Emily Jones – Principal

Emily supports our partners and leads strategic thinking across client projects. Her experience spans retail, hospitality, travel and transport, financial services, charities and the public sector.

Before Circus, Emily worked for a number of design and branding consultancies and maintains an interest in the power of visual communication and good design.

Emily is also a translator and editor. She translates fiction, non-fiction and poetry from Chinese into English, having learnt Mandarin at the universities of Cambridge, Ningbo and Qingdao. And she is a founding trustee of the charity Paper Republic, which aims to get more people reading Chinese literature in translation. She is fascinated by the power of words to excite the imagination, drive change and bring people together.
