American Advertising Federation of Des Moines

Associate Creative Director

Company: Red Dot Advertising + Design

Full time
Posted: 05/02/2022
Deadline: 07/15/2022
West Des Moines, IA


You’ve found us. More accurately, you’ve found an opportunity. We’re looking for an ACD who can make a significant impact on our company now and in the future. This new role has great growth potential, both professionally and financially. You’ll be immersed in a culture that places a high value on doing amazing work that delivers.

At Red Dot, our client partners are varied and offer boundless creative opportunities — from renewable energy to transportation logistics to whatever you make of the opportunity. Plus, a few famous local restaurants. You’ll have the opportunity to build brands from scratch and/or refresh global brands, too. Bring your passion, design chops, and all your knowledge. But leave the ego at the door (or at least most of it).

Our new ACD will have a strong (like The Rock strong) background in design and art direction, and a solid (again, like The Rock) background in creating dense brand experiences. It’s also great if you appreciate copy and are stellar at concepting. And of course, you can execute it all, start to finish. Too much? Not for you. We develop brand strategies and platforms that will inspire your best work. Along with 10 team members that you’ll love to work with and love hanging out with on our rooftop patio. If you’re ready for the next step, we’re ready to meet you.
