I am considering pursuing a career as a Creative Director, but I want to be sure exactly what this entails. From what I understand, CDs oversee the management of projects for company - from the initial idea, to the product design, to the advertisement, to the public launch party. I like this so far, however, as a CD do you still get to have your own input in each step.
Do you get to criticize the graphics and make suggestions? Do you ever get to do some hands on collaborative work on the product development (such as naming it or brainstorming the package design)?
Lastly, how do you go about becoming a CD? What if I have already completed undergrad with a non-artistic degree, but am looking into Art and Design Graduate Programs? Where do I go from here?

I work as an account executive for a minority daily newspaper in the US. Unlike other A/E in mainstream media, I can very less money. I want to set up relationships with big advertising agencies to expand my network, and eventually draw ads into my newspaper.
I tried so many advertising agencies, but all I had are voice mails and no responses except the front desk receptionist.
