Happy Labor Day Weekend!

By | Muse News | No Comments

As we enter into this holiday weekend, which marks the unofficial end of summer, let’s take a minute to realize what this weekend celebrates…us. This weekend is all about the American Worker, and we’ve all worked hard. We all deserve to relax and enjoy the weekend. So whatever your pleasure (the beach, camping in the middle of nowhere, hitting the boardwalk, visiting a museum, or chilling out in the backyard with a few friends), you do you.  It’s your weekend!

From Mo’s Desk: For Book Lovers Everywhere

By | From Mo's Desk, Muse News | No Comments

I am an unapologetic book lover.  There are so many times that I have picked up a good book and gotten completely swept away by it.  I have many a night said to myself, “Just one more chapter,” and been up until 1 or 2 in the morning. There are some books that I’ve loved so much that I read them more than once.  Rereading them is like greeting a group of old friends as you get swept up in their stories once again. Two of my personal favorites are the Belgariad and Mallorean series from David Eddings.  They were…

Ridiculous Retro Advertising

By | Art, Branding, Muse News | No Comments

As I sit here writing my third draft of this blog post, I feel I must excuse myself. This is the first blog post that I’ve ever written, and I’m struggling with the level of formality required. My first draft was far too factual (and boring, as a result), and the second? Less so, but still very questionable. Here’s hoping this one pans out. For my first post, I decided to focus on something I love doing — extensive research. Recently, I’ve been quite interested in retro advertising, so I decided to dive more into that subject for this post….

Muse Welcomes Alex Newman!

By | Muse News | No Comments

Muse welcomes Alex Newman, an “almost-intern” last year, who unfortunately ended up being unable to work with Muse due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, her desire to contribute to the team was not dampened, and luckily, she was able to find time to try again this year. She is excited to be able to learn more from Muse in the fields of web development, social media content creation, and graphic design.   In her free time, Alex loves to read a good book (with a cat on her lap), play Scrabble, hike, and snowboard. She attends the University of Michigan…

Freedom is a beautiful thing.  It is truly something to celebrate.  This weekend, we have an opportunity to express our gratitude for all the freedoms we enjoy. The holiday gives us many ways to celebrate.  Barbecues, fireworks, parades, adult beverages, concerts, river cruises and even food truck festivals…the list goes on. So this weekend, enjoy some good food, good music, some great adult beverages (responsibly, of course) and head out on a river cruise to enjoy some fireworks and remember how lucky we all are to have such a privilege.

Pride for All

By | Muse News | No Comments

As Pride Month comes to a close, we should all remember that everyone, no matter who they are, should have the same rights under the law.  No one should be discriminated against because of who they are as an individual.  Equally so, no one should be discriminated against for who they love. “We should keep calm in the face of difference and live our lives in a state of inclusion and wonder at the diversity of humanity.” ~George Takei Whether you are a member of the LGBTQ+ community or a supporter, we should all be willing to fight for what…

In Honor of Dads…

By | Muse News | No Comments

As we prepare to honor the influence and bond we share with our fathers, we thought we’d share a few facts that you might not know about the day. In one form or another, Father’s Day has been celebrated since the Middle Ages. It is observed in over 100 countries worldwide, although dates of celebration vary from country to country. The first Father’s Day celebration officially took place in a West Virginia church. In 1910, Sonora Smart Dodd felt there should be a holiday that mimicked Mother’s Day to honor her single father and held her celebration on June 19th….
