Matthew is a copywriter/ACD at Dentsu in NYC. His mother, Joan, describes him as follows: “Matthew grew up in a wood clapboard house near downtown Minneapolis. But, these humble beginnings belie his enormous talents. He sang in the Metropolitan Boys Choir and taught himself to play Scott Joplin’s “The Entertainer” on piano. He started wrestling at age seven and was city champion by age twelve. He endured thirteen years of public schooling and got along with just about everyone he ever met. Needless to say, his talents have only multiplied with age. He’d be an invaluable addition to any agency. And I’m not just saying that because I’m his mother. Did I mention he’s also handsome? Feel free to call me if you’d like to talk about Matthew some more. You can get my number from my wonderful son who, by the way, never forgets to call me.”

Jon is a copywriter at BBDO Toronto. His site is, as he described it, “not very jazzy.” Which makes it, one could argue, a very copywriter-ish site. Click through the un-jazziness and check out the work for the Vancouver International Film Festival. Awesome.

Shannon is a copywriter in San Francisco. In addition to her portfolio, you’ll find quite a bit about her awesome blog and soon-to-be book, Apocalypse Cakes, on her site. In fact, it’s front and center. Which, for those of us who write on the side, makes you think about at what point you’d make copywriting your writing-on-the-side if your writing-on-the-side blew up. Hmm.

Tim is a copywriter/GCD/SVP at Mullen. His portfolio just totally rocks. Spent 15 minutes debating myself over which piece to feature above. Awesome.

Jon is a senior copywriter at AKQA in DC. Bunch of cool work on his site for VW, The Force Unleashed 2, and Fallout 3. Also on the site is a wide variety of his art including visual and video series, projects, and a performance series entitled “Feed Me,” in which Jon’s friends do just that.

Jon is an art director/designer/creative director at BOHAN in Nashville. His site is called Coolville, and that it is, especially his work for the United Methodist Church. Wow. Love the Fine Living spots, too. Says Jon about his portfolio, “My work is only as good as the writing i’ve been blessed enough to have been given.” Honorary MC post, ding!

Malachy is a copywriter/CD in San Francisco. Love the silent video at the bottom right of each page – cool and arty and creepy all at the same time. Don’t misses: Nokia TV and About & Films (“A Single Woman” is awesome).

Chiyong is a senior copywriter at JWT NY, formerly at Ogilvy & Mather and Leo Burnett. That’s a rez right off Mad Men, but Chiyong’s work is fresh as fish. (Fresh as fish?) Bing, Yahoo!, IBM, awesome.

Diego is a Brazilian art director/senior partner/CD at Ogilvy NYC. His site is so simple. It’s a “karaoke style reel,” plus links to Twitter, LinkedIn, Flickr, Contact, Store (yes, a store), and Tweet This!

Andy is a copywriter/creative manager at Target in Minneapolis, a cyclist, and a good friend of MC. (That’s him above left, with designer Jason Miller on the right.) Andy discovered he had testicular cancer on Christmas Eve. He started treatment on Monday. His blog BLOOD SWEAT CHEMO “exists to expose the daily grind behind four cycles of chemo.” Check it out. Get inspired. Give a little if you feel like it.

Randy is a copywriter at Saatchi LA. Almost everything on his site is for one brand, Toyota, but what a mix of work. So cool spending a solid chunk of time on a big brand like that. You get the knowledge and the variety. Good times.

Julia is a freelance copywriter in Los Angeles, formerly at WONGDOODY and Publicis. Nominee for best brief ever: “TBS wanted a way to countdown to the date of Conan’s first show, November 8th 2010.” Love it. Love the campaign, too.

Paul is a senior copywriter at IQ in Atlanta. Some awesome writing in his book, including hilarious South Park Little League yard signs. His site is hosted on Krop, the second on MC. From Paul’s LinkedIn page: “Not sure how cool this is, but I worked at Disney World as Chip & Dale while at school.” So cool.
