Greg is a copywriter in Salt Lake City, currently at MRM/McCann. He’s got a shiny new Carbonmade site and a bunch of fun writing all over it, from brand identity manifesto to words on the side of a beer can. Got to take advantage of every opportunity, because you never know what’s going to hit. Dig it.

Ryan is a copywriter at McCann NYC. Since her last post on MC (May 4th, 2010), she’s added all kinds of killer new work including the above stop animation for Sony Xperia, directed by Wes Anderson. Yes, it’s awesome. And yes, MC is more than a little jealous. Tip ‘o the hat, Ryan.

Greg is a copywriter/CD at Ogilvy NY. He’s got a brand new site and a bunch of new work to go with it, including an interactive touch wall for IBM at the US Open, and three new spots for IBM. But honestly, there’s so much killer work in Greg’s portfolio, any excuse to post it again is a good excuse.

Marcelo is a senior copywriter at Ogilvy São Paulo. Fun fun fun fun fun. All kinds of fun work all over Marcelo’s site. For his post, it was between the above and one of his Huggies print ads, featuring ET poops and pees in UFOs battling against laser-weilding diaper aliens. Such a tough call.

Jim is a copywriter/CD in Portland and a fellow Oregon Duck (Go Ducks!). Love the way he presents digital on his site. You can click around and explore it for yourself, or you can watch a killer highlight reel set to the Chemical Brothers in two and a half minutes. Dig it.

Andrei is a senior copywriter at Energy BBDO in Chicago. As MC regulars know, I sometimes get a little jealous of Chicago CWs. Of their accounts, specifically. Like Altoids, Orbit and Corona in Andrei’s book. Two Corona beach shoots. Plus a Corona beach microsite (a classic). Arrrrg.

Mikal is a copywriter in NYC. In addition to print, TV, web and alternative media on his site, Mikal also has Onion headlines, a cartoon and a race—The First Annual Billy Burg Bolt. That’s the first footrace in a portfolio on MC, if we’re not mistaken. Tip ‘o the hat, Mr. Cook.

James is a copywriter at McCann in Birmingham, UK. He shares a shiny new Cargo site with art director Tim Jones, and they’ve added all kinds of new work to it, including Vauxhall, Harley-Davidson and Avis. Don’t miss: McCann Birmingham Recruitment. Wonder how that would that play in the States?

Jason is a copywriter/ACD/VP at McCann in Los Angeles. MC saved this one special for the holiday, because it’s deep (22 projects) and fun. Think of it as an excuse for getting away from the fam for a little breather. “Going to go down to the basement for a few, Uncle Herm. Got to check out this big portfolio site.” Don’t forget to grab a bottle of something on your way down. And a turkey leg.

Mark is a copywriter/CD in NYC. All kinds of awesome work on his site, including a mini-campaign within the MasterCard Priceless campaign about a boy and his Zamboni. And check out kissinglink.com for Dentyne. Who have the people you’ve kissed kissed?

Andrew is a copywriter/CD at R/GA in NYC. What a crazy fun mix of work on his site, including tons of great digital. Be sure to click on “Intel, Web Film, Changed” (top row, third from right). We all have moments as copywriters, moments when we know we’ve made it. Like when you’ve hired a rock band and paid them however much to set up on the 10th floor of an office building and crank out a song about middle management I.T. Good stuff.

Miguel is a copywriter at Fullsix Portugal. This is a fun one. Can’t imagine what it was like on the set of his Mostra-me spot. Wow. Also, be sure to watch Miguel’s About Me video. It proves that he’s good with words in a way his work alone never could.

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.

Greg is a copywriter/ACD at Ogilvy NYC. Love how his site is written. Nothing on the home page, just clean. History and Honors is thorough but minimal. For each campaign, there’s just the right amount of set-up (when set-up is needed). And credits are fully blown-out, awards show-style.
April 4th, 2011
Steven is a copywriter/CD/VP at McCann NYC. You know what’s awesome? When a CD with the credentials, portfolio and experience that Steven’s got includes a campaign on his site that’s all about making “the 5th floor of Ogilvy’s old office a livelier place.” Love it.

Ted is a copywriter/ACD at R/GA in San Francisco. He’s written and illustrated a hilarious book called Paper Doll Orgy, which features a quote from Conan O’Brien on the front, “Ted McCagg is a truly original thinker who really makes me laugh. And for that, I hate him.”

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.

Malachy is a copywriter/CD in San Francisco. Love the silent video at the bottom right of each page – cool and arty and creepy all at the same time. Don’t misses: Nokia TV and About & Films (“A Single Woman” is awesome).

Pedro is a copywriter at JWT Portugal. Bunch of cool Vodaphone stuff on his site. Also, be sure to check out his self-promo “Mother.” From Pedro’s mother, at the ironing board, to Mother London. Nice.

Kate is a copywriter at McCann in NYC. She’s got Mr. T in a MasterCard commercial on her reel and it’s brilliant. Vintage bad-ass T, but even more bad-ass because he’s aged like a barrel of mean whiskey. (Barrel of mean whiskey? Sure. Go with that.) Good stuff.

Jeff is a freelance copywriter in San Francisco. Name a good agency in SF, chances are Jeff has written for them over the past 10+ years. So, asks you, what does it take to be a successful freelance writer in SF for that long? Three things. One, a bionic brain. Two, nice person. Three, I don’t know number three. If I knew, I’d be a freelance copywriter in SF like Jeff.

Michael is a freelance copywriter/CD in San Francisco. So, what do you do if you’ve been a SVP/GCD at McCann for awhile, and most everyone in town knows you’re awesome, and you’ve got a ton of work to show, but instead of showing it on your site you decide to make people laugh? Well, you do this:
