THE JOB / Associate Creative Director - Art/Experiential

CREATIVE / Responsible for generating bold, innovative ideas (LIKE THESE) and producing design, technology and content for our clients’ marketing programs.

** Our headquarters is located in Stamford, CT but the location of this position can be flexible with a preference for working in one of our office locations - Stamford, CT, New York, NY, Charlotte, NC, Atlanta, GA, or Los Angeles, CA. We will also consider a remote-based working arrangement for qualified candidates.**

Okay, so we’ve all seen and heard the ridiculousness --

“We’re looking for idea ninjas, Photoshop rockstars, creative gurus, or [worst of the bunch] idea evangelists.”

We don’t want any of that!

What we DO want is someone who’s done some amazing work in the experiential space. A conceptual art director who can come up with an engaging theme, and then bring it to life both via 3D rendering/animation, as well as IRL, as the kids like to say.

As we continue to grow, we’re looking to add to our creative department with a person who’s got strong conceptual chops, and hands-dirty experience bringing interesting, engaging activations and experiences to life. Better yet, you’ll do it for brands like Budweiser, Delta Air Lines, BMW, Bank of America, PlayStation, and Home Depot.

In addition to calling yourself a fan and/or having the drive and curiosity to understand the world of sports and entertainment, you’ll also need strong skills in 3D design, Photoshop, and Illustrator. More importantly, you’ll have experience, and relationships with vendors on how to actually “make” those things and implement/build them into world-class activations that consumers and fans engage with and enjoy.


Where others see complexity, we see possibility.

Octagon is the global sports, entertainment, and experiential marketing arm of the Interpublic Group.

But if that classification doesn’t do it for you, and it shouldn’t, let’s take it a step further.

We are what we believe. And we believe that while the world of sports and entertainment is full of opportunities and possibilities, sometimes the amount of choice can seem a little overwhelming. Even daunting.

That’s where we come into play!

At Octagon, we inspire brands, talent, and our people to see the world for all its potential. We then help break down the complexity and push forward so you can make your next right move.


  • 5-8 years of experience in both digital and experiential agencies
  • You have a “roll up your sleeves” mentality -- as we expect you to not only conceptualize, but help bring ideas to life
  • You have experience pitching and wowing clients with slick art direction and design
