A shared passion for amazing design is what attracts talented individuals to pursue careers working with in house creative teams. But heavy workloads, unrealistic deadlines, excessive rounds of client changes, inadequate respect for best practices of design, and other workplace demands can take their toll on the smooth operation of in-house creative teams and job satisfaction. Successful in house creative leaders are motivated to help team members develop a clear understanding of business goals and strategies, as well as tracking measurable outcomes that contribute to the return on investment for their organizations, as the key to making improvements and growing stronger as creative professionals.
Martin Schott (Director, Creative Services at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts), Ilana Greenberg (Creative Director at GDUSA/Graphic Design USA Magazine), and David Lesué (Creative Director at Workfront) shared their insights on the work of in-house creative teams as the featured speakers at the 2015 InSource Signature Event held at the SVA Theatre in New York City on November 18, 2015. These three presentations sparked a lively discussion about the opportunities and challenges of in-house creative teams among those who attended this evening event.
