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.

Jose is a senior copywriter Dieste in Chicago. Since his last post on MC (back on 12.04.14), he’s added a bunch of new projects to his site including Adoptable Trends, which turns shelter dogs into trending topics by naming them things like “Kim Kardashian’s Butt.” So smart. So cute! (The dog, not the butt.)

Mike is a freelance ACD/copywriter currently at Leo Burnett in Chicago. He’s got a crazy variety of projects on his Behance site—from BMW Motorcycles to ESPN/Die Hard 4 co-branding, a campaign for the American Association of Railroads to a commercial for DCBeer.com featuring, well, you’ll just have to see that one for yourself. (MC only looked at the left side, FYI.)

Alice is a copywriter/creative technologist at Leo Burnett in Milan, Italy. She’s made a beautiful site featuring a bunch of killer technology projects for Samsung, including the Smart Play-Board, Smart Bike, and Maestros Academy. Very cool. Love having an Italian writer on MC again.

Bryan is a writer at Venables Bell in San Francisco. Since his last post on MC (4.23.12), he moved to Venables from Leo Burnett Chicago and added new work to his site, including Audi and Skyy Vodka. Love the Audi spot (above). That’s exactly what the world is going to be like once Amazon starts using drones for delivery. Unfortunately, MC only has a Honda. Yikes!

Mike is a freelance copywriter in San Francisco. Since his last post on MC (07.08.11), he’s added Cheetos, Netflix and Comcast to his site, worked at GS&P for a couple of years, and freelanced at Muh-tay-zuhk Hoffer, Cutwater, Heat, and Eleven Inc. (Busy!) Mike’s also written and directed a short film called “Steve’s Problem” which just premiered online after 16 film fests and two “best narrative short” wins. Check it out on the “Film” section of his site.

Tim is a freelance copywriter/CD in Minneapolis. Over the past 20 years, he’s worked at shops like Fallon, Carmichael, Arnold, Burnett, and Saatchi (geez), on more awesome accounts than MC can list here. Don’t miss his classic campaigns for Citi Simplicity Card and the VW Beetle, including the above spot “Squares.” Brilliant.

Brian is a copywriter/ACD at Tierney in Philadelphia. Since his last post on MC (way back on 07.15.10), he’s got a new site, new URL, new work, the whole thing. Way past due for an update.

Jose is a copywriter at Dieste in Chicago. He’s also a professional skateboarder who did some time at Second City. (Proving once again that drummers, comedians and surfers/skateboarders make great copywriters.) So cool to see how writers like Jose jump from one ad culture to another—and one language to another. A good idea is a good idea.

Elliot is a copywriter at Sukle Advertising & Design in Denver. His site was submitted to MC by art director Allie Nordstrom, who also happens to be his wife (rad, big ups, Allie!). Don’t miss his campaign for Man Therapy, featuring Dr. Rich Mahogany, which aims to put an end to the stigma of men and mental health. The name alone is reason enough to watch. Nice.

Nate is a copywriter at Leo Burnett in Chicago. Whole bunch of Allstate in his portfolio including TV, banners and print. How great is the Mayhem campaign? Great. He’s also got a Second City sketch that he wrote and titled, which ran for five weeks. Once again proving that comedian and copywriter are like peanut butter and jelly.

Travis is a copywriter at Amazon.com in Seattle, previously at Leo Burnett in Chicago. Lots of great work all over his site, including his Doritos campaign (above) “encouraging” moviegoers to snack on chips instead of popcorn. So scary!

Jason is a copywriter/CD at The Buntin Group in Nashville. He’s got my favorite all-time McDonald’s spot in his portfolio (above), which MC has no choice but to feature in his post—though he has plenty of new work in on his site, too. So good. Just so so good.
March 5th, 2014
Dave is a senior writer at ViTRO in San Diego, previously at Arnold, Leo Burnett, SapientNitro, and MMB. All kinds of killer work up and down his site for a crazy variety of clients, including Asics (the marathon treadmill is genius), Dodge Ram, Truth, Jack Daniel’s, Bahamas, Alaska Communications, Red Sox, and Radio Shack. Love it.

Will is a copywriter/CD in NYC. Since his last post on MC (05.24.2012), he’s got a ton of new work up on his site, including the above spot for the new BMWi launch that’s running during the Olympics—which kicked off this weekend in Sochi. In fact, MC just saw it while watching Luge. Dig it.

Maria is a new copywriter at Leo Burnett in Chicago, after graduating from SMU last year where she was part of their Creative Method program. (Big ups!) Her book is currently all student/intern work, which MC loves to see. It takes more than a killer book to land a job at a shop like Leo Burnett Chicago, but it all starts with the portfolio.
September 5th, 2013
Sarah graduated from Creative Circus in 2011 and has been a copywriter at Leo Burnett in Chicago ever since. Her book is a mix of real world and student, which MC always finds super interesting. Don’t miss her retro ad for Mayhem that appeared in the Mad Men issue of Newsweek. Dream assignment, geez.

G. Andrew is a copywriter/EVP/ECD at Leo Burnett Chicago. As you can probably guess by the title, his site is loaded with killer work—for clients like Altoids, Corona, Samsung, and Starbucks. His stuff for Altoids could be a dynamite portfolio all by itself. Love it love it love it.

Anne is a writer/ACD in Chicago. Her site features a ton of big, national brands for agencies like Leo Burnett and Y&R. Fun to see what she’s done with them. For example, the above bumper cars spot for Always. In which the ride is a giant, um, and the bumper cars represent, uh …
