Associate, Art Director — Brand Creative - Organic Social Team

Capital One Brand Creative is looking for an Art Director to bring our brand to life across different audiences, products, channels and types of communication.

Yep, we’re a Fortune 100 finance company—credit cards, banking products & services, and best-in-class technology. But our brand is personable, fun and engaging as we aim to help customers feel at ease on their financial journey.

If you’re a champion of strategic ideas with exceptional design chops and passion for customer-focused marketing, we’d love to hear from you.


  • Design. No surprise there, right?

  • Design creative for a range of print and digital channels, including email, web, direct mail, display, and social media.

  • Brainstorm big concepts one day and tackle detail-oriented projects the next.

  • Collaborate with a lot of smart people.

  • Work with your team—copywriters, creative directors, brand and marketing strategists.

  • Work with your partners—internal marketing and line-of-business.

  • Create marketing that cuts through the noise.

  • Use strategy to inform your creative decisions.

  • Understand the importance of integrated thinking across channels, products and audiences, while staying true to the brand.

  • Learn from consumer insights and let them influence your work.

  • Be willing to push the process and mindsets of others to create great customer experiences and strengthen our brand.

  • Get stuff done. On time. Every time.

  • Manage multiple deadlines on numerous projects happening at the same time.

  • Deliver error-free work, using best practices with keen attention to detail.

  • Listen to and incorporate feedback.

  • Determine when to use existing solutions or start from scratch, so you can invest your time where it matters.

  • Understand the goals of a project, take direction well, and ask questions when you need clarity.

  • Present your work in a compelling way to create support across different audiences.



  • Your curiosity is endless. There’s always something else to learn.

  • You’re flexible and not afraid of change—in fact, you welcome the challenge.

  • You share your point of view but seek out what might be missing and listen.

  • You have big ideas and know the best ones are driven by proof, persistence and patience.

  • You’re a storyteller. You simplify the complex and compel your audience to act.

  • You know how to enjoy yourself. While fun isn’t mandatory, it certainly seems to follow you.

  • You care—about the work, your team and the customers you serve.
