Digital is one of the most exciting, dynamic ingredients to any brand or campaign. Yet the translation of traditional art direction to digital can be tricky. It has its own sensitivities, language, logic and tools which are all evolving at a rapid rate. From the outside it can seem intimidating. From the inside you can become stuck. This workshop demystifies, exposes the hidden dimensions of digital art direction and brings a new level to your existing skills.
