    Art Directors with 30k? For real? I mean, are you really an Art Director? Maybe at a small firm, but man that's not much at all.

      At some companies, particularly more traditional ad firms, designers are called "junior art directors." Its weird.

      The design school I went to us choose a concentration our senior year: graphic design or art direction. The kids who went the art direction route created an ad-focused portfolio. It was strange, though, to have kids fresh out of school labeling themselves as art directors on their resumes.

      For a lot of agency focused companies the postgrad junior AD really starts at 30-35k. It's crazy but usually with gaining experience you reach comfy salary levels fast.

      Definitely a traditional Ad agency thing. I know junior designers that work at agencies that label them Art Directors.
