Emily Little has the unique role at Circa, holding down the fort for our operations in New York City as a Creative Director. Circa Creative Studios began in Nashville back in 2015 and Emily joined that studio about a year later as one of our earliest hires. Over the years, she was promoted time and again (more on that later) until a bigger change came in 2020. She moved away from Tennessee and set up new digs in Brooklyn — which led to the birth of our New York studio. Working with Emily remotely was going to be a big transition, but it was one that the rest of the world was about to embrace when COVID-19 hit in March of that year.
A graduate of Western Kentucky University with a BFA in Graphic Design, she joined the newly-formed Circa very soon after earning her degree. She may hold the record for the most titles one of our employees has held, starting as a Design Assistant. She began to focus on branding as her expertise and became a Brand Designer, then Senior Brand Designer. As she started launching more websites, she was promoted to Senior Digital Designer before reaching Art Director and now Creative Director status.
Long story short, from design solutions to branding and website launches, Emily does it all. She works closely with our clients to lead them through any size of project with a great deal of consideration and ingenuity.
Outside of Circa, she has been instrumental to community projects like Nashville Design Week and Ladies Wine & Design which celebrate diversity, representation, and community. She also plays soccer and aspires to be a wine connoisseur.
