Can anyone offer advice on how to transition from an art director role to a designer role? Art direction has been fascinating but ready to move away from tactical/campaign stuff.

This is interesting. I see a split in the past year between campaign art direction vs. design art direction.

Campaign art direction : more old school, traditional advertisement
Design art direction : production, hands-on, more technical and focused on craft

I recommend taking design classes to get started. Design gets very niche to a degree -

No problem. I’ve been transitioning from design to art direction, so I feel you

I worked with a person who was an art director at a big NYC agency then came to work with us as a senior designer. They were very used to finding talent, illustrators, other designers, but really struggled with DOING the work. Eventually they went back to that big agency and is a CD, last I checked.

Genuine question, what was your path to Sr. AD? Did you graduate with an AD degree?

I graduated with a non design BA degree but then earned a Certificate in Digital Design, that took about 2 years. I’ve been working as an AD since then pretty much.

I would suggest just practicing with some Skillshare classes around design theory, typography, and some of the fundamentals.
