Hello, this is a question for Art Directors. I have been a senior graphic designer for many years and I would like to transition into an Art Director position but it seems like every job I try to apply for asks for experience on my resume. I'm not sure if they are over looking me because of it.

My question is how did you get to become an art director?
Is there any advice for us designers that are looking to make that switch?

1 week sober! Over the last 12 years (I’m early 30s) I’ve reached this point just a handful of times. Alcohol is deeply intertwined into my social life much like everyone’s is I imagine. Feeling clear minded and energized. Want to stay clean for my own mental and physical health and for the benefit of my wife and children. Just starting this journey so thank you in advance to this community as I’m ready to learn from you all and be a part. Let’s go!

I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who shares in this group. It truly helps me stay sober. I am approaching 12 months sober but have been struggling lately. While I have not relapsed, I’ve been close. Normally, before I get out of bed, I write down my reason to stat sober for the day, but lately the reasons have been lousy at best. But reading about everyone’s struggles and successes has helped get me through this past month. So thank you all for the inspiration to keep going strong!

been in downward spiral since COVID, struggling with being alone, loved the travel, teams. got depressed and angry. Dreaded work. In the process got to drinking 4 up to 15 drinks most days. Gained weight. Didn’t care about living. Have tried to stop over and over. Last week I woke up with a bloody nose and for the first time cared. I don’t know what changed. I am 7 days sober and I am starting to feel like the me I remember! I am proud! I am thankful! I just needed to share!

Downloaded the “Days” app. No frills, no extras. Just a number staring you in the face. I’ve made it almost habitual to open and check... even multiple times a day when I know the day counter hasn’t changed, but it’s helping and encouraging. Each day is a sense of accomplishment and a win over the pull of my own thoughts. Forcing my willpower into further restraint. 10 days strong so far.

Just did an export of my spending for the year to do a full breakdown. I spent almost $2k on liquor in the 6 months before I went into treatment:

February: $553.25
March: $418.04
April: $14.75
May: $150.38
June: $92.24
July: $283.16
August: $387.70

Total: $1,899.52

That amount comes out to 40 handles, but it’s probably about 2x since this doesn’t include what I bought with cash or drank with others paying.

Im shocked. But most importantly I’m grateful to be sober today. Keep working it gang!
