Visual Creative Directors are the creative leads at advertising and marketing companies, working with designers, artists, copywriters, sales teams and marketers to create a vision for products being sold. Visual Creative Directors plan advertising, oversee the inventive process and give guidance to the leading-edge people that work under them.
Their role is becoming increasingly crucial for all brands dealing with communication.
For this position multidisciplinary skills, a capacity for imagination and organization, as well as technical knowledge, are essential. Rare goods, practically. A Director of Visual and Creative Service is a manager capable of creative impulses, a finalizer of emotions, able to manage important budgets and meet strict deadlines.
