My Career
  • Art Director/Administrator
  • Art directors oversee the artistic design in advertisements as well as television commercials. They are responsible for the quality of the finished work. They gather a team of photographers, illustrators, and modelsto create the add.
  • Work Conditions:
  • Art directors work under constant pressure. There are always deadlines to meet, layouts to deliver to the printer, or commercials that must be taped as soon as possible. To get a magazine out on time, art directors must put pressure on the artists who work for them to finish their work on schedule. Delays in the production of a television commercial can be very expensive, and the art director is ultimately responsible for having everything ready on time and staying until the shooting is finished. There is very little job security in the advertising business. That means frequent job changes can occur at any time.
