The relationship between account management and creative is a complicated and ever-changing one. A common theme in the advertising literature is that account and creative teams sometimes struggle with intra-agency communication. This article looks at why communication is still an issue today and what knowledge modern account and creative teams need to know about the others’ role in the agency to close the long-standing communication gap. We asked both account managers and art and creative directors (creatives) what they wished the other understood about their roles within the agency. From their answers, we identify pedagogical suggestions for advertising professors as they work to better prepare students for careers in the industry.
