“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.

Donald Katz: Homepage - Websites for Creatives by Social Ink

Donald Katz is a journalist, author, and founder of Audible.com. His 1992 book, Home Fires, has been reissued this year.

We worked alongside Donald’s staff and media team to create a personal brand, identity and website. The site provides a writerly presence on the web, and a place to showcase the many facets of his work: as author & journalist, Audible.com founder, and promoter of the city of Newark, New Jersey, where Audible’s headquarters were moved in 2007.

Specialty work on the project included a two-pronged navigation system, embedded social media and video, and a flexible production environment responsive to the timelines involved with a major book release.

As part of our work designing and developing websites for creatives, including writers and new media professionals, it’s been great working with Donald and team. We encourage you to visit Don’s new site and explore his rich body of work. From essays and articles, to Home Fires and other books, to work with Audible — in Newark, and beyond!
