Being a graphic designer is great. But many designers have aspirations of going even further in their creative careers, and for some that means becoming a creative director one day. In this episode, the gang breaks down how to be a creative director; what kind of personality is most attracted to the role, what is often required of the job, and more importantly, what do you need to be doing right now in order to get there someday?
We have Sam Cox back with us (a bona fide creative director himself) to offer his insights and personal experience on the subject. We learn how he got to where he is today, and what he likes and dislikes about his role as a CD.
Also, we take on a few more listener questions about how to start in the wonderful world of WordPress web design (alliteration, anyone?) and whether you should follow your creative carer passions at the risk of losing a steady payday.
