Our Story

Circus Media was born when founder Carly Luke fell happily yet quite unexpectedly pregnant with her first child - something that typically stalls a career rather than launches it.

The curve ball forced Carly to question how she wanted to live her life and, with the encouragement of both her family and her colleagues, she set about starting her own consultancy.

Carly foresaw that the media landscape was changing dramatically alongside the rise of social media and deliberately set up Circus Media as what she calls a ‘non-traditional’ PR agency with an integrated approach, also offering organic and paid social media management, content creation, influencer marketing, design and small-scale events.
She went from a solo operation and 8-months pregnant on her laptop at her kitchen table, to a large portfolio of clients and a partnership with her younger sister Emily, who serves as Client Services Director.

Together the duo have become a dynamic force of business - Carly, the big storyteller with the magnetic personality and gung-ho approach couples perfectly with Emily’s more strategic and process-driven way of operating, reinforced by the natural ability of both to establish and nurture genuine relationships with clients that transcend business or a transaction.

An agency that is focused firmly on the why rather than the what in a world where it is no longer enough to simply ‘make great work’.

We are a fully integrated brand, marketing and communications agency specialising in the bringing together of best in class experts to deliver elevated, innovative and strategic game changing solutions.
