Art Direction

Art directors sweat all the details that most don’t think about. They live for concept and craft. It’s not just about making things look pretty – art directors must be strategic. Working hand-in-hand with copywriters, art directors brainstorm big ideas then go to work to bring them to life, whether through print, digital, outdoor, “made you look” non-traditional ideas and everything in between.

Creative Circus photographers & content creators bring a lot more to the creative table than their DSLR cameras.

They plan, gather and direct the process of making images, either working alone or with others. Content Creators produce compelling content that takes viewers on a journey. Content Creation requires a mixture of right-brained and left-brained activities — in other words, you’ll need to be organized and creative, analytical and associative, disciplined and diverse.
