Interestingly, there are ACD roles at Droga. I know four people who have had that title at D5 NY. Here’s a screenshot of that part of their LinkedIn if you need to see it.

Droga pay is not good.

ACD is a role a lot of agencies are trying to do away with. They’ll honor it for a few but in general if they can avoid it they will. I’d bet those droga ACDs are exceptions

They recently got rid of it

No. They get to keep their title. Just no new ACDs.

So you go from senior to creative director? That seems like quite a leap. Anyone know why the change and how it’s working out?

An ACD who works on concepts with a partner and presents them to a CD was known as a senior art director/copywriter back in the day. Happy to see some are going back to that format. Wieden doesn’t even add the word “senior.”

Meanwhile, no one has answered OP’s original question. 🤔

Exactly why there needs to be another level between Lowly-paid Senior and Highest-tax-bracket Creative Director.
