Thom’s portfolio is proof yet again, from his talking Progressive Box spots (above) to Todd Spaulding, Brand Strategist™. Don’t miss Thom’s Spoofs&Goofs page—his tweets to and from @Tide and @BounceFresh had MC laughing out loud.

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.

Ryan is a freelance copywriter in San Francisco. The first project on his site is a cologne for a gas station, Burnt Rubbér by Sunoco. Which, apparently, smells awesome. (Duh.)

Mark is a freelance copywriter/ACD in Boston with a brand new Squarespace site. One of the coolest things about looking through writer portfolio sites is seeing all of the ways that we market ourselves as storytellers. While most of us are now either on Squarespace or Cargo, the ways in which we tell our stories on those platforms can be very different.
