The Creative Circus mission is to graduate the best-prepared, most avidly sought-after creatives in the marketing communications industry. With all due respect to your Magna cum something status, the fact is, it won’t get you hired in the top creative departments. Portfolios do. Really good ones. Sure, there’s always an exception. That kid whose father knows someone. The talented freak of nature. But for everyone else, The Creative Circus is a great portfolio school to start and an even better place to finish. Because when you do, you’ll be well prepared to get hired at the best agencies in the world, and more importantly excel there.
Conveniently located in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia our building is a colorful converted warehouse. Our four dedicated computer labs each have high definition projection systems. Our high-speed network is wireless for access by student laptops and mobile devices. We have two high-capacity laser printers and scanners (color and black/white). Our large theater features audio visual capability for the latest in multi-media presentations. Our photography studios include a large daylight studio and a large dark studio with a cyclorama wall with green screen capability. We are a dog friendly environment. The school has an outdoor deck and picnic area. We have a small library well stocked with industry publications. In addition to the two gallery exhibit areas, most of the wall space in the school is used to showcase student work.
faculty & staff
The faculty and staff of The Creative Circus are at the school for the same reasons our students are: the thrill of creating great advertising, design, copywriting, photography and interactive user experiences. Circus instructors are working professionals who make themselves available to teach in order to share their experience and professionalism with the next generation.
Circus students have the advantage of working with teachers who earn their living actually doing what they are teaching. Many staff members, like the instructors, have enjoyed successful careers in advertising, development, design, illustration and photography. Others have strong ties to education and school administration. Together, they bring an integrated team dedicated towards student success.
The Creative Circus graduates work at some of the best agencies in the world. Our Career Services department maintains important industry contacts, and helps to keep our illustrious alumni connected. These are just some of the reasons our reputation in creative industries is unparalleled.
