Jesse is a copywriter/designer/comedian/troublemaker in Chicago. Crazy mix of projects on his site, from Teddy Goalsevelt to Drink It Interns (above). Love his Press page—makes MC wonder why more of us don’t have one. Dig it.

Shea is a copywriter at Cactus in Denver. MC was laughing all the way through his portfolio, from the testimonials on the home page, to his Extracurriculars projects (would really like to hear some of those Hot Tubbin’ voicemails), to his References focus group. So funny.

Jim is a copywriter/creative director at O’Brien Advertising in Denver. His site is called The Good Endeavor, aptly titled with projects for Banner Health, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Colorado hospital/anti-tabacco initiatives, and QuitDoingIt.com, a cool-looking site to help young adults quit smoking.

Jay is a senior copywriter in Denver. Lots of fun stuff in his portfolio, including mad libs biz cards for David Pahl Photography. If you’re a copywriter, at some point in your career you’re going to try a campaign/piece that uses mad libs, and 99.9999% of the time it will be DOA. Odds are, you’ll get feedback like “people hate word puzzles” or “people don’t like to read” or “that’s too much thinking.” Which is infuriating, because it’s true. But people should like to read, and they should like to think, and if we help them do that, aren’t we making the world a better place, one David Pahl Photography biz card at a time? These questions are too deep for MC. But nice work, Mr. Roth.

Scott is a senior copywriter at VITRO in San Diego. Know what makes MC happy? Flipping through a portfolio and seeing killer writing all over the place. Long copy writing. Pages and pages of it. Because that means someone was doing some writing, and selling some writing, and buying some writing, and producing some writing. Which makes MC happy. And that’s a good way to start a Friday.

Shea is a copywriter at Trumpet in New Orleans. (MC’s first New Orleans shop, during Mardi Gras, DING.) Don’t leave without checking out his bonus section, Lagniappe. Which, by the way, is a word that entered English from Louisiana French. Is MC throwing Mardi Gras beads all over this post or what?

Nikki is a copywriter/ACD at Integer in Dallas. Her site was submitted by friend of MC, Alan McCoy (thanks, man), who notes that she wrote the entire 7-Eleven site: from corn dog rollers to little chocolate donuts. Yum.

Joel is a senior copywriter at Integer in Denver. Don’t misses: CAT, Hooked On Phonics and NatureMade (print), falling snowflakes for Big Bear (TV), and an executive meltdown for Cisco (interactive).
