Creative Directors Testimonials
Creative directors are responsible for fostering positive relationships with our clients and acting as the creative backbone for all projects. You handle the ideation and planning of projects, but not their execution. The team that’ll bring their ideas to life is built by the creative directors themselves, handpicked from our exclusive vetted network of creatives from three levels: emerging, senior, and pro. This role allows you the clearly defined space to flourish in what you do best.
Designity has an efficiently streamlined process to hire and onboard new creative directors. In order to get vetted into our network, you’ll need to follow our unique application process. This will guide you to sharing your project management skills and talent with us. If accepted, you’ll be invited to complete our challenge project, which will help us evaluate your expertise even 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.
The ideal candidate is a hybrid between a visual designer and project manager with 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 often is also a must.
Our vetting process exists to ensure that you’re a part of a team built with integrity. This process begins with our application, where we filter through candidates based on their up-to-date portfolio and answers to a series of questions. This is used to first evaluate your creative skills and give you the chance to even elaborate on your portfolio and work history by answering questions on video. If chosen to proceed onto the next parts of the application, you’ll be invited to complete our creative director challenge. This challenge is in the form of a sample project, giving us the chance to experience your skills firsthand. Once completed and reviewed by our team, you’ll be contacted to onboard to becoming a creative director with Designity.
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.
Creative directors are responsible for managing each project from its briefs to its 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. Lastly, the most important responsibility of a creative director at Designity is maintaining relationships with clients. Creative directors are the only individuals conversing with clients and are responsible for listening, understanding, and communicating each step of the creative process to all involved.
Based on your availability and the number of clients you’re able to take on, you have the opportunity to make between $2,000 and $10,000 per month. Because of the ability to scale, you can easily calculate and build your income up to your standards.
Rather than paying our creative directors hourly or on a by-project basis, we pay a commission based on the monthly package value that our clients opt into. Each monthly subscription varies in value, ranging from $3,000 to $10,000 per month. Based on your client’s monthly package value, you’ll receive 30% of their total to manage emerging and senior creatives, and 25% to manage pro creatives.
Before assigning you clients, our account executives consult with them on the perfect monthly package based on their project needs. All clients who work with Desingity fill out an initial questionnaire that asks fundamental questions regarding their company, brand style, and project details. Once all expectations are set and the client is ready to begin, we’ll assign you the most compatible clients based on your industry knowledge, time zone, expertise, availability, etc. The client will now then have an opportunity to book your first kickoff call together, which serves as both an introduction and consultation over the project at hand. After the kickoff call, you’ll put together an applicable project brief and timeline to assign to qualified creatives of your choosing. At this point, you’ll be 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.
All creative directors join Designity on a 1099 basis, however, there is the possibility to join part or full time in the future. This is entirely based on each individual’s performance, availability, and the length of time working with us.
On average, creative directors work with 5-7 clients at most but can work comfortably up to 8. We’ve found that 5-7 is the sweet spot to managing a positive relationship and completing projects effectively.
The creatives you will manage come from all different backgrounds and have various years of experience in their industry. Emerging creatives usually have 1-3 years of experience, requiring more guidance and instruction, resulting in a slightly higher commission rate. Senior creatives have 3-6 years of experience and pro creatives have over 6 years of experience, requiring much less project management control from your end.
