We may be small, but we think big.

Our strength is delivering strategic creative solutions that have high impact. Our clients will tell you that Circa looks at marketing issues through the lens of the customer and honestly share the issues that stand in their way. We're prone to lively debate and creative solutions that break through hardened beliefs and internal ambiguity.

We don't specialize by industry, our strategic problem-solving ranges from the software industry to the wine industry, from regional banking to HP laser printers.

Clos du Bois

The Mission:
The audience for Clos du Bois is affluent women, 25-34 years old. We inherited an ad campaign that made the bottle the hero. We made the occasion the star, and created casual lifestyle scenarios that fit the seasons of the year.

The Message:
Circa communicated that Clos du Bois is your favorite wine for your favorite times.

We also leveraged the successful tagline “All the French you need to know,” and added a wink and wit to the ads, case shippers, and store promotions.

Mia Fit by Clarisonic, A Division of L'Oreal

The Mission:
Introduce a new version of Clarisonic to new and existing audiences without cannibalizing other products, by touting the device’s compact size.

The Method:
We used product photography to reference not only the small size, but the completely new look of the product. Headlines reference the places they’ll go with the smaller Mia Fit, while highlighting the product’s two new settings.

Microsoft developers are techzillas

The Mission:
Recruit new users to the Microsoft Virtual Academy by providing the world-wide regions new, motivating marketing assets.

The Method:
We followed our technologist audience’s lead to create two marketing versions challenging them to be the kings and queens of code and tech-hungry IT beasts. We developed original custom illustrations to drive creative assets that the global regions ate up.
