Andrew is a new copywriter after graduating from Creative Circus in June. In his first project, for Gunpowder Rye Whiskey, he uses real gunpowder to create their logo. Watch the “making of” video and you’ll see that they did it on a table in what looks like a very small backyard. (Gulp.) The things we do for portfolios.

Demetrius is a copywriter/ACD in Atlanta. All kinds of projects for some huge brands on his site including Ford, U.S. Marine Corps, BMW, NBA, Atlanta Falcons, and Delta. He’s got lots of experience with celebs too, including “Crazy Kevin” (above) for the Ford Escape featuring Kevin Hart (of course).

Jason is a copywriter/CD at CSE in Atlanta. Since his last post on MC (09.18.13), he’s moved from Ogilvy to CSE, Cargo to Squarespace, and added all kinds of new work to his site, including Big Head Lee for Coke Zero (above). Time for an update!

Hannah is a new copywriter after recently graduating from Portfolio Center in Atlanta. Sometimes, all you need is the right tagline, a photo of someone chopping veggies, and an astronaut’s head. Done.

Jeff is a new copywriter after recently graduating from Portfolio Center in Atlanta. Good info from Jeff that was news to MC: Portfolio Center and Miami Ad School joined forces in March. So, students of one can now access the resources/opportunities of both. Very cool.

David is a copywriter/CD in Atlanta. Don’t miss his social campaign for RaceTrac (convenience stores and gas stations in the southern United States) around their “endless bevy of fountain drinks,” for which David got to make up fictitious soda concoctions and name them—the ultimate dream job of every 13-year-old boy who ever lived in the southern United States. Good times.

Couple of weeks ago, MC was chatting with someone about CPR, about how all adults should know at least the basics, and that it was time to find a class. After reading Emily’s American Red Cross campaign (above), MC found a class and signed up. Just nails it.

On the back of Mariangela’s “The Official New Orleans Guide Of Who Not To Bring” there’s a quote by Mark Twain: “I have found out that there ain’t no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them.” Perfect quote. Hilarious project.

Zan’s campaign for Waze (“the crowd-sourced navigation app that helps you outsmart traffic and other traveling troubles”) features the line: “Three minutes late but thirty-three minutes earlier than the rest of the office.” Hello, every single day in San Francisco.

Sometimes you see a project in a writer’s portfolio and think, “I wish I’d done that.” Other times, you see a project in a writer’s portfolio and think, “I want to DO that.” MC has a high school photo from back in the day that needs Jordan’s Great Clips HAIR DO-OVER, so bad. So, so bad.

Big thanks to Lara for hooking up Creative Circus Week on MC. She graduates on June 20th with four other writers (big ups!), and then the future of advertising is in their hands. No pressure. Don’t miss her campaigns for Monopoly, Warby Parker (above), and Ford Fiesta. Good stuff.

Creative Circus Week continues with Madison Jackson (goalittlemad.com, nice). There’s an appropriate amount of sexting, booze and wings in her portfolio for a recent college grad. But also the above video for Georgia Aquarium, which is charming. Dig it.

Josh is a recent Creative Circus grad now writing at Fitzgerald + Co in Atlanta. (MC loves seeing what student books land which writers where.) Don’t leave without checking out his Photography link. Holy smokes, some great stuff in there.

Since Jason’s last post on MC (10/07/11), he’s gone from mcgarrybowen to Razorfish to his current gig, copywriter/ACD at Ogilvy in Atlanta. (Nice.) His site is still Cargo, MC’s fave for CWs, but he’s got all kinds of new work up. Like Change Your Hairitage for Aussie, above.
