David Roth


David is a freelance copywriter/ACD/stand-up comedian in San Francisco. Since his last post on MC (11.06.13), David has focused on comedy and comedy projects—and his site totally reflects that. Which is both awesome and once again proves MC’s theory that drummers, surfers and comedians make great copywriters. Killer projects up and down his site, but don’t miss his first link, Stand-Up Comedy. So funny.

Matt Elhardt


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.

Over the past 10+ years, he’s worked and freelanced everywhere good: BBDO, Goodby, Leo Burnett, CP+B, 72andSunny, Facebook, EVB, David+Goliath, sheesh. As one might expect, he’s got the portfolio to show for it. Just fantastic. Don’t miss The Great Paper Airplane Project for the Pima Air & Space Museum. Genius.

Andy Lewis & Stephen Giem


Andy Lewis is a senior copywriter in San Francisco. He’s work-married to senior art director Stephen Giem and they’ve consummated the relationship with a joint portfolio site that’s hilarious and all love. It links out to their individual sites, which is a great way to do it. The couple is asking for whiskey or gin in lieu of gifts, which you can send directly to MC.

Scott Spooner


Scott is a copywriter at The Richards Group in Dallas. Since his last post on MC (05.15.12), he’s spent time at Goodby and Firehouse, added all kinds of projects to his portfolio, and is now back in Dallas at Richards. Don’t miss his transit posters for the National Cheerleaders Association (above) and his TV spots for Cisco—which explain a complicated product in a simple, engaging way. Awesome.

Brad Roseberry

Brad is a copywriter/Global CD for Accenture at TBWA Chiat/Day NYC. His resume is sick: Chiat, W+K, GS+P, BBDO, 180. His site is loaded with big campaigns for monster clients like Pepsi, GE, Adidas, Old Navy, and includes a couple of classics for Got Milk? and Airwalk. Good times.

Erik Fahrenkopf

Erik is a copywriter/CD at Goodby in San Francisco. He shares a portfolio site with partner/AD Anthony Decarolis, and their work is just ridiculous awesome. MC had a tough time selecting which piece to feature, but you can’t go wrong with Cheetos Flamin’ Hot fingers dialing 911. Brilliant.

UPDATE: Chris Ford

Friend of MC, genius copywriter and brilliant human being Chris Ford is back in the States (and the Bay Area) as CCO at Draftfcb. He’s also got a new Cargo site that’s just loaded. Welcome home, Ford.

Isaac Silverglate

Isaac is a copywriter/ACD at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners in San Francisco, previously at Droga5 in NYC. His link was sent in by David Roth (thanks, man) and MC knows why. Because it’s ridiculous awesome. Every once in a while, you click through a CW’s portfolio site and think to yourself, “No way. No way did a client let them do that. No way did a client pay for that.” This is one of those. Start with Combos TV. “What your Mom would feed you if your Mom were a man.” No way.

Larry Corwin

Larry is a copywriter/CD at BBDO NY, after four years at GS&P and three years at CP+B. Every once in a while, MC posts a site that just flat-out makes us jealous. This would be one of those.

Ryan Hartsfield

Ryan is a senior copywriter in San Francisco, previously at McCann and GSP (as an account guy). His site is based on a stack of paper. In his words, “One day I started cleaning out my files because they were moving us. So I started to stack up all my old briefs, dead ads, scripts, etc. into a neat little 8.5×11 pile. By the time I cleared out two years of shit, the stack was about three feet high. It looked too interesting to throw it away, so I taped it up. It became an art piece as a joke. I found a stand and put a $3000 price tag on it. I held a contest for names: “Dead Weight,” “Tower of Futility,” and the overly pretentious “Work”  are some of my favorites. I settled on “The Other 96%” because it represents all the bullshit we have to go through to make something that shouldn’t be as hard as it really is. Later I realized some of the better things I’ve done aren’t (theoretically) in the stack, so I turned the it into a site idea. And I suppose, in some way, made use of all the good n’ bad things in the pile that never came to be.” Love it.

Matthew Bottkol

Matthew is a copywriter/ACD at Dentsu in NYC. His mother, Joan, describes him as follows: “Matthew grew up in a wood clapboard house near downtown Minneapolis. But, these humble beginnings belie his enormous talents. He sang in the Metropolitan Boys Choir and taught himself to play Scott Joplin’s “The Entertainer” on piano. He started wrestling at age seven and was city champion by age twelve. He endured thirteen years of public schooling and got along with just about everyone he ever met. Needless to say, his talents have only multiplied with age. He’d be an invaluable addition to any agency. And I’m not just saying that because I’m his mother. Did I mention he’s also handsome? Feel free to call me if you’d like to talk about Matthew some more. You can get my number from my wonderful son who, by the way, never forgets to call me.”

Josh Lowman

Josh is a copywriter/director/CD in San Francisco. His portfolio is beautiful. If there’s a special creative aesthetic that thrives in SF – it’s beautiful. Maybe it’s the setting. Maybe it’s the people. Whatever the reason, the world is a better place for it.

Margie Chidley

Margie is a copywriter at GS&P. She shares a site with AD Megan Penmann. There’s a ton of fun stuff on their site, including “Mow The Lawn” for Quattro for Women and a vid + spots for Huggies Pull-ups. “One Big Kid. One Ancient Throne. One Unforgettable Journey.”

Lori Nygaard

Lori is a senior copywriter/ACD in San Francisco, formerly at AKQA, GS&P and W+K. She’s got a bunch of cool interactive work on her site that was done recently, so I apologize for featuring the old milk board above. (Couldn’t help myself.) How about Lori’s site? And old-school Blogger simply titled BOOK. Who needs a fancy site when you have fancy work?

Josh Gold

Josh is a copywriter/CD in NYC, previously at DDB, Martin, W+K, TBWA Chiat, and GS&P. Once again proving MC’s theory that surfers make stellar copywriters.

Scott Wild

Scott is a copywriter/CD in Chicago, previously at CP+B, Cramer Krasselt, Chiat Day, GS&P, Leagas Delaney, and W+K. His site is divided into two halves: Writer and Creative Director. Both are just stellar.
