Brian is an art director/designer/CD in San Francisco, previously at start-up Madison Reed in SF and DigitasLBi Chicago, Ogilvy Chicago, and Doner Detroit before that. He’s got a beautiful Squarespace site that shows off six brands/projects for Madison Reed, Bumble & Bumble, Dove, Interface, Jim Beam, and BP Stations. Dig it.

Mark is a freelance copywriter/ACD in Boston with a brand new Squarespace site. One of the coolest things about looking through writer portfolio sites is seeing all of the ways that we market ourselves as storytellers. While most of us are now either on Squarespace or Cargo, the ways in which we tell our stories on those platforms can be very different.

Pete is a senior copywriter at Arnold Worldwide Boston. Lots of cool projects on his site for clients like SolarCity, Ram Trucks, Jack Daniel’s, Arbella Insurance, Progressive, Carbonite, Sprint, and WMBR (above). Love the airport baggage claim shredder for Sprint. So smart.

Mark is a writer/ACD at Y&R Chicago. Since his last post on MC (way back on 10.25.10), he’s revamped his site and loaded it with all kinds of new projects: Tyson Anytizers (above, “I’m starrrving!”), Dunkin’ Donuts, Progressive, Ocean Spray, Volvo, and more. Way past time for an update. Way past time for MC to heat up some Boneless Chicken Wyngz. Not kidding.

Kerry is a copywriter/CD in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina. She’s also a good friend/former agency comrade of MC, from all the way back when Arnold had a San Francisco shop. (Was it really that long ago?) So happy to have her posted up, at last. Dig it.

Brian is a freelance senior copywriter in Los Angeles. Lots of web and print work on his Krop site, including several visual print campaigns for Yokohama tires. MC has received a bunch of emails lately asking the best way to find freelance writers based on location (including Los Angeles). All writers on MC are tagged with their location at the time of their post. So, all you have to do is scroll down the sidebar to the right until you reach LOCATION. Then find the city or country you’re looking for and click on it. Those writers will appear as their own page. That easy!

David is a copywriter/CD in Atlanta. Don’t miss his social campaign for RaceTrac (convenience stores and gas stations in the southern United States) around their “endless bevy of fountain drinks,” for which David got to make up fictitious soda concoctions and name them—the ultimate dream job of every 13-year-old boy who ever lived in the southern United States. Good times.

Lane is a copywriter/ACD at Critical Mass in NYC, formerly at mcgarrybowen, Digitas, Hill Holiday, and FCB. Like many writers, he’s done some interesting stuff on the side, too. Like being Editor of Capital, a lifestyle magazine for the financial services industry. You can click through an issue in the Editorial section of Lane’s site. Very cool.

Brett is a copywriter/ACD at Colangelo in NYC. Awesome mix of work on his site, from print to banners. Can we talk about banners for a second? The best way to show ’em? We think Brett’s nailed it. Motion screen capture, edited into a little video, and then posted on Vimeo. Easy for everyone. (NOTE: Motion capture software. We like iShowU. You can get it at shinywhitebox.com for $30.)

Paul is a senior copywriter at IQ in Atlanta. Some awesome writing in his book, including hilarious South Park Little League yard signs. His site is hosted on Krop, the second on MC. From Paul’s LinkedIn page: “Not sure how cool this is, but I worked at Disney World as Chip & Dale while at school.” So cool.

Matt is a San Francisco copywriter who, as it happens, was a college buddy of mine at U of Oregon. You know what’s not fair about writers like Matt? Writers who worked at good interactive shops like T3? Their slick sites that you just know were done in 30 minutes by one of their punk interactive buddies. Whatever, Matt. The rest of us use blogs. Free blogs. Like writers are supposed to use. Jerk.
