His site is loaded with killer projects for a crazy variety of brands including Guinness, Liberty Mutual, IKEA, Mercedes-Benz, Exxon Mobile, Bass Ale, Microsoft, Citibank, Revlon, Sobieski Vodka, IBM, and Vaseline (featured above). Stoked to have him up on MC.

Jon Arnold


Jon is VP/CD/AD at BOHAN in Nashville. Since his last post on MC (09.17.14), he’s got all kinds of cool new work up on his site: Coolville. As a writer, one of the first things MC looks at in designer portfolios is typography. Don’t miss Jon’s typography page in the design section of his site (awesome). But there’s great type all over his site, including in his Mars One project (above, featured under art direction). Take me, please.

Matt Elhardt


Matt is a freelance writer/CD based in Malibu, California. Holy smokes has he worked everywhere good: Apple, Wieden+Kennedy, Fallon, 180la, Leagas Delaney, Goodby Silverstein & Partners, Media Arts Lab and Crispin Porter + Bogusky. At those shops, he’s done killer work for Apple, Nike, Netflix, Subaru, adidas, HP, Coke and CNET—including the classic spot above. So awkward. So genius. One of MC’s all-time faves.

Alison Hammer


Alison is a copywriter/CD at MARC USA in Pittsburgh, PA. She’s got a crazy variety of projects up on her site, including online videos for verisign that look like they would have been a blast to shoot. “Ok, fish—hit him!” Also, don’t miss her Hate Mail page. We’ve all gotten it. Nice to see it proudly displayed.

Pete Kearney


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.

Libby Schaller


Libby is a freelance copywriter/CD in Kansas City, Missouri. After 11 years of agency life, Libby’s gone full-time freelance. Now she’s ready to swing for the fences—for your team. (Sorry! Kansas City Royals are in the World Series, had to do a baseball pun. Not Libby’s fault.) All kinds of cool work on her site for brands like Gatorade, Helzberg, Kashi, Ball Canning, Apple, and Sonic. Don’t miss her “The Stalls” social campaign for Sonic during The Hills. Delish.

Matt Bogen


Matt is a freelance writer/CD in Los Angeles. His site features 18 projects covering a huge range of media—with nice tight strategic setups that get you into the how and why of each in just a sentence or two. Been in the biz a few years and still kicking ass? Got a lot to show? This is how we do it.

UPDATE: Jon Arnold


Jon is a VP/CD/AD at BOHAN in Nashville, and one of the few honorary art directors on MC. Love what he does with words. Since is last post (12.26.12), he’s got a new Squarespace site (beautiful) and all kinds of new work on it. Time for an update!

Jason Wright


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.

Rod Goodman

Rod is a copywriter/CD in Louisville who’s been doing the contract/freelance thing for awhile now. It’s interesting to see how permalancers market themselves through their portfolio sites—the difference between selling your skills to land clients/projects versus landing a job. The work is the work, but how it’s presented is so different.

Brad Roseberry

Brad is a copywriter/Global CD for Accenture at TBWA Chiat/Day NYC. His resume is sick: Chiat, W+K, GS+P, BBDO, 180. His site is loaded with big campaigns for monster clients like Pepsi, GE, Adidas, Old Navy, and includes a couple of classics for Got Milk? and Airwalk. Good times.

UPDATE: Jon Arnold

Jon is a VP/CD/AD at BOHAN in Nashville. (Previous post on 12.19.11.) We honor ADs here on MC who honor words, and clicking through Jon’s work there’s no doubt about that. Since his last post on MC, he’s updated his site with a new tumblr design and it looks H.O.T. Love it. Definitely worth an update.

Erik Fahrenkopf

Erik is a copywriter/CD at Goodby in San Francisco. He shares a portfolio site with partner/AD Anthony Decarolis, and their work is just ridiculous awesome. MC had a tough time selecting which piece to feature, but you can’t go wrong with Cheetos Flamin’ Hot fingers dialing 911. Brilliant.

UPDATE: Greg Gerstner

Greg is a copywriter/CD at Ogilvy NY. He’s got a brand new site and a bunch of new work to go with it, including an interactive touch wall for IBM at the US Open, and three new spots for IBM. But honestly, there’s so much killer work in Greg’s portfolio, any excuse to post it again is a good excuse.

Steve Rabosky

Steve is a copywriter/CD in Los Angeles, formerly CCO of Dailey, Saatchi LA and Ammirati London, and ECD of Chiat. Plus, one of the nicest guys in the biz. His site is so loaded with classic work for clients like Apple, Energizer and Toyota, it was nearly impossible to choose what to feature in this post. The frame above is from a Honda Fury spot. Sick.

Aimee Lehto

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.

Bob Rickert

Bob is a copywriter/CD in Boulder and a fellow Duck (go Ducks!). In his Outdoor section, he has a campaign for the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame that features “the longest copy outdoor ads in American advertising.” About 10,500 words each. That’s what we like to see on MC. Only one complaint. Wish we could zoom in to read all of those beautiful words.

UPDATE: Chris Ford

Friend of MC, genius copywriter and brilliant human being Chris Ford is back in the States (and the Bay Area) as CCO at Draftfcb. He’s also got a new Cargo site that’s just loaded. Welcome home, Ford.

Jason Rappaport

Jason is a copywriter/ACD/VP at McCann in Los Angeles. MC saved this one special for the holiday, because it’s deep (22 projects) and fun. Think of it as an excuse for getting away from the fam for a little breather. “Going to go down to the basement for a few, Uncle Herm. Got to check out this big portfolio site.” Don’t forget to grab a bottle of something on your way down. And a turkey leg.

Isaac Silverglate

Isaac is a copywriter/ACD at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners in San Francisco, previously at Droga5 in NYC. His link was sent in by David Roth (thanks, man) and MC knows why. Because it’s ridiculous awesome. Every once in a while, you click through a CW’s portfolio site and think to yourself, “No way. No way did a client let them do that. No way did a client pay for that.” This is one of those. Start with Combos TV. “What your Mom would feed you if your Mom were a man.” No way.
