"I LOVED the challenge of going through the steps of hiring a team, establishing procedures and guidelines for editorial, creative and production oriented workflows was a great learning experience. I also enjoy the sense of accomplishment after so many painstaking hours spent on producing elements of a book, then finally seeing the printed piece is enriching. The managerial duties is what I sometimes hated as it sometimes interfered with what I was trying to accomplish at any given moment."

Art Director at Possible Worldwide
in Cincinnati, OH

"The thing I hate about being an AD is the state of limbo between directing and doing. This is hard to manage. Choose one or the other, don't try to do both. Also, the expectation that you need to progress to a Creative Director. If you like being an AD, do it well. Good AD's are a huge asset to every organization."

"I am a team cheerleader by nature. I enjoy motivating talented people to do their best work and think outside the box. Client facing is perfect for me given my social demeanor. Concept development and presenting to a client is a lot of fun. Being an Art Director rocks!"

Art Director at Neon Games
in Los Angeles, CA

"As art director, I'm responsible for the look of the games, their overall design, and that everyone maintains that style throughout. I really enjoyed be able to direct this aspect of games, rather than adhering to someone else's style, and hope I have a chance to do it again in the future."

Art Director at University of Texas

Art Director at Benham Advertising
in Chino, CA

"I love the fast paced environment and the never ending challenges that this industry presents. Working late into the nights and achieving the final end-goal is always a rewarding feeling. The not-so-good about it, is having to deal with the many different opinions and critiques from customers who never seem to be fully satisfied in the long run. Having to educate them on your (and your company's) professionalism is tedious and time consuming."
