The Creative Circle

Claud Williams’ company, The Creative Circle, supplies a range of creative services including photography, video production and graphic design.

The company has evolved over a number of years, growing from a one-man photography service to an exciting creative collective of freelance media artists.

When Claud’s previous venture – Starlight Imagery, launched while he was still a student – proved to be so popular he had more bookings than he could manage, he realised that he had to expand.

He found himself a business partner, Bola Awoniyi, to help manage the flourishing company and a studio – in Loughborough’s Church Gate Mews – to work from.

The pair has since been joined by two interns who manage the company’s HR and marketing as well as a growing number of talented freelance photographers and video artists who bring a wealth of talent to the company’s varied commissions.

Their client base is growing, with a range of really diverse projects, including Grammy-award winning US rappers and the stars of the University’s own Inspiring, Enterprising Graduates Campaign!
