  • Explore

    Building a successful digital project starts with exploration. During this phase, we work to understand the client, project goals, and desired outcomes. Initial research and strategy serves as the foundation upon which successful projects are built.

  • Design

    We have a passion for user experience and a knowledge of great design. From concepting and sketching to implementing immersive digital experiences, we geek out on building engaging sites that are fun to use and easy on the eyes.

  • Build

    Whether its systems integration or custom software development, putting all of the pieces together correctly creates a stable and extendable platform. We aim to leverage standards and open-source software to build reusable and maintainable applications.

  • Share

    The IMA Lab is dedicated to sharing knowledge through writing, speaking, and teaching about what we do. By sharing resources, knowledge, and tools, the museum technology field is better equipped to rapidly develop and better serve the needs of museums.
