Job Description for Sr. Art Director
A senior art director is usually a graphic design professional with many years of experience in their field. However, the “senior” portion of their title may only indicate this individual is in charge of a team of more junior designers. Regardless of whether he or she leads a team, a senior art director generally spends most of their time developing and implementing creative solutions to various types of graphic design problems. For example, they may design web sites, retouch photos for magazine covers, or create business-specific materials such as logos, business cards, brochures, and price lists. The type of materials they design and create depends largely on the company for which they work. Senior art directors are hired by a wide range of organizations, from video game houses to financial services firms to nonprofit institutions.Read More...
If the senior art director leads a team, then a certain portion of their time involves tasks such as mentoring junior design team members and providing feedback on their designs. They may or may not be responsible for periodic performance reviews and only sometimes have input into their team members' compensation levels.
Most companies prefer senior art directors to have a bachelor's degree in graphic design, as well as five to 10 years' experience in a related industry. Some companies want a potential employee to demonstrate their proficiency with a specific software program by holding a certification, particularly Adobe products such as InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator.
