Working alongside policy and research leaders at the Vera Institute of Justice, the website provides a staging platform for the grant-seeking competition, as well as issue-related resources, research and reports, and as an ongoing way to track progress by selected jurisdictions.

Building a hearth for an old school journalist and author--and a leading digital thinker and success story of the digital economy.
We've been hard at work for the last several months on a big rebuild, working with the dedicated and hard-working Communications department at Working Families to transition their old, outdated website to a new platform as the organization shifts their aim from a local, New York-based entity to a growing national presence. Working Families is growing, fast. With a plan to be active in all 50 states, their current outreach has far outpaced their old, "blog style". We worked to analyze their information architecture, and build a system that could easily grow as they did -- without the need for technical implementation at every turn. For more about the project, including screenshots and a scope summary, see our portfolio entry, or, head on over to the Working Families website!
"Freshkills." Was there ever a better name for a landfill? An infamous location in New York City lore, the former "dump" is now being transformed into a sparkling 2200 acre urban park, with an ambitious plan for mixed use applications across the spectrum of public participation. It's been our great honor here at Social Ink to have spent the last year working closely with the Freshkills Park Alliance (the non-profit which partners with the City of New York to redevelop the site) to re-plan, organize, and rebuild the FKPA website, from design through to development. Carrying forward our founding mission to serve nonprofits, public and civic-minded organizations, we can't wait to see the Park unfold as the plan comes to life. Check out the Freshkills Park Alliance website to learn more and get involved. For more about our work on the project, head on over to our portfolio entry.
We're thrilled to announce the launch of the new website for Highbridge Voices, an arts- and youth-centric nonprofit using music education and performance to enrich the lives of local children in the Highbridge neighborhood of the Bronx, NY. We specialize in working with nonprofits to help them grow, based around our model of collaborative work and building sites that can be independently managed down the road.
We're thrilled to announce the launch of the new website for The Good Fork restaurant in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
Recently we launched our third website dealing with the complicated nodes of the criminal justice world in the United States. As part of our larger work with nonprofit websites, this project was another initiative of the Vera Institute of Justice: The Status Offense Reform Center (SORC). SORC is a resource center for lawmakers, policymakers and activists interested in reforming these systems, concerned primarily with juvenile justice and the criminalizing semantics of institutional and systemic intervention. The project adds to our work with The Correctional Association and Raise the Age - NY, in addition to Vera's JH Connect project, to provide a cohesive groundwork for reform movements in the NYC area and beyond. This major initiative was as challenging as it is vital, as we helped to integrate a library hundreds of resources and publications into an accessible interface and built a toolkit for reform with a narrative approach. With the SORC launch, we continue to work toward our mission of providing web design for nonprofits working across the social justice spectrum.
