The New Economy Project works with community groups to build an economy that works for all, based on principles of cooperation, democracy, equity, racial justice, and ecological sustainability.

Continuing our work developing websites for nonprofits and progressive organizations, Social Ink was thrilled to create a brand new web presence for the New Economy project, helping create sustained campaigns challenging corporate actions threatening communities and perpetuating inequality.

Chhaya CDC Mid-Homepage

Chhaya CDC was founded in 2000 to advocate for the housing needs of New York City’s South Asian community. Our mission is to work with New Yorkers of South Asian origin to advocate for and build economically stable, sustainable, and thriving communities.

We worked alongside the fine folks at Chhaya to completely overhaul their web presence, from an outdated, impossible to update “frankensite” to a sleek, easy-to-update CMS.  With large information panels, dedicated sections for different types of content, twitter feed integration, slideshow, and resources, Chhaya can better serve the community and extend their outreach.

We are proud of our work alongside ChhayaCDC, continuing our mission to build websites for nonprofits and community organizations in New York City.

Freshkills Park Alliance: Homepage

Continuing our work building websites for civic groups and public-sector organizations such as the New York City Parks, we worked closely with the Freshkills Park Alliance to design, develop and implement and foundational website for public outreach, information, and resources.

The website gives Freshkills Park an extended reach as this massive urban landscape redevelopment project proceeds in the former Freshkills Landfill in Staten Island.

Project challenges included on-site, recurring donations, events integration with Eventbrite, visual identity alignment, and considerable information architecture consulting to make sense of the breadth of resources and information that the Alliance offers. The site is fully mobile responsive, adapting to touch devices and lower resolution screens without loading a separate site.

The Freshkills Park Alliance, along with the New York City Parks Department, is powering an amazing, and vital public works project; we can’t wait to see the plan unfold in the coming years.

Highbridge Voices

Highbridge Voices - Homepage

Highbridge Voices is an arts-centric nonprofit in the Highbridge area of the Bronx, NY, focusing on youth development through music education and performance.

Continuing our work building websites for nonprofits, we worked alongside the Highbridge team to completely overhaul their old, static website, bringing them into the ‘modern’ age of the web. By re-organizing their content, focusing on audience, access, and prioritization, we re-shaped their presence and outreach, providing a CMS-powered site that will grow with the organization–and can be managed day-to-day by organizational staff.

Specific project challenges included a vast multimedia collection, including audio players, video, and slideshow galleries, and integrated, self-hosted donations for fundraising, including recurring donations. We extend Highbridge outreach by integrating the site with the Mailchimp CRM and E-Newsletter platform, setting up seamless collection forms to keep their audience engaged beyond the site itself.

We’re thrilled to work with this vital youth-oriented nonprofit and community organization, and count them as a shining example of the kind of clients we had in mind when we founded Social Ink.
