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.

Chiyeung Lau

church

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.

Randy Tatum

bass

Randy is a freelance art director/CD in Minneapolis. All kinds of killer projects on his site from his time at Carmichael Lynch, Martin Williams, and freelancing all over. Of course, this being MC, especially love his use of type and how he brings words to life. Dig it.

Jeff Oswald

dude

Jeff is a freelance senior writer/ACD in Chicago. It’s been over two years since his last post on MC (04.23.15), so way past time for an update. Don’t miss his Bud Light page, featuring Conan (“Vroom-vroom party starter” heh-heh) and “Dude Vegas.” MC has but one word. Dude.

Rebecca Wang

mic

Rebecca is a copywriter at R/GA in NYC. Love the headline on her site: “Copywriter—my Art Director didn’t help me with this.” (Ha! Just own it.) Her book is in that place that’s so fun to see, half student and half produced work—already got some cool projects for Verizon and Mercedes. Can’t wait to see what she does next!

Jonathan Main

nick

Jonathan is a copywriter at Nickelodeon Creative Advertising in NYC. His portfolio is all kinds of fun, including projects for Caramel M&Ms (hilarious spot), Tracfone Wireless, Nationwide/Nick, Geico/Nick, USPS/Nick (featured above), and Nick Jr. Sometimes you click through a site and can just tell, this writer is having a blast. What’s more fun than that?

James Moffitt

pavers

James is a copywriter/content strategist at Release The Hounds, and he teaches at VCU’s Robertson School of Media and Culture. Since his last post on MC (12.16.15), he’s got the new gig at RTH and posted a bunch of killer new projects to his site, including PatiYogi for Eagle Bay Pavers (above) and The SoundView Project, which aims to create awareness about the importance of music education in schools. Time for an update!

Mark Walter

shaq

Mark is a senior copywriter at DigitasLBi in NYC. Sometimes you click through a writer’s site and you can tell that the person on the other end of the portfolio just loves making stuff. Definitely the case with Mark’s site. After “Selected Work” (password for protected projects, including featured spot above, is ‘happy’), don’t miss “Side Projects” and “Etc.” Good times.

Jon Gruber

hate

Jon is a new copywriter at Deutsch NYC after graduating from Miami Ad School on June 9th (big congrats!). The first project on his site is heavy, but powerful. Words Kill shows cyberbullies the real consequences of their actions by linking the sites of suicide victims who were bullied with the same words. Super smart.

Amanda Abrams

lexus_is_statements

Amanda is a copywriter/CD at Team One in Los Angeles, previously at Red Tettemer and ViTRO. So many cool projects in her portfolio for brands like Lexus, Taylor Guitars, Under Armour, and Planet Fitness. Don’t miss her Lexus LIT IS video (Lexus IS with 42k LEDs on it), or her custom Sriracha Lexus IS. So hot.

Colby Spear

upsglobal

Colby is a copywriter at Ogilvy & Mather NYC. Since his first post on MC two and a half years ago (01.23.15), after graduating from Miami Ad School, Colby has been busy—including a new site with all new projects for brands like Motorola, Kijiji, and UPS. There’s also a link to his student portfolio as it was back in the day. So cool to see what turned into what. Dig it.

Regan (copywriter/CD) and Jason (art director/CD) are a freelance team in Los Angeles. All kinds of great projects up and down their joint site, including work for Allstate, Hefty, Hornitos, and a hilarious campaign for Neato Robotics (above). Dig it.

VCU Brandcenter Week – Alex McClelland

GIF_scissor

Alex is a brand new art director fresh out of VCU. When a CD hires a new creative, one of the first things they often say is some version of: “Scare me! Don’t hold back. We can always reel you back in—but out of the gate, just go for it.” Ok, so Alex’s Peeps project is just flat-out scary (above). So is her creepy eyeball homepage. And Gollum Girl illustrations. (PS, don’t miss her Illustrations page. So cool.) Love it all.

VCU Brandcenter Week – Will Bareford

arbys

Sometimes the best ideas are the simplest ideas. And the stupidest ideas (in a good way). Will’s project for Arby’s at the Super Bowl is both—it literally puts Arby’s at the Super Bowl, a sandwich in a seat. #WeHaveTheSeats. So dumb. So genius. Plus, it’s Arby’s. Possibly the perfect student campaign.

VCU Brandcenter Week – Caroline Gallalee

bossmom

VCU Brandcenter Week on MC (yay!) kicks off with copywriter Caroline Gallalee. Being a copywriter is all about ideas and prose and collaboration and humor and fearlessness—but it’s also about enthusiasm and optimism and putting yourself the heck out there. Clicking through Caroline’s portfolio, she’s everywhere: rapping for MadMoms (awesome project), narrating a manifesto video for Tetra “Aquaverse,” and interviewing Kim Kardashian (awkward). Love it all.
