Art Director

SUMMARY

When it comes down to a great AD, to me my 3 pillars are:

I. Intense attention to detail and mainly for delivering the client’s vision. No one wants to waste time seeing round 30 of that presentation.

II. Hands-on experience. For me, this means a lot of production experience. I’ve made some complex animations and video edits, down to on-air print graphics. Along the way, that means a lot of tricks in knowing how to make things faster.

III. Staying top of mind. Being a savvy AD should mean knowing their trade. For me, that means doing my research, figuring how to make it brand-able and unique while still efficient and creativity through my diverse background.
