The Creative Circus, founded in Atlanta, Georgia in 1995 by Norm Grey, Rob Lawton, Carol Vick, Mike Jones-Kelley, Betty Gammage and Reva Ezell is an accredited, portfolio-building educational program for Creative Advertising (Copywriting and Art Direction), Interactive Development, Design and Photography. Two founding members of The Circus, Rob Lawton and Norm Grey are two of the three Educators in The One Club’s Advertising Educators Hall of Fame.
