I understand the buyer’s role as that of creative hub for the agency; they are the people who buy in the creative services that an art director needs to realize the vision for a campaign, including illustration. Art buyers should know what is going on out in the wider creative community, and what is available when art directors ask for a particular style or feel of work.
