About This Class

Introduction to Creative Direction: Pitch Your “Big Idea”

Are you a designer, art director or copywriter who dreams of directing eye-catching creative campaigns, but don’t know how to get there? Creative organizations need leadership and vision, so if you’re ready to step up, this class is for you.

Join Nancy Herrmann, Creative Director at Stark Design, as she guides you through this introductory class. You’ll learn the tools to recognize and develop fundamental skills for becoming a Creative Director. In the time it takes to eat lunch at your desk, you’ll learn how to: write a creative brief; lead a team; project manage; generate creative concepts; edit and present your ideas.

While you don’t need specific skills in Photoshop, Illustrator or InDesign, this is an intermediate-level class. Students should have some experience with design, art direction or copywriting.
