Hire Art Directors

The art of direction appears to be a mix of creating and persuading interest areas.  The Creating interest area part indicates a focus on being original and imaginative, and working with artistic media. The persuading interest area indicates a focus on influencing, motivating, and selling to other people. An art director is responsible for generating visual concepts in response to clients’ briefs that cover all media platforms.

Art directors mainly work along with art and design staffs in advertising agencies, public relations firms, and book, magazine, or newspaper publishers to create designs and layouts. The task given to them requires understanding the design elements of projects, inspire other creative workers, and keep projects on budget and on time. If you wish to create designs and layouts for your projects, you can hire art directors for this task. A number of freelance art direction services are also available on online top freelance sites.

What Art Directors Do?

In general, art directors are responsible for the visual style and images in magazines, newspapers, product packaging, and movie and television productions. Some of the key responsibility areas may include:

  • Decide how best to represent a concept visually

  • Take a decision on which photographs, art, or other design elements to use

  • Responsible for the overall look or style of a publication, an advertising campaign, television, or film set

  • Supervise design staff

  • Check and approve designs, artwork, photography, and graphics developed by other staff members 

  • Deciphering new ways to incorporate emerging and new media formats into campaigns.

  • Interact with clients to develop an artistic approach and style

  • Networking  with other artistic and creative departments

  • Develop detailed budgets and timelines

  • Present designs to clients for approval
