The Scaffold Safety Coalition is a group of workers and advocates committed to protecting construction workers in New York state from industry-backed efforts to cripple a vital safety regulation known as the Scaffold Safety Law (codified in New York’s Labor Law Section 240).

For a time-sensitive legislation awareness campaign, we put together a full-featured advocacy site, with information sections, slideshows, testimonials, and news updates, in addition to action areas for organizing and sign up.

We are proud to work alongside the Scaffold Safety Coalition as they fight for protection of workers and labor.

Every Vote Counts Illinois is a voter registration and participation site targeted to citizens concerned with political engagement and civil rights in Illinois.

Continuing our work building short turnaround advocacy sites for community and organizing groups, the site featured key action buttons, an information panel with slideshow capabilities, and basic information pages, along with search and contact forms, made immersive with a full bleed background image.

The site is built entirely in a user-friendly CMS, which allows for easy content upgrades by any non-technical admin. GET OUT THE VOTE!

“The Center for Ballet and the Arts at New York University is an international institute for scholars and artists of ballet and its related arts and sciences.”

Social Ink proudly worked alongside dedicated inhouse staff members at NYU’s new Center for Ballet and the Arts (CBA) to bring a robust CMS (content management system) together with beautiful, minimal design reflecting the CBA’s goals.

We helped CBA build on NYU’s strong network architecture to integrate a mailing list, content slider and easily updatable staff and program fellow archive.

Freshkills Park Alliance

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.
