We are an

agency for brands

Who we are.

We are an independent, female-owned agency based in Los Angeles. Since 2005,
we have shown up for brands in a clever way; infusing them with purpose and inspiring creative possibility.

We don’t have a type – not a client type,
not an industry type, and not a project type – it just doesn’t work for us. Working with lots of different people to solve different challenges everyday is what makes us great at what we do.

It’s one of our superpowers. But not our only one.

What we do.

Our purposefully essentialized (and fun!) process gets to the heart of what your brand needs, while keeping your team engaged every step of the way.

How We Work

We’re unapologetically nice.

Nice unlocks client relationships and allows us to go deeper, farther, and faster, together. It unlocks vendor relationships we can call on that others don’t have. It attracts top talent, keeps them happy, and makes them willing to go the extra mile. It makes us who we are. It’s another superpower.

How We Do It


Clever raises the agency bar to stratospheric heights on both creative output and client service. Despite starting with a 'C,' Clever Creative retains the first spot in my Rolodex.
