Matt is a freelance writer/CD based in Malibu, California. Holy smokes has he worked everywhere good: Apple, Wieden+Kennedy, Fallon, 180la, Leagas Delaney, Goodby Silverstein & Partners, Media Arts Lab and Crispin Porter + Bogusky. At those shops, he’s done killer work for Apple, Nike, Netflix, Subaru, adidas, HP, Coke and CNET—including the classic spot above. So awkward. So genius. One of MC’s all-time faves.

Since his last post on MC, New York art director/creative director Vlad Ivangorodsky has gone full-time freelance and has added a bunch of new work to his site, including the above GoDaddy spot for Barton F. Graf 9000 (that almost made the Super Bowl). Always love posting Vlad’s site up on MC, even though he’s not officially a copywriter. Good ideas are good ideas are good ideas.

Since their last posts on MC, James Maravetz (01.28.13) and Vlad Ivangorodsky (honorary AD 10.15.12) have combined their insane portfolios into one super insane portfolio site. MC found it impossible to choose which project to feature, there’s so much killer work, but what’s above seemed appropriate. In athletics and creative, you can’t until you can.

Daniel is a freelance copywriter in [wherever awesome gigs appear]. His portfolio is ridiculous. Wieden, Crispin, Untitled Films Toronto … Volkswagen, Burger King, ESPN, Brahma, Levi’s, Best Buy, Little Trees Air Fresheners (?!?!) … just sick. Love it.

Chad is a copywriter/CD/entrepreneur/performer in Austin. Since his last post on MC (02.10.10), he’s got a ton of new work up on his site, launched like eight new companies, written and performed sketch comedy, done a bunch of voiceover work, and made some awesome silkscreen posters (including “Let’s Have a Meeting about a Meeting” above). MC gets tired just trying to sum it all up in one post. Tired, and inspired. Love it. This is what being a CW/idea factory is all about.

Brad is a copywriter/Global CD for Accenture at TBWA Chiat/Day NYC. His resume is sick: Chiat, W+K, GS+P, BBDO, 180. His site is loaded with big campaigns for monster clients like Pepsi, GE, Adidas, Old Navy, and includes a couple of classics for Got Milk? and Airwalk. Good times.

Vlad is an art director/CD at CP+B in Miami. His portfolio was one of MC’s rare Honorary posts for art directors (Feb 2011), because it’s just off the charts awesome with big ideas. Got a nice email from Vlad saying that that post helped him get his current gig, which MC loves to hear. Anyway, year and a half later, it’s time for an update. New site. New work. Still off the charts.

Lori is a senior copywriter/ACD in San Francisco, formerly at AKQA, GS&P and W+K. She’s got a bunch of cool interactive work on her site that was done recently, so I apologize for featuring the old milk board above. (Couldn’t help myself.) How about Lori’s site? And old-school Blogger simply titled BOOK. Who needs a fancy site when you have fancy work?

Zach is a copywriter at W+K Amsterdam. Q: How many projects do you need to show on a portfolio site? Zach’s got five on his. They’re all awesome. From those five, you know he’s awesome. A: Five.

Chris is a copywriter at Arnold, previously at Butler Shine and W+K. About the above ad, Chris writes: “Our campaign for Old Spice Hair & Body Wash pioneered the quasi-science of Hairchetypology. The print work reveals the known hairchetypes, while the online work encourages users to discover their own hair/body profile and what it says about them.” Name a better job than copywriter. Dare you.

Marc is a senior copywriter at CP+B in Boulder, after four years at W+K, after graduating from VCU. That’s how you do it. His site is as awesome as … ham panties. (Print: Weber)

Josh is a copywriter/CD in NYC, previously at DDB, Martin, W+K, TBWA Chiat, and GS&P. Once again proving MC’s theory that surfers make stellar copywriters.

Andrew is a copywriter/ECD at NBC Universal, previously at CP+B, CAA, JWT, W+K, Leagas Delaney, and Fallon. I want this portfolio when I grow up. That’s all I have to say.

Will is a senior copywriter at Razorfish in Portland. How much does MC love the Pacific Northwest? W+K, Razorfish, Publicis, Creature, Cole & Weber, WongDoody, Wexley School For Girls … awesome. Plus, U of Oregon (Ducks!). So much great advertising. And the best people anywhere.

Scott is a copywriter/CD in Chicago, previously at CP+B, Cramer Krasselt, Chiat Day, GS&P, Leagas Delaney, and W+K. His site is divided into two halves: Writer and Creative Director. Both are just stellar.

Sally was a copywriter/CD at W+K, Fallon, Martin, her own shop, and then she opened a CP+B office. Since then, she’s done more with her career than 10 average copywriters combined, including writing the popular book Radical Careering (above). What else can I say? She’s Sally Hogshead. Her career is what’s possible.

Sean has moved to W+K NYC from Anomaly. It makes me so happy to write that. Not that he left Anomaly. Anomaly is awesome. But Sean and I went to Oregon together, and there’s a bond between Oregon and W+K that’s deep. Seeing Sean land at Wieden makes everything right in the world. Big congrats, Sean. And for the zillionth time, thanks for Reservoir Dogs and The Afghan Whigs.
