Creative directors and marketing trends:
Here I will break down four different ways that a creative director can help you when planning your photoshoots and staying on top of the current marketing trends.
- A creative director will advise on types of content that are working (and what’s not) allowing you to get the best photos for the content you need
- A creative director will advise on styling and trends that will get your images noticed
- A creative director will help with understanding and developing awareness around the needed requirements when marketing, running ads and what formats are needed for various platforms ensuring the images you need are styled and sized correctly
- A creative director will ask about certain details like orientations needed, space for text or whether it is a banner or website styled image that needs to fill the space. if it’s a wholesaler or for something like Etsy or Shopify where you can get away with styled images for products over catalog images. This helps to ensure you are getting exactly what you need once the photoshoot is over.
