Being a Creative Director is the perfect job for strong leaders who love having autonomy over large projects. They typically head a team of other creatives, including graphic designers, copywriters, videographers, or marketers, depending on the company's needs. Although creative directors typically report to a higher-up marketing officer, they maintain control over the day-to-day management of their endeavors.

Creative Director Qualifications

Skill and educational requirements can vary depending on the creative projects that need to be managed. Teams who create physical advertisements for magazines or billboards would most benefit from a leader with a background in graphic design. Those working on video commercials need someone with production experience.

Beyond educational qualifications, creative directors also need a variety of people skills. When overseeing a large group, they will need to be able to handle and mitigate conflict. They also should possess time management skills, with the ability to break long projects into manageable steps and tasks.
