CREATIVE DIRECTOR

CREATIVE DIRECTOR


creative director  |krēˈātiv diˈrektər|   noun   (as seen through the eyes of Natalie Kathleen) A creative director naturally bridges the gap between design creation and execution within the product development process. Requiring multi-disciplined strengths as art director, copywriter, lead designer and project management, the creative director is a natural leader of design. Forward thinking allows great strategy and ideas to grow; while tangible design skills can breathe life to concepts quickly and efficiently. Whether product, graphic or advertisement design, it is key to be one with uncertainty and trust in pushing the limits in order to notably excel. As practice makes perfect, enjoyment in the journey breeds the true success. The bigger the challenge the greater the rewards.
