Clever-ish is a Magazine that celebrates all forms of creativity!
We feature candid interviews of millennial creatives, inspirational articles on creativity, entrepreneurship, self-care, personal growth, career advice and more. 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, I’m Jiji, and I’m the Creative Director of Clever-ish! I’ve started 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. Many 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. A few years ago, I packed up again and moved to Madrid where I now pursue my dream as a writer and creative. 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.
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. Find me on Instagram a @Jiji129 2018
My name is Cassidy Armbruster and I am a content marketer and freelance writer that has escaped the Wisconsin cold to live as an expat in Madrid, Spain. I am a storyteller that is open to ambiguity and always up for an adventure. I am interested in all things global- from language to literature! In my free time, I am happiest going for a long run or playing a game of soccer. As I am a digital native, you can find me active on Instagram and Linkedin.
Hi I’m Shaune! I’m a writer living and teaching English in Madrid. I’m also a wannabe-yogi, Spanish student, ocean lover, and dog enthusiast. I’m interested in the idea of living as many different lives as possible, through literature, writing, and frequent change. Past lives so far include working as a museum curator, weddings writer, and market research analyst. I try to write about ideas that require thoughtful consideration and to challenge seemingly simple premises that might be misunderstood. I love fiction because I think not-real stories give us space to explore very real parts of our shared experiences. I’m passionate about education, I hate to be asked what kind of music I listen to, and my celebrity crush is Barack Obama. I don’t believe in astrology or ghosts, but I do believe in aliens, and maybe parallel universes. I studied professional writing and creative writing at Carnegie Mellon University, and I now write for Clever-ish along with occasional freelance projects. You can reach me at [email protected].
