Our TeamWe're an independent agency that has been growing and evolving since our start 13 years ago. We believe that as a company, we are made better by the sum of our parts; our team members are intelligent, passionate and a little bit quirky.

We think it’s important that you have the ability to speak with the very people working on your project and encourage direct communication to ensure that nothing is lost in translation during the creation of your vision. So check out our bios and get to know Team Muse: we love what we do and can’t wait to share our enthusiasm with you.
