Which Career Sounds Like You?

How to Apply

Creative thinkers are in high demand. Everything you touch, read, or experience has to be designed by someone. That someone could be you! Explore the careers below. Which sounds the most interesting to you?

Art Direction

What is an art director? Someone who is filled with different ways of looking at the world. They notice what others miss like the crack in the sidewalk that looks exactly like a dog. Always ready to explore new things. Art directors might collect old engravings or vinyls of rhythm and blues. They write, draw cartoons or cover a wall, like wallpaper, with interesting twigs. Creativity is in their blood.

Art directors make the world more interesting. They team with a copywriter to come up with ideas and then craft the visuals for everything you see from a music video, to memes, to a campaign to raise money for cancer research. When you have a career in advertising as an art director everyday is different. You’ll brainstorm, work with typefaces and color, select models, go on photo shoots and to client presentations.

Design

How to describe a graphic designer? Maker? Inventor? Planner? Social scientist? All that and more. Graphic designers seek a more beautiful, usable and more thoughtful world. Graphic designers shape the future by bringing brands to life, aligning companies with their purpose and creating social change.

They may design packaging, publications, new products or the interface for a music app to make it more intuitive to use. They examine form, function and design. Fascinated with typography, furniture and signage. With space itself. From store design to club design. To the simplest object. Tape holder to toothbrush. The world is the graphic designers’ plaything.

Strategic Planning

You know the strategic planner within seconds of a conversation. Lightning fast brain. Pulling up facts faster than Wikipedia. Like the girl always in the front row in high school. Hands in the air before anyone else. Or the brainiac boy who dueled with her. Well, they graduated and became a strategic planner. A profession designed for them.

Strategic planners use their logical, inquisitive mind to begin the journey of creativity and discovery to get at solutions. They use data, science, mythology and anything in between to discover the insights and opportunities that spark ideas, innovative experiences, product solutions and even total business transformations. Strategic planners partner with the creative, UX, media and technology departments to provide direction and outline measurable goals.

Photography and Video

Photographers are the great storytellers of our time. Incredibly versatile. Still photographs. Video stories. They document the great events of the world and small moments of our lives. They blog. They write. Record voices––cheers and tears. They are the artists of social media.They capture the wacky, inventive world for Instagram. Photoshop magicians. And the very first to explore whatever comes next down the internet pike. Everyone knows how to take a photograph but the true photographer knows how to take a memorable image. Whether the equipment is a Hasselblad or a smart phone, the real photographer is the one with the eye and the heart.

And the really good news––jobs galore for photographers today! Why? Because many brands are making their own content creation studios. Design studios are also creating their final projects instead of sending the work out to be produced. Even ad agencies are producing their concepts in their own in-house studios. Photographers, this is your time..
