Steve is a copywriter/creative director at The Richards Group in Dallas. All kinds of killer projects on his site, from “Nothing good happens after midnight. Except Denny’s.” to “Hacker” for Motel 6 (so perfectly relevant at the time of this posting!). Don’t miss his terrifying “Termites are monsters” spot for Terminix (above). Yikes!

David is a freelance copywriter/filmmaker in Austin, Texas. In addition to projects for MetLife, Amstel Light, Verizon, and Heineken on his site, you can view the trailer for his first feature film, Spoiler Alert. Love to see a copywriter who’s pursuing big screen dreams at the same time. Big ups!

Andrew is a copywriter/GCD at Story in NYC. Since his last post on MC (way back on 09.21.11), he’s got a new site, new gig, and a whole bunch of new work for clients like Verizon, Audible, Vevo, Google, Chapstick, and Mentos. Don’t miss his beautiful campaign for Popsicle (above) celebrating summer. Is it really almost over? How’d that happen so fast?

Todd is a freelance copywriter/CD in Boston. Since his last post on MC over six years ago (05.10.10, so long ago), Todd’s been busy. Like, super busy. Including lighting the 26-foot high Jack Daniel’s Barrel Tree (above), which looks like inspiration for MC’s 2016 front yard holiday display. Yes, please. Welcome back, Mr. Mitchell.

Elliott is a freelance copywriter/CD in Charleston, South Carolina. (Previously at Vitro in San Diego.) Huge variety of clients on his site, including Toyo Tires, Asics, Taylor Guitars, Newcastle Brown Ale, Lifeproof, Boston Scientific, Massey Ferguson, and Petco (above). If you love pets (oh stop, you know you do) don’t miss his video “Petco Now Launch.” Adorbs.

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).

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.

Keith is a freelance copywriter/ACD in NYC. He’s got a crazy mix of projects in his portfolio, including the above National Geographic-inspired video for DSW. Which is exactly how MC feel shopping for kicks there. (Nailed it.) He’s also included a page for his Quarter-Career Gap Year, which is just a brilliant idea for all writers. Love it.

Bryan is a writer at Venables Bell in San Francisco. Since his last post on MC (4.23.12), he moved to Venables from Leo Burnett Chicago and added new work to his site, including Audi and Skyy Vodka. Love the Audi spot (above). That’s exactly what the world is going to be like once Amazon starts using drones for delivery. Unfortunately, MC only has a Honda. Yikes!

Kerry is a copywriter/CD in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina. She’s also a good friend/former agency comrade of MC, from all the way back when Arnold had a San Francisco shop. (Was it really that long ago?) So happy to have her posted up, at last. Dig it.
January 16th, 2015
Brian is a copywriter/ACD at Tierney in Philadelphia. Since his last post on MC (way back on 07.15.10), he’s got a new site, new URL, new work, the whole thing. Way past due for an update.

Finishing up MC Updates Week with Howard Hill, a senior freelance copywriter in Los Angeles. Since his last post on MC (03.12.13), Howard’s added some new work to his site including a new brand campaign for LifeLock and some Sony Xperia digital work. Update time!

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.

Jason is a copywriter/CD at The Buntin Group in Nashville. He’s got my favorite all-time McDonald’s spot in his portfolio (above), which MC has no choice but to feature in his post—though he has plenty of new work in on his site, too. So good. Just so so good.
January 10th, 2014
Chris is a freelance copywriter/ACD in Mobile, Alabama. His site was submitted by fellow CW Scott Shalles (big ups, Scott). Lots of great writing all over Chris’s site, including a super long copy piece for The Simplicity Plan that actually makes death seem not so bad. Or, not as bad. Nice.

Rod is a copywriter/CD in Louisville who’s been doing the contract/freelance thing for awhile now. It’s interesting to see how permalancers market themselves through their portfolio sites—the difference between selling your skills to land clients/projects versus landing a job. The work is the work, but how it’s presented is so different.
March 12th, 2013
Howard is a senior CW in Los Angeles. Since his last post on MC (03.28.11) he’s updated from Krop to Cargo and added some killer new work, including pieces for Sony’s Xperia Studio and Americans Elect. About the latter, from Howard: “We tried to use the internet to nominate a president. That one didn’t work out but it was worth a shot because someone’s going to do it eventually.”

Erik is a copywriter/CD at Goodby in San Francisco. He shares a portfolio site with partner/AD Anthony Decarolis, and their work is just ridiculous awesome. MC had a tough time selecting which piece to feature, but you can’t go wrong with Cheetos Flamin’ Hot fingers dialing 911. Brilliant.
September 19th, 2012
Greg is a copywriter/CD at Ogilvy NY. He’s got a brand new site and a bunch of new work to go with it, including an interactive touch wall for IBM at the US Open, and three new spots for IBM. But honestly, there’s so much killer work in Greg’s portfolio, any excuse to post it again is a good excuse.
