Praise From Our Clients
“As a 130-year old archive, we weren’t quite sure where to start building our new website, and I’m so glad we found Cuberis. The entire process – from the initial proposal to design and prototyping to launch – couldn’t have been easier. It was invaluable to have Eric, Ray, and Chris guiding us through our redesign because they really understand the needs of museums and how to best showcase our unique collections and content, and most importantly for us, how to create a site that can be managed by a small staff. We were given ample training and personalized how-to videos to ensure we can manage and build upon our site, and Cuberis has continued to provide quick and efficient support as our staff gets comfortable with the new features. Within a few days of launching, we started to see an uptick in site traffic and are confident that with our beautiful new website, our audience will continue to grow.”
“Creating an online experience that speaks to the daunting topic of the Holocaust is not an easy lift, especially when the task is to develop a first-of-its-kind site that address a lesser-known aspect of the story of Jews who experienced Nazi genocide in the Soviet Union. The Cuberis team approached our project with a radical curiosity, remarkable sensitivity and empathy to the subject and witnesses whose stories we shared, and with a commitment to courageous storytelling. The Cuberis team were invaluable partners, listening closely to ideas, asking questions to push our thinking when needed, and ultimately helping produce a truly elegant and powerful online experience that will honor the legacy of the Survivors and their families for generations to come.”
“From initial planning and strategy, continuing through design and development, Cuberis provided guidance and solutions aligned with the mission of the Saint Louis Art Museum. Their experience with museum platforms combined with a thorough knowledge of WordPress is unique among agencies. Cuberis was the perfect partner for the Saint Louis Art Museum, creating a refined digital experience for our visitors and members.”
“Cuberis helped us design a welcoming and elegant website that speaks to visitors and is a pleasure to manage internally. Their project team was knowledgeable and very patient, helping us think beyond web design toward a strategic mindset that evolves our larger digital approach. Since launch, our site has averaged a third more visits and now we’re building it to further accommodate onsite tour experiences as well as collaborative storytelling projects with remote audiences. Both the process and the product exceeded our expectations.”
“Cuberis inspired us to think bigger than ever with our new website, and we are thrilled with the result! Our dynamic new site brings exciting features onto every page–videos, stories, art, audio postcards, photo galleries, pull quotes—showcasing our special content and replacing the old-fashioned separate pages for stories and images. It’s easier than ever to join and donate to our museum. We have robust new search functions for our calendar and news sections. Cuberis understands our unique needs as an art museum.”
“Working with Cuberis continues to be an excellent experience. We first engaged the Cuberis team to enhance our exhibition website in adherence to a tight deadline. The entire project was smooth, from our initial interactions through the site’s deployment. We then embarked on a site re-design and unification project, bringing together the Collection’s two separate websites under one umbrella. The team’s passion for and dedication to the project is evident in the final product, which is a site that is eye-catching and simultaneously user-friendly. In addition, the back-end of the site has been thoroughly thought through and allows for us to easily make updates. Perhaps of utmost importance is the open dialogue we have had with the Cuberis team, the members of which are communicative and accessible. We are continually impressed with the team’s passion and proficiency.”
“Cuberis is top notch when it comes to web design and development! Being a multi-faceted institution that offers a wide variety of programs and activities, Cuberis did a wonderful job of guiding us to identify key elements of our organization and creating a user-friendly site that quickly informs visitors about The North Carolina Arboretum and our many offerings. From concept to launch, the entire process was very well-thought out. The design team was great in pulling out the beauty of the Arboretum and showcasing it through our new site. Our robust calendar will be a great tool to let visitors know about all the many happenings at the Arboretum and their suggestion of using rich imagery will certainly have folks wanting to come out and see the property for themselves! We couldn’t have asked for a better process and end product.”
“Their attention to detail and responsiveness to our needs was excellent. They were extremely good listeners – which is critical in an agency relationship and not always easy to find. They took ownership in the project and provided a creative solution to our organization. Their experience with museum website design is definitely an asset and sets them apart from other agencies. They also worked incredibly well with third party vendors – eMuseum/Gallery Systems and Altru, plus our web hosts and IT company. We appreciate that they went the extra mile in coordinating with all the different external parties involved in the website.”
“Cuberis definitely stepped up to the challenge for our site re-design. They were committed to listening and responding to our audiences and our team from start to finish. We were lucky enough to get Cuberis on board to do a usability study prior to redesign which really helped them (and us) recognize and understand the needs of our current and future audiences. The systematic process they provide for each project provides the structure needed for clear communication and goal setting but with enough flexibility to let ideas flow and allow for creative solutions. Also they are really enthusiastic about new ideas which makes all the work that much more fun.”
“Working with Cuberis has been a truly amazing experience, from the initial fact-finding visit to the museum, to the mock-up presentations, and the actual building of our website and the training in its use. Everyone here at the museum is impressed by the team’s level of understanding of our needs and Cuberis’ willingness to make our ideas a reality within the dictates of our budget. Truly professional and exceptionally knowledgeable as they are, we look forward to a great future for our site as Cuberis now monitors and expands it to fit our growing needs.”
“Cuberis helped the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts staff sort through our website priorities and created easy-to-maintain, affordable solutions that are aesthetically compatible with our stellar American Art collection. Challenged with no internal IT staff, they produced a site we can maintain in-house with relative ease…. and when we need help, they are just an email or phone call away.”
