Since 2009, Modern Copywriter has featured hundreds of awesome copywriter portfolio sites. Over the years, one of the most common questions MC has been asked is, “When are you going to start modernartdirector.com?” Well, it’s time. Except, we’re going to do it a little different than that.
ModernCopywriter.com is now open to copywriters, art directors, designers, teams, and other creatives with amazing portfolio sites—but it’s still going to be Modern Copywriter (rather than a collection of sites). Few reasons for that. First, having a single site will generate the most traffic for your posts and when it comes down to it that’s what ya’ll are here for—traffic to your portfolio sites. Two, I’m a copywriter and it’d be silly for me to write posts from any other perspective. Three, maintaining one site is so much easier than two, three, or four. Finally, trademark, legal and URL issues blah blah blah.
NOTE: If you just want to see copywriters, click on “Copywriters” in the sidebar on the right and everyone else magically disappears.
There you have it. As always, thanks to everyone in the MC community. Here’s to the next six years!

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: email@example.com

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.

Rob Kerr, Executive Creative Director of Bright Red\TBWA in Tallahassee, Florida is on the hunt for junior, mid-level and senior copywriters (no ACDs or CDs, please). From Rob: “The Southeastern outpost of \TBWA has been on a new-business roll lately and is currently accepting books.
Do you believe big ideas can come from anywhere? We do. We expect them from you, consistently. 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. This is not for the faint-of-heart — you will be juggling multiple assignments, often with tight deadlines and will be expected to win awards. Sound like you?
Don’t apply if you have your heart set on working in New York. Tallahassee, Florida couldn’t be further from Madison Avenue. Think small-town hustle meets global muscle.”
Send your portfolio to Rob at: firstname.lastname@example.org

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.

Jose is a senior copywriter Dieste in Chicago. 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.)
