Mike is a copywriter at VML in NYC where he helped create the above Moto Dojo campaign highlighting Motorola’s Moto Action. There are times when every copywriter gets lost in the grind of penning 500 tags for some new product that doesn’t really need a tag and questions, “Why? Is this really a job? Is what I do worthy of my short time on this planet?” Then comes along a project like Mike’s Moto Dojo and it all goes out the window. Of course this isn’t a real job. Look at what we do. And yet, somehow, they pay us. Shhh.

Jordan is a copywriter/ACD at Slingshot in Dallas. Since is last post on MC (09.27.13), he’s moved from Cargo to Squarespace (as many of us are doing) and added a bunch of new work to his site, including Terminix, Texas Tourism and Taco Bueno (above). Definitely time for an update!

Reid is a senior copywriter moving to NYC from Minneapolis in June. (Congrats!) Leave it to someone from Minnesota to come up with the idea of asking a guy to live in a snow globe as the agency holiday stunt (above, for McKinney). Too perfect.

Jordan is a copywriter/ACD at Slingshot in Dallas. Since his last post on MC (08.05.2010), he’s got a new Cargo site and all kinds of new work up on it. Including a campaign for Warheads, featuring “The Teeth.” MC imagines what it was like being the set designer, getting that call. “So, like, there’s like this giant mouth, and like, two of the teeth are people, Sour Tooth and Sweet Tooth …”

Chelsea is a junior copywriter at Tribal DDB in NYC and a stand-up comedian. (Once again proving MC’s theory that comedians and drummers make the best copywriters.) Don’t miss her video for Docracy: “What It Feels Like To Be A Freelancer.” Word.

Aaron is a copywriter/CD at Sarkissian Mason in NYC. His portfolio rocks. Just a fantastic crazy swirl of digital, experiential, virtual new world awesomeness. Get ready to geek out on this one. Love it.

Steven is a copywriter/CD/VP at McCann NYC. You know what’s awesome? When a CD with the credentials, portfolio and experience that Steven’s got includes a campaign on his site that’s all about making “the 5th floor of Ogilvy’s old office a livelier place.” Love it.

Ted is a copywriter/ACD at R/GA in San Francisco. He’s written and illustrated a hilarious book called Paper Doll Orgy, which features a quote from Conan O’Brien on the front, “Ted McCagg is a truly original thinker who really makes me laugh. And for that, I hate him.”

Jordan is a senior copywriter at TM in Dallas. On his site is a series of posters welcoming IT Specialists to a server convention in Las Vegas. No visuals. No budget. Just words and a drop of type design. That, my friends, is copywriting.

Liz is a copywriter/CD at Tribal DDB. So cool to see all of the different ways copywriters display their work. I was trying to think of how to describe Liz’s first five or six projects, and the word “placemats” popped into my head. Placemats with video, sound effects and links. So cool.

Barbara is a senior copywriter at Tribal DDB in NYC, Ogilvy and R/GA and Big Spaceship before that. With all of that awesome interactive experience, and projects like HBO Voyeur, Nike+ and OfficeMax Arcade in her portfolio, what does Barbara’s site look like? Some big interactive production? Nope. Nine projects you can click through in about two minutes. And all of the info you could want for each project, right there, easy as Sunday morning.
