Julie is a copywriter/principal/ECD at Giant Noodle in Dallas. Her portfolio is just loaded with awesome writing. If you’ve ever had to pen something for the Super Bowl, for a client that didn’t officially sponsor the Super Bowl, you must check out Dean’s Dip.

Krista is a copywriter at TM in Dallas. In addition to checking out her work, be sure to visit her blog Badder Homes & Gardens, The Bad Girl’s Guide to Good Housekeeping. Ridiculous fun.

Alan is a copywriter at The Integer Group in Dallas. He’s got all kinds of killer clients in his book, but the first is just ridiculous. How does it feel to have a Lamborghini brief land on your desk? One can only hope Alan got to do a little product research.

Yutaka is a copywriter at Wieden + Kennedy in Tokyo. His previous site, yutakasucks.com, was featured on Modern Copywriter on 01.13.2010. His new site is just as amazing and absolutely, completely worthy of its own post.

Nate is a senior copywriter at Proximity BBDO in Chicago. His site is one long horizontal scroll, left to right. Love that. It starts with the words “The more you find interesting, the more you can make interesting.” Love that. I now know what Guacamolito sauce looks like. Love that.

Jennifer is a copywriter/ACD at Energy BBDO in Chicago. She shares a site with art director/creative partner Krystyn Campbell. They call themselves AdCreatures and they look like a hell of a lot of fun (as well as super talented). Check out Jennifer’s Save The Date postcard, the last piece in Other. Tell me you don’t wish you were at that wedding.

Brett is a copywriter at Arnold Boston, AKQA before that. He’s done some crazy amazing interactive, including work for the NHL, truth, and an absolutely outrageous site for Fallout 3.

Brock Davis is an art director/Group CD at Carmichael Lynch in Minneapolis, and MC’s first Honorary Copywriter. Check out the top link on the left: msced09. It stands for “Make Something Cool Every Day” which Brock did every day of 2009. Scrolling through it will blow your mind. Killer idea after killer idea.

Alexandra is a senior copywriter at Goodby in San Francisco, before that an ACD at Evolution Bureau. Going through her site makes me feel like the PC guy standing next to the Mac guy. Just wow.

Jake is a senior copywriter at Hoffman|Lewis in St. Louis. His site is titled “Pile” and that’s just what it is: a pile of print you pick through. (Fun.) Be sure to check out the “Me” page. Jake sums it up right.

Ashley is a senior copywriter at Saatchi NY, GSD&M and Chiat before that. Her site is minimal. Her work is hilarious.

Jessica is a freelance copywriter in Portland, Wieden + Kennedy before that. It’s no secret that I’m a huge Janet Champ fan. So, I do not give out the following compliment lightly. Jessica’s ideas and writing, while completely her own, give me goosebumps in the same way Janet’s do. Her work is honest and beautiful and inspiring and awesome.

Troy is a copywriter/CD at Ogilvy & Mather Singapore, BBDO and Saatchi before that. His work is amazing. As for his site – there are two, a new site and an old site. It’s really interesting to compare them. Portfolio sites seem to fall into two general camps. One, get out of the way and showcase the work. Two, create a site that’s a piece in itself. Troy’s new site is in the first camp, a clean blog that’s super easy to nav. His old site is in the latter camp, and is both gorgeous and fun to play around on.

Kevin is a copywriter/CD at Apple in Cupertino. Check out his TV/interactive reel. Great stuff, including a couple of episodes of one of my favorite web video campaigns EVER, The True Adventures of Chad, The Guy Who Was So Into Super Monkey Ball™ Deluxe That He Decided To Live In A Ball.

Yutaka is a copywriter at Creature Seattle, CP+B before that. His work sucks. (Not really.) His site sucks. (Not really.) He sucks. Or, that’s what his site proclaims. Absolutely, positively hysterical. Love it love it love it.
[UPDATE.01.19.2010: Yutaka is no longer at Creature, he moved back to Japan]

Matthew is a copywriter at BBDO NY. His site is on Carbonmade. You’ll recognize every spot on his reel. They’re all big brand national spots and they’re all good.
January 11th, 2010
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.

Colin is a freelance copywriter in NYC, Goodby before that. There are a couple of not-miss pieces on his site that I must point out and you Must. Not. Miss. Under Internet, check out the HBO short films directed by Sam Mendes. And under Writing, go to McSweeney’s Humor Essays and read “It’s Decorative Gourd Season, Motherfuckers”. It made coffee shoot out my nose.

Mike is a senior copywriter at Butler, Shine, Stern & Partners in Sausalito, Cole & Weber before that. Awesome awesome awesome site filled with amazing work. I’m a sucker for the long copy, and Mike’s writing on his US Department of State campaign is just beautiful. Give yourself some time to savor and enjoy this one.

Jake is a copywriter at Goodby in San Francisco, Saatchi NY before that. Good writers have the ability to shed themselves and write in character. Good copywriters have the ability to shed themselves and write in brand. (I just made that up. Deep!) Stepping through Jake’s book, he just nails brand after brand. His Tide campaign is clean. His ASPCA campaign is heartbreaking. His Fruit By The Foot ad is fun. His Hyundai campaign is a Cannes Lions 2009 Titanium Award Winner.

Matt is a freelance copywriter/CD in San Francisco. Before going solo, he did time at Cutwater, Chiat, Goodby, Venables, Leagas, Citron, A&L, and Ingalls. (Wow.) And yes, his book is as good as his rez.

Ben is a copywriter at Grey NY. Before that, he was an intern at The Village Voice. He graduated from Duke in ’05 and already has a nice reel (Captain Morgan, E*Trade) on his site and a Gold Pencil on his mantel. Except he’s in NYC, so the Gold Pencil is probably on top of his mini-fridge.
