Reagan is a senior copywriter/ACD in New York. So many killer projects on her site. Peyton Manning for DIRECTV, “Never Again” for PIXMA, Nexcare Nana vs. Car Wash, and the one and only MC Hammer for Command Hooks (above). Dig it!

Rich is a copywriter/ACD at Downtown Partners Chicago. Since his last post on MC five years ago (04.03.10, has it really been that long?), Rich has spent time at Cramer-Krasselt as the lead writer on Porsche—I really hope that means he got to drive one for free—and then moved to Downtown Partners. And took his Cayman with him??

Chris is a junior copywriter at GSD&M in Austin. The first project in his portfolio is an adorbs holiday spot for Walgreens called “Cookies For Santa.” MC’s favorite part? The minivan cranking a spinout into its parking space out front of a Walgreens. Which means they had to hire a professional stunt driver to do that. Which is just rad.

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.”

Haley is a new copywriter at GSD&M, fresh out of Creative Circus (fantastic first gig). Which means that we get to see what kind of student work a shop like GSD&M is digging right now. Like Haley’s Two Men and a Truck campaign. Maybe it’s due to the number of moves MC has gone through over the past few years (lots), but love that one. Especially the wallscape. So on the money.

Tyler is a senior writer at JacobsonRost in Chicago. First campaign on his site, for Mercury Marine Edge, is a real deal long copy print campaign. (They still make ’em!) Add a QR code in the lower right corner and you just made an interactive long copy print campaign. New old school. How’s about that?

Rich is a senior copywriter at Mullen in North Carolina. The biz card above is so cool I wanted to feature it in his post, but it’s not really representative of Rich’s work. He’s a headline writer. A good one. That’s so rare these days, I feel like I should put it in all caps. ALERT. AWESOME HEADLINE WRITER.

Felipe is a copywriter/creative consultant in Los Angeles, formerly an ACD at Saatchi. He’s got a ton of great Toyota work on his site, but check out his stuff for the Surfrider Foundation. Wow.

Ashley is a senior copywriter at Saatchi NY, GSD&M and Chiat before that. Her site is minimal. Her work is hilarious.

Adrian is one half of an Austin freelance creative team with AD Rochelle Raiss. Before that he did time at GSD&M and CP+B, with a stint in Barack Obama’s presidential campaign sandwiched between the two. Adrian and Rochelle call themselves Third Culture Kidz, which they describe on their site as “someone who, as a child, has spent a significant period of time in one or more culture(s) other than his or her own, thus integrating elements of those cultures and their own birth culture, into a third culture.”

Allen is a copywriter/CD at GSD&M in Austin. He’s got some great BMW stuff on his site, including the online movie/event “The Ramp” which was forwarded to me 1,342,468 times. For good reason.
