Rich is a copywriter in Boston, formerly at Arnold. Actually, he was recently let go by Arnold, which would be a bummer for anyone. However, Rich took the opportunity to write his colleagues a good-bye email that is, in his words, “at least as good as any of the other stuff I wrote while I was there.” Check out his email on AgencySpy here.

Kapil is a freelance writer/CD in Boston. Before going full-time global freelance superstar, he spent five years at Modernista!, but really MC can’t list everywhere he’s worked because it’s pretty much everywhere awesome. As copywriters, what we do is commerce and art. Some a little more commerce. Some a little more art. When you land on Kapil’s site, you immediately know. It’s art.

Roger is a copywriter at Arnold Boston. Each of the campaigns on his site is represented by a TV star of the 80′s. Funny. I spent a few minutes trying to determine if there was some link between a star and his/her campaign, but quit when I hit Alf for Progressive Truck Insurance. In addition to work for Progressive, Carnival and McDonald’s, Roger’s got a little stand-up on his site. Once again proving MC’s theory that surfers, drummers and comedians make awesome copywriters.

Tom is a copywriter/ECD at Brand Content in Boston. You know what’s great about portfolio sites? Versus the old portfolio portfolios? The archive section. If they love it, it’s like extra credit. If they don’t love it, it’s like, so what? It’s the archive section. (Plus, for writers, it means being able to include your fave headlines on one-shots, spec ads, oldies, and so-so art directed pieces.) Be sure to check out Tom’s archive section. Some awesome work in there. Glad we got a chance to see it.

David is a copywriter/EVP/GCD at Arnold Worldwide in Boston. His site is more than advertising. It’s the creative output of one David Register, including photos, a kids book, and a collage he made for his son. Love it.

Mark is a senior copywriter at Arnold Boston. Check out the campaign he wrote for Progressive. How many opportunities do you get to do something like that? Not many. Tip ‘o the Hat.
September 27th, 2010
Chris is a copywriter at Arnold, previously at Butler Shine and W+K. About the above ad, Chris writes: “Our campaign for Old Spice Hair & Body Wash pioneered the quasi-science of Hairchetypology. The print work reveals the known hairchetypes, while the online work encourages users to discover their own hair/body profile and what it says about them.” Name a better job than copywriter. Dare you.

Frank is a junior copywriter at Hill Holiday in Boston. So cool to see what a writer can do at an awesome shop in a year and a half.
June 7th, 2010
Tim is a copywriter/GCD/VP at Hill Holiday in Boston. There are many sites on MC that make me jealous, but this one is way up there. So much great TV. I think I’ve watched “Karate” like 30 times now. And Miller Lite “Epidemic” (I can’t taste my beer!) is just awesome.
May 26th, 2010
Will is a copywriter/ACD at Arnold Boston. He shares a site with art director/ACD partner Rob Kottkamp. I can count on two hands the number of team portfolio sites on MC. (Maybe one hand?) Career creative teams have become rare. Will and Rob’s site shows what we’re missing. Tip ‘o the Hat.
May 10th, 2010
Todd is a copywriter/ACD at Arnold Boston, Publicis West and Core before that. Hurray, awesome copy! Check out Jack Daniel’s, Virgin Mobile, Montsanto, St. Louis Dispatch, and Never Compromise Golf. Todd also has a Thievery Corporation vid on his site. One of my faves.
May 3rd, 2010
Mike is a copywriter/ACD at Arnold Boston, Butler Shine and CP+B before that. One of the things I like best about blog portfolio sites is how deep you can go, how much work you can show, without bogging down visitors with a billion clicks. Mike’s done a ton of killer work and his site is way deep. The blog format makes it fun to go exploring. Check out a Volvo piece here, BK there, Truth, Epson, VW, Earthlink, Monster, Puma, Miller Lite …

Shane is a freelance copywriter/CD in Boston, previously at Modernista! and Arnold. This is an awesome portfolio. Print is full of just wicked writing and the TV … wow. He’s got 27 spots up there. Hummer, Bud, MTV, and one of my fave spots all-time, maybe even my all-time fave, “Milky Way” for the VW Cabrio.
