Michael C. Gross on art directing

“I think one of my proudest achievements was that my relationship with artists was always really honest. I got them paid, I treated them well, revisions were minimal. They knew I was hiring ’em, they knew what they were in for and I knew. I placed them perfectly for what their job might be. So, as an art director, that’s your skill! That’s your thing.”
