We’re thrilled to announce the launch of the new website for The Good Fork restaurant in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
The CBKB — that’s Cost Benefit Knowledge Bank — is an initiative of the Vera Institute of Justice which takes an intricate look at the cost-implications of various State and governmental policies in the Justice System. In their own words:
We help practitioners and jurisdictions build their capacity to conduct cost-benefit studies and apply cost-benefit analysis to policymaking.
As part of our continuing work with Vera (and websites for nonprofits), we recently helped the CBKB relaunch their website. Though we retained the core design and interface, we worked closely with CBKB admins to make small adjustments to improve the user experience: streamlining layouts, making margins more clean and consistent, and thinking about placement of related content, search result display, and the other “small things” that make a big difference when it comes to user interface design.
We also worked on reshaping the information architecture (IA), creating a more intuitive backend interface that pulled apart different types of content and set up new ways to classify and enter information moving forward.

Picking up on our work with artist, filmmaker, and general man-about-town Julian Schnabel, we recently designed and developed a custom, self-hosted video section on julianschnabel.com. The new section highlights behind the scenes footage and other archival material and video art from Schnabel and company, including a short documentary, sculpture in Switzerland, and a ‘making of’ featurette for Ahab.
Rather than embedding videos via a third party service such as youtube or vimeo, we designed and implemented a custom player, giving a more branded, streamlined look and feel. As part of our ongoing mission to serve artists and creatives in New York (and beyond!), we’re thrilled to expand the growing portfolio website and online home for Julian Schnabel.
