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?

SquareTrade in San Francisco is on the hunt for a mid-level or senior writer to join our awesome internal creative team. What does it mean to be a writer at SquareTrade, the best electronics warranty company in the world? You’ll write, of course. But you’ll also be an idea factory, working with a team of crazy talented designers on a mission to make SquareTrade as amazing as it can be.
For example, in the photo above, Luke Rockhold (champion UFC fighter) is kicking the you-know-what out of an iPhone in a SquareTrade Labs Breakability video. You’ll be thinking up stuff like that—in addition to writing projects for almost every major retailer in the US, mobile carriers across the EU, social, radio, environmental, you-name-it. It’s a little bit agency. It’s a little bit in-house. It’s a whole lot of fun.
Unfortunately, we’re currently looking for local candidates only.
Interested? Email your link to Jason (SquareTrade CD) at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Jesse is a copywriter/designer/comedian/troublemaker in Chicago. Crazy mix of projects on his site, from Teddy Goalsevelt to Drink It Interns (above). Love his Press page—makes MC wonder why more of us don’t have one. Dig it.

Andrew is a new copywriter in NYC, just finishing up an internship at Wieden+Kennedy. All kinds of cool, inventive ideas in his portfolio including projects for Lego (above) and DJI Drones, soap that helps conserve water, a homemade cardboard Merit pencil for the One Show (nice), and 95 Feet—a reminder not to drive tired.

Ben is a copywriter/CD/SVP at FleishmanHillard in St. Louis. Before advertising, he got his start in the film industry including five years as Assistant to Steven Spielberg. (So cool.) You can see the influence of that experience in his projects, from a spot for PBS (above) to his “Rivals” video for Buffalo Wild Wings with David Ortiz—in which NY fans meet the slugger just after shredding him on camera. Gulp.

You’ll be thrown into the fire day one and have the opportunity to work on a diverse range of clients from travel & tourism, consumer packaged goods, durable products to fast-food.

Dan is a senior copywriter at Publicis in Seattle. Since his last post on MC (on 01.21.13), he’s added all kinds of killer projects to his site, including MC’s favorite Super Bowl spot of 2016 featuring Drake for T-Mobile. Awesome script, Drake is brilliant, plus “Can we come in the box?” at the end. Doesn’t get better than that.

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.)

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.
July 18th, 2016
Joe is a copywriter at McCann Erickson in NYC (previously spent 10 years in the US Army, two combat tours, big ups!). All kinds of cool projects on his site including work for US Army, Independence Day Resurgence, and a bunch for Lockheed Martin. Don’t miss “Field Trip To Mars” (above). So cool.

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.) How do you follow that up? With LaserHam for Dietz & Watson, featuring the laser cut face of Michael Ian Black on a ham. (Yes, it’s real.) Doesn’t get better than that.

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.
