BEFORE digital asset management: It’s 10:00 a.m. and Steve, the lead art director for your biggest account, is on vacation — and unreachable. Your client calls and asks for the hero shot from the fall promo. So the backup art director says “um, sure” and then frantically starts looking for images on your servers. He can’t find it anywhere, so he asks the creative team who worked on the fall promo, and someone says “it was Steve, but he’s out of town until next week.” In the meantime, the client has called back twice saying he needs the hero shot today.
