Jeffrey Hodgson

Jeffrey is a copywriter at The Richards Group in Dallas. He’s got a nice variety of clients and media on his site, including tons of work for Dodge Ram and GameStop. When you’ve got print, video and digital to show, does anything work better/simpler/faster than Cargo + Vimeo? If so, MC hasn’t seen it.

Jenny Badman

Jenny is a freelance writer in South Carolina. So … when you click through a portfolio site, it’s all about the work, right? Then, if you like the work, you call and see if you like the writer. Sometimes though, you click through a portfolio site and read what the writer’s written, about their work, about their creative partners and clients, about collaboration, and you already know: this is a nice person. I could work with this person. That’s the vibe MC gets from Jenny’s site. She obviously loves what she does (web sites to wine labels) and who she does it with. That’s awesome.

Bevan Mahaney

Bevan is a copywriter at Woods Witt Dealy & Sons in NYC. Her site is Cargo, in a template of scrolling columns that looks pretty rad on MC’s MacBook. In addition to writing, Bevan has performed at Upright Citizens Brigade and freelanced for Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live—proving once again that comedians make fantastic copywriters. Don’t miss the SNL Weekend Update jokes on her site. Here’s one to whet your appetite: It was reported this week that John Mellencamp and Meg Ryan have been “quietly dating” for about seven weeks. They also added that the two have been “quietly dying” for at least seven years.

Charlie Noback

Charlie is a freelance copywriter/CD in Los Angeles. As a full-time freelancer, he’s added a couple of little extras to his site that are pretty key. Check out this Testimonials link. He’s got 10+ quotes, not too long, super easy to nav, that say a lot about him. His contact info (phone and email) are right up top, in a universal header. And his About Us page is no-nonsense, just the facts. A very clean, well-organized, hard-working site. Nice.
