We’re delighted to have senior designer Carisa Romans back at Circle. Carisa first joined us in 1998 (upon graduation from Red River College) and then worked at Circle as a designer for the next four years.
Following maternity leave in 2002 (with son Aidan, now seven), Carisa spent several years working with another ex-Circle designer, ‘Segun Olude, at Indigo Ink Studios. Daughter Lauryn (now four) brought about another employment change—since returning to work, Carisa has spent the past few years with Blacksheep Strategy, a Winnipeg-based brand development consultancy.
Carisa lives with husband Ryan (who works with Manitoba Hydro) in a lovely house they built on a rural acreage just south of Winnipeg. Carisa’s interests are broad-ranging, and besides her role as an active homemaker, include a long-time volunteer role with Manitoba Theatre Centre (well over a decade now), reading, and the crafting of exquisite cakes and cookies through Sugarcrumb Confections, a couture baking and catering venture she founded in 2007.
Welcome back, Carisa!
