We need to add a highly conceptual Digital ACD Team (Digital Art Director & Digital Copywriter) to our 75 person creative team. The Associate Creative Directors are accountable for the overall quality of the concept and are responsible for assisting the Creative Director in leading the creative team to consistently deliver a compelling customer experience.

This team will set a strong conceptual and strategic direction for the project team based on the business need of our financial services client. We’re looking for a dynamic duo with proven ability to present and sell great conceptual ideas to the clients.

You’ll be managing 5+ direct reports on a financial services account. The work is primarily digital, but there will be some cross-channel and new biz creative opportunities. The ideal team will have proven expertise in the digital space, but that also have an integrated approach to their creative thinking. We do a lot of social media & want a team that knows how to build a conversation between active consumers and the brand.
