Taylor Crane

flashy

Taylor is a copywriter at J. Walter Thompson in Houston (safe and sound after Hurricane Harvey). As one might expect from a Texas-based writer, he’s got a bunch of projects for Mobil and Shell on his site. He also has awesome crowd-funding videos for Kickstarter/Indiegogo, including Flashy Backpack (above, hilarious), which MC needs like now.

Mark Walter

shaq

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.

Their portfolios are loaded with big-name clients like Farmers, Chevy, Kaiser Permanente (above), and Wells Fargo, along with some cool surprises like Thomas + Friends and the Institute on Aging. Psyched to have them up on MC.

Mike Beamer

slch

Mike is a copywriter/CD at JWT in Chicago. So much great video on his site, including Illinois “Mancations” with Bill Kurtis, Illinois Made, and St. Louis Children’s Hospital (above) which might have had MC in tears once or twice. Or three times. Very nice.

Rob is an art director (JWT, Leo Burnett, Creative Circus) turned photographer who now shoots full time. You can see the AD influence in his photography—including his projects Childhood Cancer Superheroes, 2016 Wheelchair Softball World Series, and RIC Hornets Wheelchair Basketball (above). Very cool.

Brian Alexander

jager_1080_256c

Brian is a copywriter at Deutsch in NYC. Since his last post on MC just after graduating from Miami Ad School (way back on 07.18.11), he’s been busy. According to his About page, “Brian is from North Dakota. It was cold. Now he lives in Brooklyn where his writing appears in The New Yorker*, his advertising work is in the permanent collection at The Museum of Modern Art** and he is the host of All The Brians, a podcast where he interviews people named Brian for no reason***.” MC will leave it to you to read the other side of those asterisks. (Heh-heh.)

Chris Baier

laptop

Since his last post on MC just over five years ago (03.27.11), Chris has been busy. He became a CD, joined eBay, worked on a bunch of their site builds, wrote design playbooks for eBay and PayPal, and developed his own social media app called Hashtag Spy. Way overdue for an MC update.

Hugh Gurin

snoop

Hugh is a freelance copywriter in San Francisco (and a good friend to MC). Really dig the writing in his portfolio. Smart, sharp lines, video and radio up and down his site for brands like EAT24, Personal Capital, Oakland A’s, Dropcam, and Blue Shield. Good stuff.

Derek Bishop

shiner

Derek is a copywriter at McGarrah Jessee in Austin. All kinds of great work on his site (Indexhibit), including tons of quirky awesomeness for Shiner beer, plus YETI, Guitar Center, and Merrick dog food. Don’t miss “Jump” for Merrick. Could watch that all day.

Rick Abbott

mms

Rick is a freelance writer/CD in Miami. Since his last post on MC five years ago (03.19.10, how has it been that long?), he’s been very, very busy. M&M’s, Coke, Jet Blue, AT&T, Macy’s, Smirnoff, Acura, etc., for agencies like Crispin, RPA, Sapient, JWT, and BBDO. This is a good one.

tweedie

Craig is a copywriter/CD in Boston. Since his last post on MC (05.30.14), he’s gone full-time freelance and is willing to travel. He’s also added some new work to his site, including Water Critic Arthur Tweedie for PUR (above). Time for an update!

Jim Morrissey

banner

Jim is a copywriter/creative director at O’Brien Advertising in Denver. His site is called The Good Endeavor, aptly titled with projects for Banner Health, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Colorado hospital/anti-tabacco initiatives, and QuitDoingIt.com, a cool-looking site to help young adults quit smoking.

Craig Miller

dj

Craig is a copywriter/SVP/Group CD at Arnold Worldwide in Boston. Since his last post on MC (04.22.11), he moved from Crispin Porter + Bogusky in Boulder to Arnold, and added a bunch of new work to his portfolio—which just rocks. It’s one those sites where you go, “Oh, that campaign. And that campaign. And he did that campaign, too. Geeeez.” Just awesome.

Elizabeth King

db.bacon1

Elizabeth is a copywriter/ACD at Kirshenbaum in NYC. She’s got tons of awesome work for BMW all over her site, and that’s really what MC should have featured above. But then, as Elizabeth put it, “Diamonds are a copywriter’s best friend.” Don’t miss Wall Street Journal Print, with side-by-side ads for the BMW 6 and 7 … Sterling, Draper … so good.

Chris Stoltz

leatherman - boar

Chris is a freelance copywriter/ACD in Mobile, Alabama. His site was submitted by fellow CW Scott Shalles (big ups, Scott). Lots of great writing all over Chris’s site, including a super long copy piece for The Simplicity Plan that actually makes death seem not so bad. Or, not as bad. Nice.

Lyle Shemer

Screen-Shot-2013-09-14-at-6.58.55-AM

Lyle is a copywriter/ACD at JWT NYC, BBDO and Dentsu before that. Lots of work for big brands like NFL, Listerine, Pepcid, DirecTV, Canon, and Rolaids. Plenty of TV and video, too. But don’t miss Writerly One-Offs, a collection of long copy pieces Lyle’s done over the years. From Lyle’s site: “I’ve always loved long copy ads. But with all the impending doom surrounding the future of print, it seems every year there are fewer opportunities to write ads in this much-beloved genre. In any case, I hope the bunch here are as much fun for you to read as they were for me to craft.” Amen, brother.

Julie Rutigliano

sunkistooh_cargo1

Julie is a senior copywriter at 360i NYC. She’s been a writer/CD in NYC since 2004, when she got her start at Mad Dogs & Englishmen. MC is always interested to see what CW’s include on their About Us pages. For example, personal recommendations. At the bottom of Julie’s About Us, she’s got two fantastic notes from Kash Sree and Noah Kerner. How do you beat that?

Elizabeth King

Elizabeth is a senior copywriter at Kirshenbaum NYC. She’s got a ton of killer stuff for BMW up on her site, plus De Beers, Starz, Smirnoff, Wendy’s, awesome. From her Elizabeth King • Copywriter page: “Advertising is not for those who like things winded. Long copy is dead. We’re no longer writers, we’re thinkers, right?” Hmm, wonders MC. Writers = thinkers. Maybe there just aren’t any readers left?

Leah Metz

Leah is a copywriter in Minneapolis. Check out her “shaving for good” campaign for The Bridging Barber. When did grooming for charity officially become a thing? Movember started in 2004, was it then? Don’t know, but MC respects macho, pruning and positivity, so it’s all love.
