The Associate Creative Director role is often one of the most challenging and versatile roles in an agency. If you embrace this challenge, and can bring an innovative approach, Javelin has a spot for you.

We’re looking for an ACD with an art/design background who is equal parts multifaceted and brilliant. You can embrace and build on strategy to create smart, beautiful creative. You have one hell of a design eye and use it to elevate not just your work, but the work of other Art Directors and Designers. Your passion for incredible design is only matched by your love and ability to tell compelling stories no matter the platform.

You’ll partner with planning, client engagement, and project management to create great work that exceeds expectations, meets deadlines, and respects budgets.

In other words, you’ll be in the middle of everything. Sound good? Cool. Here’s a bit more. 

What you'll do:

  • Handle multiple projects in various forms of completion
  • Oversee design across a multitude of channels
  • Develop and deliver strategically sound creative every time
  • Continue to push the creative and conceptual limits in innovative ways
  • Contribute to new business pitches and big agency initiatives

What you're like:

  • Empathetic
  • Conceptual
  • Extremely detail-oriented
  • A great presenter, and better mentor
  • Pushed by a desire to do award-winning work 

What you've got:

  • Art Direction or Design background background with 5+ years of experience in an advertising, digital, or design agency.
  • Integrated, cross-channel campaign experience 
  • Some management experience and a desire to lead
  • A temperament that is both driven yet understanding; a team player who knows nothing can be truly accomplished without the support, knowledge and talent of others 
  • Willingness to travel as needed 

Wondering if you'll fit here? At Javelin we are:

  • Curious: We want to know why. We ask questions. We look beyond the surface.
  • Scrappy: We get our hands dirty. We prefer progress over perfection. Process never stands in the way of productivity.
  • Creative: We express ourselves. We celebrate ideas. We look for new ways.
  • Provocative: We challenge conventional wisdom. We reject the status quo. We embrace healthy tension.
  • One: Ride or die. We're in this together.
