NewYorkScapes at NYU

From our Portfolio

Founded in 2013, NewYorkScapes comprises a number of activities, among them a NewYorkScapes Writing Group, an Urban Space Reading Group, and faculty workshop dedicated to integrating long-term digital projects into the larger collective research community.

NewYorkScapes uses digital concepts and tools to delve into the history of urban cultures. The initiative requires a powerful CMS that uses digital forms to engage a broad research community and Social Ink worked with NYS staff to make that a reality.

To invigorate the site branding and visual identity, we created a new logo and a user interface tailored for researchers. The design and logo take inspiration from New York City’s rich history and endless diversity, translating that in an internet setting. Harnessing tags and hub templates, the site connects and organizes principal investigators, their projects, and various research areas. Users can quickly delve into one research project or browse the breadth of studies in one research area.

As with all our projects, this site features SEO tools for its administrators and is responsive across myriad phones, tablets, laptops, and monitors.  A custom-made installation of the WordPress CMS, key features of the site include a robust data catalog, advanced search and sorting tools, and events mapping.

Our work with NewYorkScapes is a representation of our various partnerships with New York City’s academic community and its need for modern, user-friendly web platforms. We’re so glad to have helped bring the latest iteration of this dynamic research tool to life!

 

Scholars at Risk at NYU

From our Portfolio
Scholars at Risk Homepage

Scholars at Risk offers safety by arranging temporary academic positions at member universities and colleges to scholars facing grave threats, so scholars’ ideas are not lost and they can keep working until conditions improve and return to their home countries.

In spring 2016, Social Ink worked with Scholars at Risk to completely overhaul the network’s home on the web. We partnered with administrators from SAR to create a web platform that allowed international branches of the organization to upload their specific content and integrate Salsa forms for donations and scholar submissions. The site is responsive across several tablets, monitors, and phones.

Social Ink is glad to have made this site with Scholars at Risk. It represents our work at the nexus between advocacy and academia.

Global Institute for Advanced Study at NYU sponsors working research groups on innovative and (typically) interdisciplinary topics that require cooperation on an international scale and a sustained multi-year focus.

Social Ink and the Global Institute for Advanced Study at NYU worked together in 2016 to create a web presence for the university institution. GIAS provides financial and academic support to working groups based in existing departments of NYU, led by an NYU faculty member.

The new GIAS site utilizes an open-source, user-friendly WordPress CMS, providing a customized backend experience for no-code site administration and growth. Key features include an easy-to-update Current Projects template and mobile responsive design that adapts content for myriad screens sizes.

We’re happy to have partnered with GIAS on this project that helps to support scholars and their research endeavors. The design and development of the institute’s new site is a continuation of Social Ink’s work on websites for nonprofits and university organizations!

Social Ink has been in NYC since 2007!
