Craig is a copywriter/SVP/Group CD at Arnold Worldwide in Boston. Since his last post on MC (04.22.11), he moved from Crispin Porter + Bogusky in Boulder to Arnold, and added a bunch of new work to his portfolio—which just rocks. It’s one those sites where you go, “Oh, that campaign. And that campaign. And he did that campaign, too. Geeeez.” Just awesome.

Chris is a junior copywriter at kbs+ in NYC, five months into it. (He’s also a surfer, which once again goes to prove MC’s theory that surfers, drummers and comedians make great copywriters.) Right now, his book is mostly student work — but MC can’t wait to see what he adds from kbs+ this year.

Steven is a copywriter at Blue Chip Marketing in Chicago. Just a crazy variety of projects and media in his portfolio. From a Cover Girl/MTV VMA Twitter Party to Food Network food porn for Fisher Nuts (above), there’s a little something for everyone. Plus, have to mention, MC got the chance to chat with Steven a couple of times over the past few months—and he’s good people. Dig it.

Nick is a graduating UT copywriter/photographer. He’s got a super clean portfolio that includes Aquafreshman: a campaign for Aquafresh targeting incoming college freshmen. Probably the most perfect student campaign idea ever. Definitely the freshest.

What happens when a self-described “Indonesian oil brat imported to Texas” goes through the Texas Creative program? Idaho Tourism, Waffle House, and Fossil Watches, of course. Love the crazy mix of clients in Ananta’s portfolio. (True for whole Texas graduating CW class, actually.) Dig it.

Sarah has her Bachelor’s in English: Creative Writing from The University of North Texas and now has a Masters in Advertising from the University of Texas. (Big ups!) From her About page: “I craft blogs, movie reviews, news articles, ad copy, short stories, and scribbles of absolute nothings on slips of paper I leave scattered across my apartment. I enjoy Hemingway, Hitchcock, and a band called Beirut. I believe in the Oxford Comma. And the occasional sentence fragment.” High-five on the Oxford Comma. And the sentence fragment.

David graduated last week as a copywriter from the University of Texas at Austin, how’s about that? Big congrats, and a big thanks for helping MC put together U of Texas Week on MC. Don’t miss his Vegas social app, Interfriention. MC can think of so many uses.

Ricardo is a copywriter at LatinWorks in Santa Monica, just finishing up his first year there. He’s got a rad mix of produced, spec, conceptual, and just fun stuff on his site. He’s also a drummer, and there’s a link to some of his music as well. (Once again proving MC’s theory that drummers and comedians make great copywriters.) Well done, Mr. Duran.

Roger is a senior copywriter at McKinney in Durham, NC. Since his last post on MC (01.16.12), he’s moved from Arnold Boston to McKinney and added a bunch of new work to his site, including some killer stuff for ESPN. Time for an update!

Chase is a copywriter at STRUCK in Salt Lake City. From his About us page: “Every morning I wake up and tell myself I’m not going to be weird today, and every morning I fail because that’s a weird thing to do.” (Nice.) Don’t miss his Glasses.com vids. Beautiful.

As y’all know, MC doesn’t accept $$$ for posting writer sites on MC. However, every once in a while, a writer sends in a “thanks for posting my site” treat … which is totally above and beyond. This morning, MC received the above box of magically delicious chocolate chip (and what else is in there?! coconut?!) cookies from SoCal writer Jim Terry. Many thanks, Mr. Terry!!!

Maddie is a copywriter at The Richards Group in Dallas, almost one year into it after graduating from University of South Carolina in 2013. She’s already got some big Dodge Ram spots in her portfolio, plus cool work for Black Kow Fertilizer, American Classic Tea, and Sailor Jerry Rum. Good times.

Nick is a copywriter at Saatchi & Saatchi NY. You know, there’s nothing better than ads that make you laugh, like Nick’s Smooth Musings for Keystone with Keith Stone (“Bon Jovi. Which of course in French means, good Jovi”). Except, maybe, for ads that make you feel better about the world. Like Nick’s Super Bowl spot for Cheerios, or his videos for Goodwill. Nicely done, sir.

Since his last post on MC (03.06.11), Louis moved to Euro where he worked on Dos Equis and The Most Interesting Man in the World, then to Grey New York where he works on everything from Pringles to Purolator. On the side, he’s also doing something awesome for the CW community. From Louis: “I do a Google Helpout where anyone (students mostly) who wants me to take a look at their portfolio can set a up a time, video chat with me, and I’ll tell them what I think. It’s completely free.” To check out Louis’s Helpout: Click here. Big ups, Louis!
