Circa is on a mission to make creative count.


Co-founded in 2015—two designers in a spare closet—we know what it means to start small and grow a business, and we scale our services to meet clients where they are (even if it’s in a closet).

 “Circa has been our dream in the making. It’s allowed us to focus on and do more of what matters—doing work we love with a team that keeps us inspired, spending time with our families, and helping clients we can know and watch grow.”

Our Values


Intentional Design

Great design should always be guided by purpose. We firmly believe that excellent, strategic design is achievable at any scale, and we bring focused solutions to every project, regardless of size of scope.


Creative Curiosity

We keep our work fresh and our jobs fun by learning new ways to do things, challenging each other, and looking for those crazy ideas that turn out to be brilliant.


Collaborative Process

Teamwork grows good ideas into great ones. Our culture of collaboration includes our clients, whose insights and ideas help ensure that every step of the process is a step in the right direction.


Effective Flexibility

We’re flexible with our clients and our employees, so we can do our best work and be our best selves. That means adapting processes and services, taking initiative, and never missing a deadline.

Our Team

We are a crew of dedicated creatives—designers, developers, copywriters and strategists—with office space in four states and a unique fellowship program graduating 30 design professionals (and counting) into the creative workforce.
