Jose Benitez


Jose is a senior copywriter Dieste in Chicago. Since his last post on MC (back on 12.04.14), he’s added a bunch of new projects to his site including Adoptable Trends, which turns shelter dogs into trending topics by naming them things like “Kim Kardashian’s Butt.” So smart. So cute! (The dog, not the butt.)

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!

Andy Lewis & Stephen Giem


Andy Lewis is a senior copywriter in San Francisco. He’s work-married to senior art director Stephen Giem and they’ve consummated the relationship with a joint portfolio site that’s hilarious and all love. It links out to their individual sites, which is a great way to do it. The couple is asking for whiskey or gin in lieu of gifts, which you can send directly to MC.

Jose Benítez


Jose is a copywriter at Dieste in Chicago. He’s also a professional skateboarder who did some time at Second City. (Proving once again that drummers, comedians and surfers/skateboarders make great copywriters.) So cool to see how writers like Jose jump from one ad culture to another—and one language to another. A good idea is a good idea.

Andrew Lewis


Andrew is a freelance copywriter who left San Francisco to become an International Man of Leisure/Freelance Copywriter. He now resides in Prague, where he created the above campaign for Two Tales Beer—aiming to save the global economy (and the world) by belting America’s baggy pants, one beer at a time. Sounds crazy, right? Until you discover that Joe Satriani re-tweeted the campaign. Time to expand that title to International Man of Leisure/Freelance Copywriter/Evil Genius.

Jarl Olsen


Jarl is a copywriter/director in San Francisco. His site changes every time you visit. Sometimes projects are represented by heads. Sometimes garbage. Sometimes … well, you’ll see. (Fun.) Once you get into the site, there’s a huge range of work to check out, advertising and film. Dig it.

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 …”

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.
