Art & Science
Artists often create artwork in order to convey feelings, ideas and thoughts. Artists use various methods to illustrate the deepest recesses of feelings using a myriad of media. Computers, paint, watercolors, acrylic and pencils among others are used to show their artistry. Art directors are in demand since they are tasked to turn up with a blueprint of designs and present art in a whole new dimension.
Art directors work on newspapers, magazines, web sites as well as other digital and printed media. For publications and outfits, they often analysis, material and generate design concepts. Main working fields for art directors are publishing as well as advertising. As art directors, usually they are responsible for the projects and publications’ overall feel and visual direction. They take a decision on the excellent way to submit a visual concept, making sure that its appeal is eye catching as well as organized.
The overall design and layout of a project and publication is always under the supervision of an art director as they manage other art workers to do the principal layout and design of a project or publication.
Publishing companies are the regular employers of art directors. They often work in a standard workweek, but they often extend when there is a business need. Rendering overtime may be required, but it is seldom.
