Our Art Directors are kind of obsessive about making things look great. They live with their Wacom Stylus in their hand, have major experience in type and design, in making beautiful comps that capture and convey their ideas. They are thirsty sponges absorbing ideas and images from every corner of the web, of the newsstand, and everyday life.

We know great art directors do more than jostle type and have lunch with photo reps. They brainstorm, strategize, know their clients’ business like they know their Frutiger from their Futura. They live for leading-edge design. They thrive in the details, but can also step back and paint the proverbial big picture.
