I would ask in what capacity one performs these various tasks. In the absence of that information, I like the word "Creator."

Whichever one gets that person the most money for all their skills.

If they design, compose, photograph and video or a combination of those on one project then I would call them a multimedia producer.

Otherwise, they are a designer or photographer, or composer, or videographer if they do those functions only on a project.

I agree with eatcake: Multimedia Producer is the best umbrella term.

Thirding Multimedia Producer - although I might title it "Multimedia Producer / Creator", then spell out the characteristics if there's room.

Visual and auditory artist. Or a jack of visual trades. But yeah, a Multimedia Producer/Creator sounds best.

"Multimedia Producer" sounds good. Or the more generic "Creative Specialist."

I've said Multimedia Artist. Or if you work with mostly electronic artistry, a Digital Artist. I kinda like Art Director more than Multimedia Producer though. Multimedia Director? God, choosing a title is an art in itself...

Multimedia Producer or Multimedia Designer, depending on the image you want to portray.

Oh, seconding "Creative Specialist", good one joshrholloway :)

It probably depends on what industry we're talking about, and the level of seniority of the person in question, but Creative Director sounds about right. Or Associate Creative Director for someone who's less senior. Or Executive Creative Director for someone who's more senior.

This has the added advantage of being an actual title used in actual business, and doesn't sound made-up the way some of the suggestions above do.
