About Us

Muse by Clio is the premier news site for coverage of the best in creativity in advertising and beyond.

Every day, through our website and newsletter, we analyze the most interesting, entertaining and innovative creative efforts in brand marketing, fashion, film and TV, gaming, healthcare, music, sports and more. We feature long-form Q&As with dynamic makers in the creative arts. And we publish essays from working creatives on everything from their personal creative inspirations to the broader challenges facing the industry to work/life balance and the creativity of workspaces.

We aim to be a fun, smart, colorful home for creative ideas and executions—an engaging and inspiring destination for creatives, by creatives.

Muse is editorially independent from the Clio Awards—our coverage is not connected in any way to our parent company's award programs. Yet we share Clio's DNA and mission to celebrate work that is thought provoking and game changing across the industries we cover.
