What is an Art Director?

Art Direction: 2-Year portfolio Program

Art directors are dreamers with an imagination gone wild. They get paid to think, imagine, explore and tinker. Together with a copywriter they brainstorm ideas for websites, commercials, print ads, billboards, phone apps or any other medium that can solve the client’s problems. The team uses their knowledge of pop culture and insights into the human condition to create content that is meaningful, entertaining or useful to consumers.
