Design Director (Design)

While the creative director is responsible for the overall concept and delivery of creative work, the design director oversees the details of the design itself and make sure this is to a professional standard. As a design studio may take on numerous projects at the same time, the design director ensures that a certain level of quality is maintained across all projects – whether big or small. With a keen eye for detail and an excellent design sensibility both conceptually and technically, they will often start off as senior designers before being promoted to the role of design director.

Please Note: The world of creative careers is broad and ever-evolving. While our descriptions aim to capture the essence of a role, we appreciate that no two jobs will be the same. We’re always looking to grow, expand and add to these roles, so if you feel we are missing something please let us know!
