A good creative director should be the manager and inspirational leader to the creative team. A hands-on Senior Designer,Art Director or Copywriter, creative leader and workflow manager, ensuring the highest standards of creative output by managing the team, their creative output and their ongoing development. The official definition would say that your job is to manage creative projects from concept to completion, translating marketing objectives into creative strategies, and directing the creative team in the production of advertising and marketing collateral. But that’s a very dry description of what you’re actually required to do. The best description is it's your job to create an environment within which people can do their best work. This means ensuring the briefs they're given are clear and full. Presenting and defending their work so that the best of it gets through. And ensuring they get useful feedback from each presentation, so their understanding of what's required continues to grow.

Thanks for the feedback!
Seems that creative and Atlantic records don't go hand in hand. They have no idea how to launch or support any new artist. They stay with the same ol' same ol'. They need to g…et some balls and get some new music out. Somebody has to tell them not everybody likes rap or hip-hop. CREATIVE? They haven't proven they are creative at all. Although there is a market for rap and such, they need to get some new sounds from new artists out. As an ol' musician I can't even listen to radio any more. Thank goodness for sirius radio where other record lables release stuff from new and interesting artists. I'm sure Atlantic has fresh new artists, get some balls and get them out! Or hire somebody that will.

I would say that you can't expect to just jump into the role of advertising creative director. It's about what you know, and in some ways, who you know, through the contacts a…nd networks that you build throughout your career. Be prepared to work hard, and long hours. Get an advertising degree under your belt. Experience and exposure to all aspects of the industry is vital, as creative directors need to be at the very cusp of latest trends and developments. If you're young, get yourself some paid or unpaid experience/internships at the very best digital or advertising agencies you can get into. Network. Build up your experience and supplement your knowledge as much as you can - understanding areas such as graphic design, web design, copywriting, artworking and art directing will help you gain the knowledge to move into the role of advertising creative director. It's all about immersing yourself in the business and starting from the bottom, working your way up from an account executive, and through to the role that you're after. Passion for advertising needs to be unwaivering, as well as your technical capacity - you'll need to know how to work with software such as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Flash, Dreamweaver, and perhaps even packages such as FinalCutPro and Lightwave or 3DStudioMax. Essentially a creative director is all about driving the ideas and coming up with innovative concepts - you have to be prepared to LIVE advertising and marketing.
