James Maravetz


James is a writer/director at Storyfarm in Baltimore. Since his last post on MC (08.07.14), he’s been busy. From James: “After years of working as a Creative Director at big agencies like Crispin and Saatchi, I decided to pursue my dream of directing commercials myself. I moved to Baltimore and took over the creative and directing duties for a film production company called Storyfarm. With my advertising experience, combined with Storyfarm’s production capabilities, we’ve created an interesting niche for ourselves as a hybrid ad agency/production company. Now I’m writing and directing content directly for clients, usually without an agency go-between.” Dig it.

Keith Saunders


Keith is a freelance copywriter/ACD in NYC. He’s got a crazy mix of projects in his portfolio, including the above National Geographic-inspired video for DSW. Which is exactly how MC feel shopping for kicks there. (Nailed it.) He’s also included a page for his Quarter-Career Gap Year, which is just a brilliant idea for all writers. Love it.

UPDATE: Vlad Ivangorodsky


Since his last post on MC, New York art director/creative director Vlad Ivangorodsky has gone full-time freelance and has added a bunch of new work to his site, including the above GoDaddy spot for Barton F. Graf 9000 (that almost made the Super Bowl). Always love posting Vlad’s site up on MC, even though he’s not officially a copywriter. Good ideas are good ideas are good ideas.

UPDATE: James Maravetz & Vlad Ivangorodsky


Since their last posts on MC, James Maravetz (01.28.13) and Vlad Ivangorodsky (honorary AD 10.15.12) have combined their insane portfolios into one super insane portfolio site. MC found it impossible to choose which project to feature, there’s so much killer work, but what’s above seemed appropriate. In athletics and creative, you can’t until you can.

James Maravetz

James is a copywriter/CD at Crispin in Boulder. (This is a good one, kids.) All kinds of fantastic work on his site for brands like MetLife, Xerox, Arby’s, Vitaminwater, and Under Armour (campaign for women—nicely done, sir). Don’t miss the bottom link, ME/WORK EXPERIENCE. Loud, proud and …

UPDATE: Greg Gerstner

Greg is a copywriter/CD at Ogilvy NY. He’s got a brand new site and a bunch of new work to go with it, including an interactive touch wall for IBM at the US Open, and three new spots for IBM. But honestly, there’s so much killer work in Greg’s portfolio, any excuse to post it again is a good excuse.

Greg Gerstner

Greg is a copywriter/ACD at Ogilvy NYC. Love how his site is written. Nothing on the home page, just clean. History and Honors is thorough but minimal. For each campaign, there’s just the right amount of set-up (when set-up is needed). And credits are fully blown-out, awards show-style.

Martin Peters Ginsborg

Martin is a freelance copywriter in NYC, after having spent time at McCann, mcgarrybowen, Cliff Freeman, D’Arcy and Wunderman. Lots of big idea visual print campaigns in his book. My fave is his Sketchbook (in Extras, third column down). You get to see inside Martin’s brain. Which, no coincidence, is full of big idea visual madness, and I mean that in a very good way. Wish more copywriters included sketchbooks – or something like them – on their sites. How great would it be to see a Janet Champ, Brock Davis, or Max Godsil sketchbook?

Laura Fegley

Laura is a copywriter/CD at JWT in NYC, Cliff Freeman before that. On her site you’ll find The Most Interesting Man In The World, what it means to be Gingery, and one of my fave all-time spots for Mercedes, “Re-incarnation.”

Grant Smith


Grant is a freelance copywriter/CD at Handsome Advertising, BBDO NY before that, Cliff Freeman before that. He shares his site with creative partner Richard Artdito. Their book almost forced me to break my “one piece per post” rule. Their Red Stripe campaign is amazing. They also did a Budget Moving Truck campaign (in their Alternative Media section) that’s equally amazing. In the end, I choose beer over trucks. Go figure.
