Vlad is an art director/CD at CP+B in Miami. His portfolio was one of MC’s rare Honorary posts for art directors (Feb 2011), because it’s just off the charts awesome with big ideas. Got a nice email from Vlad saying that that post helped him get his current gig, which MC loves to hear. Anyway, year and a half later, it’s time for an update. New site. New work. Still off the charts.

Cassidy is a copywriter/ACD at Tris3ct in Chicago. (Portfolio submitted by friend of MC Alan McCoy, big ups.) Super clean presentation of her work, and such a writer-ish way to present it. All words: category columns, campaign groupings, individual titles. Did I mention super clean? Maybe that’s because Cassidy is not only a writer, but has been doing a lot of work recently for toilet tissues? (Sorry. Had to.)

Tyler is a senior writer at JacobsonRost in Chicago. First campaign on his site, for Mercury Marine Edge, is a real deal long copy print campaign. (They still make ‘em!) Add a QR code in the lower right corner and you just made an interactive long copy print campaign. New old school. How’s about that?

Ann is a copywriter/ACD at Euro RSCG in Chicago. The title of her site is “Fearless Copywriter in a Twisted World.” MC likes that. It is a twisted world. And CWs do have to be fearless when it’s time to put the words down on the paper. Or type the pixels onto the screen. Or present the stuff to the room. Or click open the email with the subject line “RND 1 FEEDBACK” with the red “!” next to it.

Marcelo is a copywriter at Euro RSCG 4D in São Paulo, Brazil. So fun to see the cool work coming out of São Paulo for brands that, in the States, are pretty straight. Check out Vanish, Finish, Veet and Trident. Are Brazilians just cooler than Americans? What a ridiculous question.

Jeremy is a West Coast freelance copywriter. He shares a site with NYC-based AD Marcio Kelmanson. Every once in a while, MC finds a site that just kicks our collective ass. This is one of those. The ideas are stellar. The writing is awesome. The art direction is beautiful.

Alexandre is a copywriter/CD at Grey Brasil. He’s got a brand new site on Wix (new to MC, far as we know) that’s beautiful. Some awesome new work, too.

Jeff is a copywriter/ACD at Cramer-Krasselt in Milwaukee. (Brand new gig, big congrats Jeff.) Check out this note to Jeff from Jason Alexander, after Jason received Jeff’s first script for his Jenny Craig Video Blog, “Jeff, I am literally blown away. Brilliant. I couldn’t have said it better. You truly got my voice down. I have no notes and anyone who knows me knows that is a first. It’s perfect. Go with it and thank you. If I ever run for office you are hired as my official speechwriter. Happy holidays. I’m telling my wife that I am blown away or in the words of George, ‘I am speechless. I am without speech’.” Nice.

Vlad is a freelance art director in NYC, most recently at W+K. Killer site and portfolio. Big ideas all over the place. After checking out Work, click on Other Stuff I Made. It just keeps going. Which makes it 100% worthy of an MC Honorary post (and then some).

Tim is a copywriter/GCD/SVP at Mullen. His portfolio just totally rocks. Spent 15 minutes debating myself over which piece to feature above. Awesome.

Brent is a senior copywriter at Sharpe Blackmore Euro RSCG in Toronto. Don’t misses: Premium Plus TV spot that actually manages to turn regular old crackers rock ‘n roll, and in Writing: Relationship Articles: My First Naked Dinner Party.

Scott is a copywriter/CD in Chicago, previously at CP+B, Cramer Krasselt, Chiat Day, GS&P, Leagas Delaney, and W+K. His site is divided into two halves: Writer and Creative Director. Both are just stellar.

Andrew is a senior copywriter at CP+B in Boulder. Don’t misses: Burger King’s King Roulette, Nike Punishment Tracks and VW Routan Boom. Just awesome.

Bill is a senior copywriter at EURO RSCG in Chicago, Grey Direct before that. His site starts with tasty campaigns for Brigid’s Bags and Parker Brothers … and then, wham! Check out the old school Rolex spreads. Fellow copywriters, if print is dying, know this: MC will be with you every step of the way. Together, we will march to the grave. Together, we will tap the dirt with our shovels. Together, we will raise our glasses to 36-point centered Palatino, 150 words of body copy and a tag that drives it all home in four. Salute!

David is a freelance copywriter/CD, previously at McCann, GS&P and Euro RSCG. He was also an Executive Producer at GS&P and Euro, which is an awesome “value add” (sorry). But that’s nothing. Check out his Experience page. What job hasn’t he had?

Andy is a copywriter at 72 and Sunny in Los Angeles, Modernista! and Euro RSCG before that. His site is a blast. Make sure you click on The Info and then, bottom of the page, The Fail. Andy can’t dunk.

Marcin is a freelance copywriter in Los Angeles, TBWA Chiat/Day and Euro RSCG before that. His portfolio is just sick. I wish I could have featured his Energizer print campaign above, because the writing is absolutely hilarious, but the type is too small for my blog. So, go check it out. And the Pedigree Adoption spots. And Tap Project. And … just go.

Alexandre is a copywriter at Leo Burnett São Paulo, Y&R and Euro before that. His site is one long blog page and there’s a bunch of video right at the top, so it takes about 10-15 seconds to load. Much of the work is in Portuguese, but even if you don’t speak it, you won’t care once you get into his book. Big ideas translate in any language.

Meredith is a freelance copywriter in San Francisco. Her site (which is gorgeous) has a really nice mix of traditional and interactive work.
