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 with at least 7+ 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...when that starts up again...


Wondering what we're like? At, KERN we are:

  • Kind: We understand that our clients and our employees all have unique experiences that have shaped them. Seeking ideas from every corner of the agency allows our people to be comfortable being themselves every day.
  • Smart: We know that the best and brightest thinking is what elevates our work. When our teams come together, we amplify individual strengths to deliver innovative solutions for our clients, and pivot if we’re off-strategy
  • Creative: We believe in pushing boundaries, reimagining the customer experience through insightful work, and measuring success with precision analytics. We think bigger and we deliver more.
