Cuberis is a boutique, museum-focused, front-end website and content strategy firm.

Boutique

You work directly with principal talent as your project moves through each phase of strategy, design, and development.

CUBERIS IS A BOUTIQUE FIRM. That means you interact directly with principal talent. Strategy begins with Nick Faber, our Director of Content Strategy. Sean O’Shea leads information architecture (IA) and user experience (UX). As we transition into visual design, our Creative Director Ray Parrish takes over. Robert Povelones, Lead Developer, works with you as he brings the site to life. Once your site goes live Andy Marino oversees support and maintenance.

Our boutique approach is carefully coordinated with robust systems and procedures, as well proactive communication. To ensure smooth and successful projects. Andrea Vaughan, our Project Coordinator, is a consistent point of contact throughout projects to confirm schedules, dates, meetings, and to direct inquires to the right resources both during and after project completion.

Front-End

Our front-end focus avoids the long-term costs and liabilities of custom code.

CUBERIS IS A FRONT-END WEB DESIGN FIRM. We employ best-in-class, vetted, supported, and tested technologies—rather than treating our projects as opportunities for technical experimentation. We will not use our projects, or our clients’ budgets, as opportunities to play with gadgets, or invent uni-task systems, when there are so many excellent toolsets available today.

As a front-end firm, we avoid custom code whenever possible. Not only because of the high cost of custom code, but because museums rarely plan for the long-term costs of ownership of maintaining custom code. While we avoid custom code, we do build highly customized sites. Our commitment to front-end design and development takes discipline, and careful research, but we want to maintain our status as trusted advisers to our clients, and always honor and respect their limited resources.

Content Strategy

Design and content management exist for content. So it only makes sense to start your project with a robust content strategy.

CUBERIS DESIGNS FOR CONTENT. This is not a unique claim. In fact it is the basis for all good design. Form follows function. But so often in web design and development layouts are crafted and systems are built on very general content parameters. Your museum’s website can be so much more powerful when it’s built for and upon a fully articulated, cross-department, and long-range content strategy.

That’s why Cuberis offers museum content strategy services for any and all museums (whether or not we’re engaged to build a website). Especially since strategic content planning often needs to precede a museum’s final website redesign by months, if not a full year, before engaging in the full design and development process.
