Your Creative Director serves as your main point of contact, alleviating the need for you to reiterate your brand and goals to various creatives. They take charge of discussing your project objectives, crafting comprehensive project briefs, and outlining a detailed timeline that encompasses all necessary phases and deadlines. Above all, your designated Creative Director is responsible for handpicking the appropriate creative professional from our verified US-based network and overseeing them to ensure top-notch quality.

Designity is a creative community, not your traditional design firm, marketplace, or staffing agency. We have a unique, collaborative model that allows Creative Directors to collaborate with verified Creatives with different skill sets to get projects done. While our community is fully remote, we limit the community exclusive to the US market for both clients and Creatives. By doing this, we are able to deliver a great experience for our Creative community.

We don’t hold back, and we work to make sure that the Creative Community is fully aware of all of the successes and challenges. We are also Feedback Seekers - we take your feedback very seriously and turn it into actionable items. We use surveys, 1-on-1 meetings, and an open-door policy to make sure every member of the community feels that they have a voice.

Does Designity require a specific process to complete projects?

We have managed processes in place from project brief creator to timeline creation tools, to project delivery system to make the collaboration easier for you.

What are the general responsibilities of a Creative Director?

Creative Directors are responsible for managing each project from briefs to completion. This includes establishing and maintaining timelines, budgets, files, project briefs, and workflows. While Creative Directors do not complete any of the work themselves, they’re responsible for guiding Creatives to complete it and ensure five-star quality. This is done by mentoring and providing sufficient support and inspiration to execute the vision. Additionally, the most important responsibility of a Creative Director at Designity is maintaining relationships with clients. Creative Directors are the primary point of contact with clients and are responsible for listening, understanding, and communicating each step of the creative process to all involved. Lastly, you also get to build your own team from our US Based vetted community of Creatives, and they bring your ideas to life. When building their team, Creative Directors may select from our exclusive vetted network of Creatives at four career levels: Aspiring, Emerging, Senior, and Pro.

How do I become a Creative Director?

We don’t judge you based on your résumé and your portfolio. Designity has an efficiently streamlined process to hire and onboard new Creative Directors. In order to join the community, you’ll need to follow our interactive vetting process. This will guide you to share your skill sets and talent with us. If accepted, you’ll be invited to complete a quick challenge project, which will help us evaluate your expertise further. This entire process normally takes about 2–3 weeks due to careful screening. Once passed, we’ll prepare you in our onboarding series to start working with clients.

Who would be the ideal Creative Director?

The ideal candidate is a hybrid between a visual designer and project manager who has a passion for guiding others. As a Creative Director at Designity, you’ll need to be familiar with various types of design and marketing categories and their processes. This means you’ll need to be specialized in at least three areas of expertise so that we are able to match you with clients effectively. With that being said, comfortability in shifting gears is often necessary, and we also provide opportunities to learn new skills and techniques as you grow.

How do unlimited project requests and revisions work for Creative Directors?

Based on our agreement with clients, each understands they can only expect our Creative Directors to work on one project at a time within their plan. However, if clients want to work on multiple projects simultaneously, they have the option to purchase add-ons to add more Creatives to your team. You will be compensated for each additional Creative you manage if the number exceeds the capacity of the client’s plan. As for revisions, there’s no limit on the number of requests made by clients. Clients are entitled to this benefit as long as they’re active clients with Designity.

How much can I make as a Creative Director with Designity?

You get to determine your own compensation at Designity. It’s all based on your level in the Designity Creative Community, quality of work, availability, and the number of clients you’re able to take on. Creative Designers average between $85,000 – $95,000 per year when working full time with Designity, but you have the freedom to scale your work and can build your income to fit your lifestyle. All members of the Designity Creative Community have the flexibility to determine their own workload and can scale up and down in the way that works best for them.

What is the process of working with clients?

Once our sales team qualifies the clients, they sign up and go through our onboarding process to provide you with their company info, brand style, and project details. Based on that, our matchmaking team will assign the right Creative Director to the client based on your industry knowledge, time zone, expertise, availability, etc. After the matchmaking the client schedules their first kickoff calls to discuss the details and get started. After the kickoff call, you’ll put together a project brief and timeline and share the opportunity with our vetted Creative Community. You have the ability to select and assign the Creatives based on their expertise and your knowledge of their skills and productivity. You then begin working with the Creative(s) to complete projects according to your timeline. Upon completion, you’re responsible for presenting the work to the client and collecting their feedback.

What is our employment relationship?

All Creative Directors join Designity on a 1099 basis, however, there is the possibility to become a full-time W-2 employee after 45 days of successful collaboration. This is entirely based on each individual’s desire to be involved in the Designity Creative Community, performance, availability, and the length of time working with us. You get to build your own experience with the Designity Community. Creative Directors have the opportunity to work full-time, part-time, gig-basis, etc. You can scale up your work during certain times of the year, and scale back down when the need calls for it. Once you’re a member of Designity, the sky's the limit!
