Associate Creative Director

The only thing that matters is that you do. Callahan is looking for an ACD with a background in writing or art direction. Or both, ideally.

The specs? 6 to 10 years of agency experience. A great book and even better attitude. We’re an ego-free, up and coming shop where people like working together in real life. Not just in the brochure.

Our values of curiosity, courage, trust, generosity, respect, passion, quality and fun serve our clients. They also serve the collaboration of our 60+ employees, by letting their individuality shine.

And the feeling you get when that happens, is why you love what you do as much as we do.

We’re located in a 150-year-old grain warehouse in Lawrence, Kansas. Opportunities abound here, helping turn your career into a masterpiece of your own design. And, unlike other agencies, work/life balance isn’t just preached at Callahan, it’s practiced.
