Cameron Day


Cameron is a freelance writer/CD in Austin. He’s the son of Guy Day (co-founder of Chiat/Day) and the “PAST” page on his site is a who’s-who list of amazing clients and agencies. Clicking through his work, you see why—great writing all over the place. So what does MC choose to feature? A grocery bag, of course! It just perfectly sums up what a copywriter’s portfolio should be about. You may spend 30 years writing the hell out of everything from Super Bowl TV to Rolling Stone print, but in the end it’s that grocery bag you nailed that makes it to the top. Great writing is great writing, no matter where it appears. Love it.

Josh Weiss


Josh is an art director at Saatchi in Los Angeles. Tons of projects for Toyota on his site, including a series of influencer videos for 4Runner. Don’t miss “The Last Jump” by Chris McNamara (above), which shows what can happen when base jumping doesn’t go as planned. (Gulp.) Cool use of YouTube’s annotation feature for this project.

Ben Tom George


Ben is a copywriter/ACD at Zambezi in Los Angeles. Check out his site for Stance special edition Star Wars socks—which allowed fans to use the force when shopping without touching their screens. Awesome. Ben also wrote the tagline for Words With Friends, “May the best friend win.” If you’re a WWF junky like MC, that’s tagline rock stardom. But is Ben any good at WWF, you ask?! MC challenged him to a game (actually three), and can confirm: yes. He’s very good.

Heather Parke


Heather is a freelance copywriter/ACD in Los Angeles. Check out her rez and you can’t help but be a little jealous of the agencies she’s worked with and the brands she’s worked on. Sick, sick, sick. MC had a hard time choosing what image to feature in Heather’s post, but if you have the opportunity to get Bradley Cooper’s face up there, that’s what you do. Right? Right.

Matt Bogen

He started life as a graphic designer, then switched to writing at his first agency. Check out his project for Yoshinkan Aikido, which uses pieces of bad guy faced-cake to promote self-defense classes for Malaysian women. Delish.

Nick Marchese


Nick is a copywriter at Saatchi & Saatchi NY. You know, there’s nothing better than ads that make you laugh, like Nick’s Smooth Musings for Keystone with Keith Stone (“Bon Jovi. Which of course in French means, good Jovi”). Except, maybe, for ads that make you feel better about the world. Like Nick’s Super Bowl spot for Cheerios, or his videos for Goodwill. Nicely done, sir.

Since his first post on MC (March 2012), he’s moved from AKQA to Digitas and added some new work for eBay and Taco Bell to his portfolio — including a series of shorts for eBay called “eBay Thanks You.” Sometimes a story needs more than 30 or 60 seconds, you know?
