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.
If you review our portfolio, you’ll see a lot of work with progressive nonprofits and government agencies. It represents about 90% of our work each year. It’s a dynamic, constantly changing space that always presents fresh challenges. The rest of our work is mainly focused on corporate social responsibility and DEI (diversity, equity, inclusion) for businesses and brands. Over half of our work each year is with repeat clients.
Our clients say that there’s nothing cookie-cutter in our portfolio. They say we capture the unique DNA of their brand. That’s huge for us. You’ll be instrumental in helping us continue to do that.
