Who did what?

Working alongside an art director within the creative department, copywriters work with client briefs to conceive, develop and produce effective advertising campaigns.

The art director deals mainly with the visual images of the advertising campaign, while the copywriter provides the verbal or written ‘copy’. This may include creating slogans, catchphrases, messages and straplines for printed adverts and leaflets. They are also involved in writing text for web advertising, as well as scripts for radio jingles and TV commercials.

An art director usually works alongside a copywriter to form a ‘creative team’. Traditionally, the copywriter produces the words to go with the visuals created by the art director. Both will have an input into the visual and written content of the advertising campaign. The art director works on the campaign from the outset and manages details about the client, product, target audience and required advertising message, which helps to shape the advertising campaign.
