Robert Borges

tyranny

Robert is a freelance copywriter/CD in Denver. One of MC’s favorite things about running MC is getting to see the different paths that writers take to becoming awesome writers & CDs. From Robert: “I’ve lived some life, been some places, worked mostly in the ad biz on some cool brands, at some cool shops. I’m a classic late bloomer: graduated college @27, took up fishing @28, snowboarding @32, Harley Riding @37, currently mastering the nuances of FB community management.” Yup. That’s how you do it.

Pete Kearney

verizonwow

Pete is a freelance writer/CD in NYC, previously ECD at Erwin/Penland. His site is deep (24 projects) and includes a crazy variety of killer work for Verizon—like the Verizon Wow Wall (above). Super impressive collection of projects. Dig it.

Eric Gorodetsky

blues

Eric is a copywriter at Epic Signal Chicago. Don’t miss his “Broken Resolution Blues” campaign for Meta Wellness above. MC is already singing them, and it’s only January 14th. To quote the above bluesman’s social media reply to @Molly: “A six-pack was a dream. Or that was what she thought. When it came to doing sit-ups, she said abs … solutely not.”

Lawrence Wang

Fiddle

Lawrence is a copywriter at SapientNitro in Boston. Four years ago, he landed his first gig at Breakaway after seeing a post about it on MC. (Love that.) Now he’s shooting the fiddle for Ram, making rich media banners for Fiat, and posting all kinds of “chicanery” around the office. Well done, sir.

Frank Cartagena

Frank Cartagena _3

Frank is a copywriter/creative director at Deutsch in NYC. Since his last post on MC (almost exactly five years ago on 07.29.10), he’s gone from junior copywriter at Hill Holiday in Boston, to Arnold, to DDB, to Deutsch, created some amazing projects, and won a billion awards. Don’t miss his work for WATERisLIFE, including HashTag Killer (above). Just awesome.

UPDATE: Phil Calvit

chop

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.”

Brian Cleary

largeidea-4f603a6e1025bc6

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!

Dan Jordan

steve

Dan is a copywriter/ACD at Calvary in Chicago. (Second City alert! Once again proving MC’s theory that comedians, drummers and surfers make great copywriters.) Fun stuff up and down his portfolio. One of MC’s faves is Chili’s “Open Letter” (above) reaction to Steve Carell and Paul Rudd’s spoof of LeBron’s famous “I’m going to Miami” ESPN interview. Steve and Paul end up describing/laughing about the letter on Charlie Rose. Genius.

Phil Calvit

united

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.

Dave Smith

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. Like being Editor of Capital, a lifestyle magazine for the financial services industry. You can click through an issue in the Editorial section of Lane’s site. Very cool.

Dan Jordan

Dan is a copywriter at David & Goliath in LA. Lots of killer stuff for Dunkin’ Donuts and Liberty Mutual on his site. In Digital, check out the Liberty Mutual 2099 Driving Game. Totally cool and unexpected for that client. Love when that happens.

John Reid

John is a copywriter/ACD at Butler Shine, CP+B and Cramer Krasselt before that. This, my friends, is a perfect Friday post. John’s got 20 killer projects on his site, some of them with as many as 10 pieces. Enough for Saturday and Sunday, too.

Sam Mazur

Sam is a copywriter/CD at JWT in NYC. His site just rocks. Couple of don’t misses: first two spots of Fatty Golf Open (hilarious!) and, in Info, scroll down and check out the Client History Map. Never seen that.

Rebecca Renner

Rebecca is a copywriter/ACD at AKQA NYC. Her site is super quirky fun. (Totally stole my theme song, BTW.) A little taste from her self-description: “West Virginia native but I still have most of my teeth. I’m allergic to cats, in need of a tan, and teach Easy Bake Oven cooking classes in my free time. (Very tiny meatloaves).” Want one! Don’t leave without checking out her Weird Fun page. It’s weird. And fun.

Tim Cawley

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.

Jed Alger

Jed is a freelance copywriter/CD in Portland, after 12-ish years as a CD at Wieden + Kennedy. If you’ve ever thought this would be an easy little blog to run, if you’ve ever thought, “Oh man, that Siciliano guy has it good!” I simply ask you to go browse Jed’s site and tell me which one piece you would choose to feature. Impossible. This is a brilliant portfolio.
