"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.
WEDO (Women's Environment and Development Organization) was one of our first major clients and remain long time favorite of ours. We just finished helping them officially kick off the celebration of their 20th anniversary, a campaign they call WEDO 20+. Help them celebrate 20 years of incredible work towards Women's Leadership, Sustainability, and Global Governance around the world. Here's to twenty--plus many more!
We're pleased to announce the recent stage 1 launch of Project Vortex, a non-profit organization which commits itself to using salvaged ocean debris as materials and inspiration for art. We set up Project Vortex with a fully functional, CMS including slideshows and an integrated news feed. We were particularly happy to work alongside fellow designer Justin Troust of secondsight art, whose great design we were able to execute for the site. Read more about Project Vortex on our portfolio.
