Founded in 2004, circus started as a boutique advertising agency with a specialty in shopping centre marketing. Over the years, our strategic expertise has grown and today we are a fully integrated marketing communications firm servicing b2c and b2b clients.
We have deliberately sought out the best talent in strategic thinking, design, digital and social media. Whether we are developing a brand strategy or creating a marketing plan, our team delivers powerful ideas, outstanding design and a user experience that generates results.
Our clients include start-ups and national household names. We offer personal service and the agility to meet any deadline. We are collaborators. We collaborate with our clients and each other to create work that is meaningful and successful.
Our new head office, located in historic Georgetown, Ontario, reflects our values. We took a derelict two-storey building, added a third story and transformed it into a modern, warm and environmentally friendly workspace close to parks, libraries, quaint shops and restaurants. Our backyard is perfect for a game of Frisbee or a quiet retreat in the shade.

What's up with the unicycle?
With a name like circus all sorts of visuals come to mind. Most of them were far too obvious or just way too, well, circusy! We wanted an icon that captured our brand name as well as our brand essence. Something that reflected our commitment to outperform – like the unicycle. It’s uncomplicated but requires a great deal of talent, skill, courage and balance. It’s nimble and it’s fun. Just like circus.
Walking the walk
circus is dedicated to improving our sustainability business practices. We recycle and reuse. When renovating our offices we sought out environmentally friendly products, low emission lighting and recycled materials. Our new location offers public transit options, bike racks and the ability to use good old fashion people power to visit shops and restaurants.
We believe in giving back. We are active supporters of the local Food Bank and contribute to several nonprofit organizations on a regular basis.
Our work regularly earns recognition from national and international marketing and design competitions. We are always thrilled when we win but outperforming for our clients and seeing our clients outperform in turn is what truly drives us.
