We built a next-generation content management system for universities, museums, and cultural institutions.

We help organizations engage and grow their audiences, by creating custom software that inspires confidence.  

Citywide engagement.

The Neoteric CMS powers the Terra Foundation for American Art’s Art Design Chicago website. A year-long initiative starting 2018, the site handles organizations, programs, and—coming this fall—hundreds of events across Chicago, including exhibitions, public programming, lectures, and more.

Foster connections.

EXPO CHICAGO, the International Exposition of Contemporary & Modern Art, hosts leading international exhibitors, non-profit institutions, museums, and art collectors each fall in Chicago. The Neoteric CMS powers the website. It delivers programming information, events, content archives, and a rich, easy-to-use CRM that helps gallerists showcase artists.

Easy planning.

Millennium Park is Chicago's "front lawn." It offers hundreds of free cultural programs including concerts, exhibitions, tours, and family activities.

The Neoteric CMS drives Millennium Park's publishing platform. Complex calendars are fed to custom designed Apple and Android apps, where Chicagoans and tourists alike peruse series and event calendars, making planning a breeze. Find out how we did it.

Exhibition interactives. 

How can we teach financial literacy topics—like  saving, spending and avoiding fraud—in a way that is not only understandable, but fun? Neoteric worked with a team of exhibit designers, illustrators, and content experts to create the digital interactives for Thinking Money: a Financial Expedition

Thinking Money was developed by the American Library Association Public Programs Office in collaboration with the FINRA Investor Education Foundation, whose support made this exhibition possible.

Content on-the-go.

Chicago Gallery News is Chicago’s leading source for art gallery news, events, and listings. 

Now it’s even easier to keep up to date. CGN publishes to their website, and to Apple News. It provides a beautiful reading experience on the iPad and iPhone, and helps readers to save, favorite, and share stories. Soon, CGN will upgrade to the new Apple News Format for Publishers, which offers custom editorial layouts, georgeous typography, and engaging stories with interactive photo galleries, videos, and more.


“...Neoteric did absolutely anything necessary to meet our high-profile, unmovable launch date... The entire team cheerfully, professionally, and beautifully met our needs with vision, patience, humor, and a true, deep interest in the story we were trying to tell.”
