A typical day at work would consist of a quick creative brief with the art directors and studio manager. I would then check my Outlook for assignments from the production artists and get started on editing images or I will be clipping paths for our web/print images. On occasion the in-house photographer will ask me to help him photograph some of the e-commerce items in order to meet his deadline. Also, the studio manager will give me a min of two videos which would have a 24 hrs or less turnaround (mostly to be posted of company's in-house or social media) to be cut and formatted. My coworkers are amazing and I have created a kinship bond. The hardest part of the job is time management of which projects are priority even though I have met all deadlines to date. The other difficult thing is that there are too many art directors which can make it confusing on specific instructions when everyone is telling you something different. Unfortunately, Golfsmith has not developed a simpler method to correct this issue. The most enjoyable part of the job is the creativity which is allowed by all employees to voice and be heard. We are all allowed to take an idea and lead the project.
