Job Description

The Art Director is responsible for the overall supervision of the agency’s creative product, both design and copy. The creative director interfaces between the client, the account executive and the creative department. The creative director is responsible for taking strategic marketing plans and interpreting them into “big ideas.”

The Art Director assigns all creative projects within the agency staff and chooses which freelancers will work on which creative assignments. The creative director approves all creative work before presentation to the client, first reviewing the creative work with the account executive, taking the account executive’s requests for change into consideration. Most of all, the creative director should have a “vision” about the importance of the creative product to the future success of the agency.
