These safety cards will help art directors and copywriters get along

Working as part of a creative team can be great fun. You get to work on a variety of interesting projects and watch them come to life. You'll also get to meet lots of other creative people and bounce ideas off each other. But just like any other job, the work isn't always plain sailing.

To help art directors (opens in new tab) and copywriters get along, two creatives in the know have channelled their life experience into these witty safety cards.

Made by New York-based copywriter Stephanie Vicari (opens in new tab) and art director Caitlin Hickey (opens in new tab), these cue cards will help studios to avoid any awkward situations. From being sure to give art directors decent images to work with, to not being condescending to copywriters, these safety cards will have both departments covered.
