Mike Breighner


Mike is a copywriter at VML in NYC where he helped create the above Moto Dojo campaign highlighting Motorola’s Moto Action. There are times when every copywriter gets lost in the grind of penning 500 tags for some new product that doesn’t really need a tag and questions, “Why? Is this really a job? Is what I do worthy of my short time on this planet?” Then comes along a project like Mike’s Moto Dojo and it all goes out the window. Of course this isn’t a real job. Look at what we do. And yet, somehow, they pay us. Shhh.

Jordan Dontos


Jordan is a copywriter/ACD at Slingshot in Dallas. Since is last post on MC (09.27.13), he’s moved from Cargo to Squarespace (as many of us are doing) and added a bunch of new work to his site, including Terminix, Texas Tourism and Taco Bueno (above). Definitely time for an update!

Brad Meyers


Brad is a VP/CD/copywriter at DigitasSF. Since his last post on MC (way back on 09.06.12), he’s added all kinds of awesome work to his site including projects for Taco Bell, Playstation, and a bunch of comedy writing. If you’re one of the few who haven’t seen Taco Bell Blackout (above), don’t miss it. One of the smartest, bravest social media stunts ever. Just fantastic.

Reid Hultman


Reid is a senior copywriter moving to NYC from Minneapolis in June. (Congrats!) Leave it to someone from Minnesota to come up with the idea of asking a guy to live in a snow globe as the agency holiday stunt (above, for McKinney). Too perfect.

UPDATE: Jordan Dontos


Jordan is a copywriter/ACD at Slingshot in Dallas. Since his last post on MC (08.05.2010), he’s got a new Cargo site and all kinds of new work up on it. Including a campaign for Warheads, featuring “The Teeth.” MC imagines what it was like being the set designer, getting that call. “So, like, there’s like this giant mouth, and like, two of the teeth are people, Sour Tooth and Sweet Tooth …”

UPDATE: Brian Button


Brian is a copywriter in San Francisco. 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? Also, MC would like Jonathan Adler’s beach house, please.

Chelsea Davison

Chelsea is a junior copywriter at Tribal DDB in NYC and a stand-up comedian. (Once again proving MC’s theory that comedians and drummers make the best copywriters.) Don’t miss her video for Docracy: “What It Feels Like To Be A Freelancer.” Word.

Brad Meyers

Brad is a copywriter/ACD in San Francisco. People often ask MC, what makes a good CW portfolio? Pretty simple. When you’re clicking through it, do you feel jealous? Of the work? Do you wish it was yours? That’s a good start. Brad’s site includes a campaign that made MC so jealous back in the day. That 7-Eleven experiential campaign, where they turned 12 stores into Kwik-E-Marts from the Simpsons to hype the release of the Simpsons Movie. Just fantastic.

Brian Button

Brian is a writer at AKQA in San Francisco. You know what’s fun? Clicking through someone’s portfolio, and you see they’ve got a big Tony Stewart TV spot on there, one of TBS’ Funniest Commercials of 2010. That’s first. Then, you skip down to what’s last, in the Other Stuff section, and you find a headshot of Brian on socks and tighty whities, proudly gifted to and displayed by his family at holiday time. You just. I mean. You can’t beat that.

UPDATE – Justin Kramm

Justin is a copywriter/ACD at Publicis & Hal Riney in San Francisco. He just relaunched his site with a bunch of new work, and made it mobile-awesome. So now you can take Justin with you, wherever you go. How great is that? Great. NOTE: Commuters on 280 between 8:30 and 10am, don’t Justin and drive. Please. I’d hate for my blog to be the cause of my own demise. Thank you.

Steven Nasi

Steven is a copywriter/CD/VP at McCann NYC. You know what’s awesome? When a CD with the credentials, portfolio and experience that Steven’s got includes a campaign on his site that’s all about making “the 5th floor of Ogilvy’s old office a livelier place.” Love it.

Ted McCagg

Jordan Dontos

Jordan is a senior copywriter at TM in Dallas. On his site is a series of posters welcoming IT Specialists to a server convention in Las Vegas. No visuals. No budget. Just words and a drop of type design. That, my friends, is copywriting.

Liz Taylor

Liz is a copywriter/CD at Tribal DDB. So cool to see all of the different ways copywriters display their work. I was trying to think of how to describe Liz’s first five or six projects, and the word “placemats” popped into my head. Placemats with video, sound effects and links. So cool.

Justin Kramm

Justin is a copywriter/ACD at Publicis & Hal Riney. He’s got nine projects in his book, and they range from a killer site for Riney (breakthrough nav) to branded content/film Unflinching Triumph, directed by Mark Decena. NOTE: Instead of a rez, Justin links to his LinkedIn profile. Starting to see more of that.

Barbara Kopeloff

Barbara is a senior copywriter at Tribal DDB in NYC, Ogilvy and R/GA and Big Spaceship before that. With all of that awesome interactive experience, and projects like HBO Voyeur, Nike+ and OfficeMax Arcade in her portfolio, what does Barbara’s site look like? Some big interactive production? Nope. Nine projects you can click through in about two minutes. And all of the info you could want for each project, right there, easy as Sunday morning.

Louis graduated from Miami Ad School in 2009 and is now an interactive copywriter at Tribal DDB Dallas. Before MAS, he got a degree in creative writing from Iowa. During and after MAS, he interned at Fallon, Lowe, CP+B, and Energy BBDO (two months each). NICE.
