Art Director Resume
An art director is the person responsible of performing different tasks in advertising, internet, publishing and many other industries. The main duty of an art director is to create art in order to communicate different ideas or feelings to the community. Mostly, an art director has to communicate visually so that he can stimulate moods and feelings. He also has to establish the vision of the collective imagination of people by resolving conflicts and discrepancies between various individual inputs. The art director needs to possess technical and graphic design knowledge. Usually, the art director decides what visual elements to use, what artistic style is good to use or when to use motion.
