Ryan Hartsfield

Ryan is a senior copywriter in San Francisco, previously at McCann and GSP (as an account guy). His site is based on a stack of paper. In his words, “One day I started cleaning out my files because they were moving us. So I started to stack up all my old briefs, dead ads, scripts, etc. into a neat little 8.5×11 pile. By the time I cleared out two years of shit, the stack was about three feet high. It looked too interesting to throw it away, so I taped it up. It became an art piece as a joke. I found a stand and put a $3000 price tag on it. I held a contest for names: “Dead Weight,” “Tower of Futility,” and the overly pretentious “Work”  are some of my favorites. I settled on “The Other 96%” because it represents all the bullshit we have to go through to make something that shouldn’t be as hard as it really is. Later I realized some of the better things I’ve done aren’t (theoretically) in the stack, so I turned the it into a site idea. And I suppose, in some way, made use of all the good n’ bad things in the pile that never came to be.” Love it.

Gerard Seifert

Gerard is a senior copywriter at WONGDOODY in Los Angeles. People sometimes ask MC, “What’s the right amount of set-up for projects in a portfolio?” Such a hard question to answer because every project is different, right? Right. But, if you had to point to an example of a portfolio with just the right set-up, content and tone, Gerard’s would be an excellent choice.

Honorary: Vladislav Ivangorodsky

Vlad is a freelance art director in NYC, most recently at W+K. Killer site and portfolio. Big ideas all over the place. After checking out Work, click on Other Stuff I Made. It just keeps going. Which makes it 100% worthy of an MC Honorary post (and then some).

Tom Archer

Tom is a copywriter in Georgia, previously at Mullen. What a fun portfolio, right down to the URL. Awesome stories all over the place. Copywriters come from every walk of life, and that’s cool. But there’s something to be said for a background/degree in writing/journalism.

Rob Rooney

Rob is a copywriter/CD in NYC. There are fewer and fewer portfolio sites that feel like someone made them from scratch. Rob’s site is one of the few, and it’s just awesome.

Craig Geller

Craig is a senior copywriter in NYC. Check out his portfolio then check out his site 99dollartaglines.com. Now that’s how you take your copywriting skills and make a small biz. Rather than, say, making a blog about other copywriters’ portfolio sites with no hope of monetization whatsoever. (Ahem.) Nice.
