Clever-ish Magazine

Clever-ish is a Magazine that celebrates all forms of creativity!

We feature candid interviews of millennial creatives, culture, arts, and inspirational pieces. All to help you navigate your creative curiosities and quintessential quarter-life crisis.


Our readers are individuals with curious minds who love to explore their creative passions.

They are millennials who are trying to embrace and share their creativity in a society that’s still not structured for that.

They are innovative thinkers who are daring and brave enough to challenge the status quo of what’s considered work and create a more colorful, yet riskier path for themselves.

They are millennials who despite maybe having a day job, still explore their creative passions and work twice as hard to share their gifts with the world.

They are trendsetters, innovators, artists, entrepreneurs, and game changers.

Clever-ish Magazine is for and about creativity

Hi there!

Jiji Majiri Ugboma

Thank you for visiting Clever-ish!

I’ve created Clever-ish Magazine because of my love for creativity and self-expression and it’s been a long time coming!

I was born in Nigeria and lived there for most of my life. Four years ago, I packed my bags and moved to the United States. During my time in the US, I went to business school and got my MBA, I also worked in research, non-profit, and online marketing all while nursing my desire to be a full-time writer.  My cross-continental experiences have definitely played a huge role in the person I am today. I’ve developed a sort of subtle third culture identity and growth in self-awareness that has fed into my desire to be creative.

I’ve had the idea to create an online magazine for many years but there has always been something in the way – Business School, working in corporate America. Well, no more excuses!

Clever-ish is not just a place for me to share my writing with you but also a place to share and celebrate other people’s creations, candid thoughts, and creative endeavors. 

I have a vision that’s probably too big for me to carry now but I’m taking it one day at a time. The gut behind my (potential) glory is perseverance and community.

As the Editor and Creative Director of  Clever-ish, I plan to stay away from underwhelming and dishonest content and bring you the most refreshing online experience to inspire you. This is my solemn pledge – one hand on chest, cup of coffee in other hand.

– Jiji Majiri Ugboma (Creative Director)
