VSA Partners is a design-driven branding and marketing company. VSA was founded as a design firm more than 35 years ago with the belief that design is not only a craft, but a tool for achieving business objectives. As design thinkers, we approach business challenges holistically and aim to break down silos between branding, digital, marketing and advertising.


An Art Director at VSA is charged with concepting and bringing to life creative and beautiful solutions to a range of client challenges. On one hand you’re a smart, insightful thinker and maker. On the other, a talented designer with an eye for detail and awareness of current design trends. This role is for someone who has already learned a lot but is also always curious to learn more. If you’re someone who loves an idea, geeks out on design and is always on board to help out where needed, then we really want to meet you.


VSA Partners is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive, equitable environment for all employees. All employment decisions are made based on qualifications, merit and business need.
