Nick is a freelance senior copywriter/ACD in New York City. Before copywriting, he was in book publishing and online journalism (Chronicle Books, Thrillist, etc.), which is fabulous experience/training for the ad/marketing world. Lots of cool projects on his site for Uniqlo, Mercedes-Benz and others. Don’t miss DefundRefund—his side project funding Planned Parenthood in honor of the GOP politicians vowing to defund it.

Jason is a copywriter/CD at CSE in Atlanta. Since his last post on MC (09.18.13), he’s moved from Ogilvy to CSE, Cargo to Squarespace, and added all kinds of new work to his site, including Big Head Lee for Coke Zero (above). Time for an update!

Nick is a copywriter in Portland. Since his last post on MC (04.27.12), he’s got a new WordPress site and a bunch of new projects up on it—including a beautiful site for Nike Better World (from water bottles to performance gear, who knew?). Time for an update!

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.

Since Jason’s last post on MC (10/07/11), he’s gone from mcgarrybowen to Razorfish to his current gig, copywriter/ACD at Ogilvy in Atlanta. (Nice.) His site is still Cargo, MC’s fave for CWs, but he’s got all kinds of new work up. Like Change Your Hairitage for Aussie, above.

Nick is a senior copywriter at Razorfish in Portland. Click into his Print section and ahhh … hello there, copywriting. Nice to see you again. There are a few cities that just seem to make better copywriters: Minneapolis, San Francisco, Portland. Nick’s portfolio is proof again.

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.)

Jenn is a copywriter/ACD at Razorfish in NYC. She’s also a writer-writer. From her site: “Jenn has published articles in I.D., ReadyMade, Salon, Slate, and Wired, as well as several anthologies. She has also published short stories in Seed and Adbusters, and is the author of two books and a planner.” A copywriter who actually gets her on-the-side writing published. For reals. Tip o’ the hat, Jenn.

Luke is a copywriter at Razorfish in NYC, AKQA before that. His portfolio is a blast to poke around and explore. On top of page two is a site for Benjamin Moore that’s described like this: “What is the color of Rock n’ Roll? What is the color of passion? Of power? Of sound? Discover how others view color and express your own.”

Peter is a copywriter/ACD at CP+B in Boulder. His site another example of a crazy-talented senior creative with awesome interactive work moving to a low-maintenance, free-of-charge blog. Scroll to the bottom and there’s a link to his old site, so you can check out the difference. Viva la blog!
