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.

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 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 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 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.

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 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 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 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 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.

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 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 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.

Diane is a copywriter/CD in NYC. For the past six-ish years, she’s been freelancing at big name shops like Arnold, BBDO, McCann, Draftfcb, Tribal DDB, and Team One. Her site is Carbonmade, and features 18 projects from a wide variety of those agencies in all kinds of media. Check it out.

AJ is a copywriter at CP+B in Boulder. His portfolio was submitted to MC by his old AD partner, Jason Rosenberg (much appreciated, sir). It kicks ass. Be sure to check out the Mustang board in Cars & Trucks. Awesome.

Antonio is a senior copywriter at Milk Vilnius in Lithuania, previously at Y&R, Leo Burnett and JWT in Peru. Some really cool work in his portfolio, including the above ad for Dansu. “Capitalist quality meets communist price.” Says it all.

Aimee is a copywriter/ACD in Chicago. Her site was submitted by fellow CW Mike Tuton (big ups), and it’s easy to see why. All kids of awesome work for a cool variety of clients like Adidas, Sorel, Tilex, Piperllime and Chipotle. She’s also started a new card company called Brain Surgeons & Rocket Scientists (link below). Love it.
