Job Description:

AQUENT is seeking a mid-level Art Director who has strong print ad digital experience. If you are looking for an opportunity where you have the ability to shape strategy and creative then this could be a door-opening career opportunity for you! 

Why as a creative, well-rounded Art Director would you be interested in this role? You will get to work for a manager who gives you the autonomy to own your work. Being trusted is freeing, isn't it? In this role you will work autonomously and it will be up to YOU to raise your hand if you need assistance. No micro-managing here, in a cutting edge Fortune 30 company, there's no time for that!

This is a rare opportunity to not just take a "job" but to make a career for yourself. If you are sharp, committed and will ask questions - you will be successful.
