including a slick new site for Diamond Crystal Salt, hilarious Ted Ferguson TV and Real Men of Genius radio for Bud Light, and a campaign for Harley-Davidson featuring Marissa Miller. Enough said.
