Eric Gautschi

beer

Eric is a copywriter/CD/managing partner at The New BLK in Omaha. Lots of killer work on his site for well-known brands like Airbnb and Nissan, and smaller brands like Lucky Bucket Brewing Co. (above) and Omaha’s Brickway Brewery. So cool to get to see a great book filled with work that most of us (outside of Nebraska) wouldn’t normally get to see. Dig it.

Jane Harrison

spreadoneNAVC

Jane is a long-time freelance copywriter/CD in Orlando (but willing to travel). She’s worked with an eclectic mix of clients over the years, including Turner Classic Movies, Shutterfly, NBA City, CIBC Bank (North America), Cable & Wireless (Grand Cayman Island), and the North American Veterinary Community (above). Always interesting to see the difference between how a permalance creative executes their site (aiming for clients) versus an agency or in-house creative (aiming for a job). Dig it.

Ben Phillips

lawnman

Ben is a senior creative at TBWA\Manchester. Since his last post on MC (07.23.2015), he’s been busy. He’s got a killer-looking site (Squarespace), including an awesome video reel landing page. Love all of the amazing characters in his portfolio, from Neal the Sofaworks sloth, to New Westland Safelawn’s Lawn Man (above), to Glen the rentalcars.com Rental Car guru, to Ben’s dog who dances to Def Leppard (not kidding). Time for an update!

Eduardo Vea Keating

mexicochicago

Eduardo is a copywriter/CD from Spain who’s been living and working in Chicago for the past six years—and is currently at DDB Chicago. Lots of cool outdoor and experiential stuff on his site, including projects for Mexico.com (above) and MINI (love the chairlift). Which makes sense, because he also has a second Behance site showing off his art, design and sculpture projects. Love it.

Matt Benjamin

plumber

Matt is a copywriter in Albuquerque on the hunt for his next thing. Love the strategic write-ups for his projects, titled “Consider This.” Short, to the point, great way to set things up. Also dig that Matt includes #1 Failures for each job he’s had on his Experience page—along with three things he’s learned (down at the bottom). Super smart site, all the way around. Except for his Jokes video. That’s good and dumb.

Mike Beamer

Mike is a copywriter/CD at JWT in Chicago. Since his last post on MC a year ago, Mike has added a St. Louis Children’s TV campaign, an Illinois Tourism TV campaign and some other Illinois-made videos and OOH to his site. But his favorite update is an Illinois Tourism print ad in Sports Illustrated congratulating his beloved Cubs for winning the World Series (published in the World Series commemorative issue). Yessssss.

Max Reinhardt

Max is a new copywriter on the hunt for his first copywriting gig after recently “matriculating” from San Diego Portfolio School. (Max’s word, not MC’s. Nice.) What’s more fun than that? His student portfolio features six spec campaigns at the time of this post, including the above for Happy Socks. Adorbs.

Ruben de Barros

listerine

Ruben is a junior copywriter at Nylon in Lisbon, Portugal. His site is hosted on Behance, which seems to be a more popular portfolio platform in other countries than here in the US (where Squarespace is king). Nothing MC loves to see more than new copywriter portfolios, doesn’t matter where from. Fresh ideas are fresh ideas.

James Maravetz

LooseCannon

James is a writer/director at Storyfarm in Baltimore. Since his last post on MC (08.07.14), he’s been busy. From James: “After years of working as a Creative Director at big agencies like Crispin and Saatchi, I decided to pursue my dream of directing commercials myself. I moved to Baltimore and took over the creative and directing duties for a film production company called Storyfarm. With my advertising experience, combined with Storyfarm’s production capabilities, we’ve created an interesting niche for ourselves as a hybrid ad agency/production company. Now I’m writing and directing content directly for clients, usually without an agency go-between.” Dig it.

Dave Rutherford

Dave is an architect in NYC who’s changing careers to copywriting. He’s got five spec campaigns on his site as of this post—and the first one for HGTV (above) is a perfect example of how to turn something you know well into an awesome spec campaign. Nice. Can’t wait to see where Dave lands!

Chiyeung Lau

Chiyeung is a recent Creative Circus grad who’s now at Deutsch NY. What kind of student book do you need to land at an awesome shop like Deutsch out of school? This is your chance to find out. (Hint: it’s great.) Love the crazy mix of spec clients. Starts with the Archdiocese of New York (above), ends with Playboy Magazine and Under Armor. Nice.

Really great, strategic student work all over his portfolio from SCAD. Also, don’t miss the NAPA project he worked on while at VML, including Old Car Champion Facebook posts (above). Super fun idea.

Kapil Kachru

PlayStation

Since his last post on MC almost five years ago (11.14.12), Kapil has added some killer projects to his already killer portfolio. Blind Lucky, a “proof of concept for a feature disguised as a short,” Comma womenswear, Strellson menswear, and a PlayStation concept book that goes way deeper than shoot-em-up (above). Love it.

Dig it.
