Art Direction

 

What is an art director? Someone who is filled with different ways of looking at the world. They notice what others miss like the crack in the sidewalk that looks exactly like a dog. Always ready to explore new things. Art directors might collect old engravings or vinyls of rhythm and blues. They write, draw cartoons or cover a wall, like wallpaper, with interesting twigs. Creativity is in their blood.

Art directors make the world more interesting. They team with a copywriter to come up with ideas and then craft the visuals for everything you see from a music video, to memes, to a campaign to raise money for cancer research. When you have a career in advertising as an art director everyday is different. You’ll brainstorm, work with typefaces and color, select models, go on photo shoots and to client presentations.

Photography and Video

 

Photographers are the great storytellers of our time. Incredibly versatile. Still photographs. Video stories. They document the great events of the world and small moments of our lives. They blog. They write. Record voices––cheers and tears. They are the artists of social media.They capture the wacky, inventive world for Instagram. Photoshop magicians. And the very first to explore whatever comes next down the internet pike. Everyone knows how to take a photograph but the true photographer knows how to take a memorable image. Whether the equipment is a Hasselblad or a smart phone, the real photographer is the one with the eye and the heart.

And the really good news––jobs galore for photographers today! Why? Because many brands are making their own content creation studios. Design studios are also creating their final projects instead of sending the work out to be produced. Even ad agencies are producing their concepts in their own in-house studios. Photographers, this is your time..
