Forgot to mention that I am currently working as a senior graphic designer, and I want to transition to AD. So, I applied to a mid-sized shop and landed an in person interview! However, this would be my first time ever as an official AD, and I dont want to seem too much of a rookie...

Make sure you have a good pitch as to why your experience as a senior designer makes you different to the other applicants. Good luck!

Depending on the shop they may want to further understand your conceptual process. They’ll likely choose something in your book and ask what your involvement with the project was. If they choose a project you didn’t lend much help to the big idea, then point them to a campaign you helped craft the idea for. They’ll likely then ask you how you got to that idea. How did XYZ ad come to be?

What’s your process like for concepting campaigns? What’s an example of a big idea campaign that you love and why?

How would you describe a big idea? What does it mean to you?

Art director and designer are two complete different roles. Art direction is about bringing ideas to life. It’s not design.

For ladies: Are there any BB or CC creams that cater to our complexion? I love Fenty but think it’s a bit too heavy to wear during the summer days. For reference: I’m 420/430 in Fenty.

So many good people were expendable overnight. Promises made weren’t kept. And, the lack of class in execution has left wounds filled with depression. I hope the billions saved was worth it. Twenty years of loyalty reduced to a six minute script. Twenty years of high performance, sleepless nights for firm imposed project deadlines, and all that chatter about the importance of supporting women and minorities was all out the door in 3 months. Deloitte was better with Englebert.
