Steve Horn


Steve is a senior copywriter at Digitas in Chicago. He’s got fun projects for some fun brands on his site, including Maytag, Duluth Trading Co., KitchenAid, and Conan (above). Don’t miss the outdoor campaign he did for Conan in Berlin (and check out the video that goes with it). Hilarious.

Justin Cannon


Justin is a new copywriter (and cartoonist) in NYC after finishing up his second year of classes at SVA and AdHouse. He may be new to the creative side, but Justin’s got some real-deal agency chops after five years on the account side with DigitasLBi, Arnold, and BBDO/Organic. Can’t wait to see where he lands!

Nicole Corley


Nicole is a freelance senior copywriter/ACD in San Francisco after 10+ years at agencies like DigitasLbi and GSD&M. She’s got a killer variety of projects on her site, from bad-ass PlayStation God of War to Zales, John Deere riding mowers to fancy Luchesse Boots (above), Seton Hospitals to eBay. Dig it.

Mark Walter


Mark is a senior copywriter at DigitasLBi in NYC. Sometimes you click through a writer’s site and you can tell that the person on the other end of the portfolio just loves making stuff. Definitely the case with Mark’s site. After “Selected Work” (password for protected projects, including featured spot above, is ‘happy’), don’t miss “Side Projects” and “Etc.” Good times.

Brian Powers


Brian is an art director/designer/CD in San Francisco, previously at start-up Madison Reed in SF and DigitasLBi Chicago, Ogilvy Chicago, and Doner Detroit before that. He’s got a beautiful Squarespace site that shows off six brands/projects for Madison Reed, Bumble & Bumble, Dove, Interface, Jim Beam, and BP Stations. Dig it.

Mark Slater


Mark is a freelance copywriter/ACD in Boston with a brand new Squarespace site. One of the coolest things about looking through writer portfolio sites is seeing all of the ways that we market ourselves as storytellers. While most of us are now either on Squarespace or Cargo, the ways in which we tell our stories on those platforms can be very different.

Brad Meyers


Brad is a VP/CD/copywriter at DigitasSF. Since his last post on MC (way back on 09.06.12), he’s added all kinds of awesome work to his site including projects for Taco Bell, Playstation, and a bunch of comedy writing. If you’re one of the few who haven’t seen Taco Bell Blackout (above), don’t miss it. One of the smartest, bravest social media stunts ever. Just fantastic.

Pete Valle


Pete is a senior copywriter at Arnold Worldwide Boston. Lots of cool projects on his site for clients like SolarCity, Ram Trucks, Jack Daniel’s, Arbella Insurance, Progressive, Carbonite, Sprint, and WMBR (above). Love the airport baggage claim shredder for Sprint. So smart.

Mark Hohenschau


Mark is a writer/ACD at Y&R Chicago. Since his last post on MC (way back on 10.25.10), he’s revamped his site and loaded it with all kinds of new projects: Tyson Anytizers (above, “I’m starrrving!”), Dunkin’ Donuts, Progressive, Ocean Spray, Volvo, and more. Way past time for an update. Way past time for MC to heat up some Boneless Chicken Wyngz. Not kidding.

Kerry Skiles


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.

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!

David Locascio


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.

UPDATE: Brian Button


Brian is a copywriter in San Francisco. Since his first post on MC (March 2012), he’s moved from AKQA to Digitas and added some new work for eBay and Taco Bell to his portfolio — including a series of shorts for eBay called “eBay Thanks You.” Sometimes a story needs more than 30 or 60 seconds, you know? Also, MC would like Jonathan Adler’s beach house, please.

Lane Mitchell

Lane is a copywriter/ACD at Critical Mass in NYC, formerly at mcgarrybowen, Digitas, Hill Holiday, and FCB. Like many writers, he’s done some interesting stuff on the side, too.

Brett Minieri

Brett is a copywriter/ACD at Colangelo in NYC. Awesome mix of work on his site, from print to banners. Can we talk about banners for a second? The best way to show ’em? We think Brett’s nailed it. Motion screen capture, edited into a little video, and then posted on Vimeo. Easy for everyone. (NOTE: Motion capture software. We like iShowU. You can get it at shinywhitebox.com for $30.)
