Art Director

Capital One is seeking a talented art director to join one of our Brand Creative teams. But not just any designer, one who has a passion for all things web. We want someone that loves crafting highly usable breakthrough and intuitive interfaces mixed with creative cleverness. Someone as passionate for users as they are for design. Someone who cares about the customer experience and will constantly strive to make it better.

You and a copywriter will partner to work on a variety of web based projects. You’ll be involved with everything from small product page changes up to creating, building and presenting new and unique experiences. You won’t have to spend your days coding, but we want someone familiar with that process. We want an architect, not a builder. You’ll collaborate with digital, strategy, and business partners along the way to build and refine your ideas and our products.

You’ll join an existing team, but this is very much a new role. You’ll have the opportunity to influence our processes, architecture, and approach. We’re looking for the right mix of customer obsession, technical skill, high standards and problem solving.

You should be:

  • A problem solver—conceptual thinking and strategic problem solving are key
  • Outstanding conceptual thinker who is able to translate ideas into compelling and clear visual executions
  • A team player who readily collaborates with all types of people
  • Additional skills that aren’t negotiable:
  • Proficiency using a Mac and Adobe CS6 suite (InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop)
  • Familiarity with other apps like Sketch and InVision, or the ability to quickly get up to speed on them
  • Familiarity with HTML5, CSS, UI design, responsive/adaptive design principles
  • Preferable experience designing and coding responsive emails and landing pages
  • You understand the importance of creative strategy, use it to create powerful work, and can clearly present it to others
  • A positive outlook and attitude
  • You consistently deliver quality work, on time

Basic Qualifications:           

  • Bachelor’s degree or Military experience.
  • At least 4 years of experience as a web designer.
  • At least 2 years of experience in UX/UI or wire framing.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • At least 1 year of experience with responsive design.


At this time, Capital One will not sponsor a new applicant for employment authorization for this position.
