IdeaBank has been a leading ad agency in greater Nebraska since 1982. Our clientele is diverse, from healthcare to banking to manufacturing. Our team of designers, web developers, writers, digital specialists and marketing professionals are focused on designing ads and campaigns that work. We don’t exist to design for design’s sake. Pretty pictures are great for refrigerators but if they’re not good enough to sell refrigerators, we don’t want them.

Top candidates will be asked to design a full-page ad from provided creative brief. Your submission will be part of our overall interview process. We hope to find someone soon and want to hire by the end of January. If you’ve got skills, apply today!
