Bridge Street Development Corporation (BSDC) is a faith-based, 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization the mission of which is to build partnerships with businesses, government, and other community stakeholders to provide civic and economic opportunities to the residents of Central Brooklyn.

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We worked alongside the fine folks at Chhaya to completely overhaul their web presence, from an outdated, impossible to update “frankensite” to a sleek, easy-to-update CMS.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.

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!

Pennsylvanians for Quality Affordable Healthcare is an advocacy organization affiliated with healthcare workers in the greater Pittsburgh area.

This time-sensitive project included soup to nuts design and development services, from a type based logomark to web interface design and development. By merging testimonials, news updates, and fact explainer cards, along with a dedicated contact page, the “microsite” gives the organization a landing page for other marketing and web ads, and a gathering place for collective action and organization.

We’re thrilled to align with organizations fighting for worker’s rights and smart health care choices, building efficient, powerful advocacy websites in the Pittsburgh area, and beyond!

“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 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!

“Working Families is a growing progressive political organization that fights for an economy that works for all Americans, and a democracy in which every voice matters.”

Social Ink worked alongside the communications lead for Working Families to completely overhaul their website, shifting their presence from a small, grassroots startup political organization to a powerful party with an national scope. As Working Families extends their presence, starting coalitions and outreach in an increasing number of States, the site is built to grow alongside.

Project specific design and functionality includes powerful State Hubs and dynamic sidebars for multiple feeds and filtering of content, easy to implement Action modules integrated with the Salsa platform, an information architecture filtered along States, Issues, News, and Elections, and multi-faceted Twitter integration, dynamically pulling state-centric twitter feeds. The site is responsive across phones, tablets, and monitors of all shapes and sizes, built around resolution-specific breakpoints for optimal user experience and interaction.

We are thrilled to continue our work in the progressive arena, building websites for political organizations and advocacy groups.

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 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.
