Around the Beavers Bend

McCurtain County Tourism Authority

The mountains of McCurtain County, Oklahoma, are full of the unexpected. Including 600 gorgeous cabins available every night of the year. With a well-known state park in the center of it all, we developed a brand system that connects everything and makes it much easier for a visitor to find out what else is around the Beavers Bend. It just might be Bigfoot. was named a Webpick of the Day by the prestigious Communication Arts magazine. For more on that: Press Release.

Our Focus

Cubic creates game-changing ideas – ideas that blend design, technology and culture. We are both business-driven artists and strategic technocrats.

We’re a full-service creative agency focused on telling rich and compelling stories that build brand loyalty and authenticity supported by intelligence and insights.

We understand the value of a brand, the strategies behind marketing, and the importance of technology to drive business efficiencies.

And we have the portfolio to prove it.

Who We Are

Sometimes we turn people off by our candor. This could be one of those times.

The “about us” section on every agency website states pretty much the same thing. We’re going to change the world! The status quo is unacceptable. We know the right buttons to push. We are a collection of passionate people diverse in our experience and then, voila, here’s a list of all the services we do. We’re not really into lists but are really proud of the work we do.

We offer the sort of strategic, creative and interactive services that you can find in any major city in the world. We just believe we have a different way of doing things. We don’t have a cute name or cool infographic for the process – we try to keep it simple. We learn, imagine and create.

So what makes us different? Nothing. And Everything.

She has a voracious appetite for marketing, problem solving and her clients. It is that passion that gives her energy to help find creative solutions to build business for her clients.
Kelli Mikhail
Our newest Cubican journeyed all the way from Illinois to join our crazy bunch, and we couldn’t be happier! Armed with a degree in graphic design from Parkland College, Kelli packs a power punch of typographical and illustrative experience, and specializes in both pen and ink drawings and original, handwritten typography. She’s always up for big design projects—just make sure you give her a big cup of coffee before she gets down to business.

Curious maker, habitual problem-solver, man of faith, music and family. Husband to Brittney, father to Addison. Ever the wonderer, Johnathan needs to know both how and why things work—a drive that lends itself well to development. He brings 2 years of programming and marketing related experience to the table, but don’t mistake this guy for green—he’s fluent in several programming languages, and in cheesy jokes. We think we’ll keep him!
Greg Tatum

If you want to know about electro-sensing pores on sharks, how to use a MIG welder, algorithmic efficiencies, or the rise and fall of ancient Alexandria, just ask Greg. The guiding principle behind his work is to find the middle ground between the technical and creative, and explore it to make magic happen.
Libby Bender
Vice President + Chief Branding Officer
Insanely curious, addicted to new, fueled by ideas. That’s me, the classic Sagittarian. I like creativity in all of its forms. But I’m most interested in human beings, and why we do the crazy things we do. That’s why after 16 years client-side marketing and three different gigs as marketing director I left for the intrigue of agency-side brand planning.
Katy Livingston
Art Director
Katy is a color palette connoisseur with a hunger for collage and a thirst for typography. A native Tulsan, Katy has also lived in exotic locales such as Lawrence, KS, where she spent many a sleepless night obtaining a Visual Communications degree. Katy draws on years of diverse experience, exceptional problem-solving skills and a zest for eye-catching design to provide each client the complete package of aesthetic appeal.

As De would put it, "I'd rather be tracking the dough than rolling it!"

He’s long since been a fan of interactive design, and loves finding new ways to bring stories to life. It’s from here that his love of programming stems. He’s steeped in several programming languages, and uses them to bring Cubic’s lofty development ideas to life. Alexander’s passion for helping others makes him a true asset for clients, and a great fit for Cubic.
Megan Shepherd
Copywriter + Brand Planner
Copywriter by day, other writer by night. Megan has experience with creative and editorial writing across several audiences, including brand blogging for international clients and published works in various national and regional publications. Loves traveling and cooking, hates snakes and early mornings. Sounds like tongue-in-cheek with a dash of sass.

Who You Are

Let’s face it, most businesses sell features and benefits – great customer service, great shopping, great parks, great food, great place to live, great price, great people–the list goes on and on. With a plethora of competitors that “sell” the same features and benefits, why would someone choose you? The truth is most businesses are delivering the same message to the same set of customers, and frequently spending money in the wrong places to reach them.

Instead of doing what everyone else is already doing, we take our clients down an entirely different path–one that connects an evidence-based approach to a creative strategy that builds brand loyalty, authenticity and love to maximize every penny spent. It’s that simple.

If you believe that creative solutions have to drive business, and are looking for ideas that intentionally move your business forward, then you’re a good fit for Cubic.
