My Favorite Professional Creations of the '00s

Professionally speaking, I spent most of the '00s as a copywriter and creative director within the realm of recruitment (help wanted) advertising. I also had opportunity to create materials in other modes of advertising and marketing (B2B, consumer, political, retail, etc.).

Listed below are the ads, websites, etc. that I recall most favorably from this decade. Except for the pieces indicated by an asterisk, these are just as much examples showcasing the excellent artists I worked with, primarily Michael, Wendy, Jim and Marissa.

If want to discuss freelance projects or full-time opportunities, as I am still looking for a new job, please get in touch at setharkin@msn.com.
