We recently finished a website overhaul for WE ACT for Environmental Justice. The new platform focuses on the organization's incredible story and its mission to empower and organize low-income, people of color to build environmentally healthy communities. Check out the project details in our portfolio.
WE ACT’s mission is to build healthy communities by ensuring that people of color and/or low income residents participate meaningfully in the creation of sound and fair environmental health and protection policies and practices.
WE ACT needed a place on the web that told the organization’s incredible story and helped organize their many members around their public actions. WEACT’s new site utilizes dynamic content “hubs,” with a custom CMS built to dynamically build sections which combine and collate related content from across the spectrum of their advocacy. Tying in third-party integration with organizing and membership tools, the new site provides WEACT with a new toolset for activism in today’s critically important activist environment.
We were happy to work with West Harlem Environmental Action on the overhaul of their new flagship website. It’s a continuation of our great work on websites for nonprofits!
Corporate Volunteers of New York connects professionals with peer networks, resources, and education to increase the benefit of corporate volunteerism on companies and communities. Founded in 1972, Corporate Volunteers of New York (“CVNY”) is the coalition of over fifty major corporations that recognize the critical importance of volunteerism and corporate social responsibility in the communities in which we all work and live.
Social Ink worked with the Corporate Volunteers of New York to create site for its corporate members receive exclusive updates and resources. We developed their membership site in the user-friendly WordPress CMS, giving CVNY administrators easy-to-use tools to communicate with their members, track and update memberships, and distribute digital resources from their seasonal events. The site is also responsive across screens and phones of various sizes.
We’re happy to work with volunteer organizations like CVNY on creating a digital space for their members. This project is a continuation of Social Ink’s great work on websites for nonprofits!
Laura Rosenthal Audition Lab’s mission is to demystify the process and teach you how to take control of your audition. To help you improve we stick to clear, straightforward information about what a casting director wants.
Social Ink is happy to have created a home on the web for Laura Rosenthal Audition Lab! We built their site from the ground up, providing a distinct color palette and typography guidelines that complemented the Lab’s existing logo and visual identity.
Features of the site include a blog, quick tips placed throughout the site, and a sophisticated sign-up system for the audition classes the lab offers. The site is mobile-responsive and can be viewed across several displays, phones, and tablets.
With the Laura Rosenthal Audition Lab, Social Ink continues our extensive work on websites for artists and creatives.
Ma’yan is a program of JCC Manhattan, working toward greater equality for women and all people, in the Jewish community and the wider world. Based in New York City, they provide feminist, social justice, and leadership training to self-identified teen girls and teach vital skills to parents and educators.
In Fall 2016, Social Ink helped Ma’yan with the CMS conversion of its main website, moving the site from its Drupal model and rebuilding it on the open-source WordPress platform. We created a flexible user-interface to help various users of the site easily access Ma’yan’s many resources. Maintaining the organization’s youthful visual identity, we made light design changes to reflect new thinking in the web world. The Ma’yan site is mobile-responsive and works across various devices based on pixel depth and screen size.
We’re proud to have teamed up with such a great organization that provides progressive, feminist training to young women. Our work with Ma’yan is a testament to Social Ink’s work on websites for nonprofits and advocacy groups.
The Misdemeanor Justice Project seeks to understand the criminal justice response to low-level offenses, from arrest to disposition. Striving to provide an empirical framework to data-driven policy initiatives at local, state, and national levels aimed at improving society’s response to these offenses, the Misdemeanor Justice Project is fully committed to working with criminal justice practitioners to obtain accurate data, provide objective analyses, and disseminate our findings to key stakeholders in the community, scholars, and policy-makers to spur a national discourse on the effectiveness and fairness of law enforcement and criminal justice responses to low-level offenses.
Social Ink is happy to have led the design and development of the all-new web platform for the Misdemeanor Justice Project, a critical new research initiative at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice.
During their research, MJP collected millions of lines of data on misdemeanors in the five boroughs of New York City. Social Ink helped MJP place downloadable data interactives on the site, allowing users to tailor a data snapshot of summonses depending on the counties or years on which they choose to focus. Other key features of the site include advanced filtering, a curated news and media section and downloadable pdfs of research publications. The site’s responsive design ensures users have an easy time viewing the data on most phones, tablets, and larger monitors.
We wish the Misdemeanor Justice Project the very best as they launch the Research Network of jurisdictions beyond New York City. Social Ink is proud to have designed and developed this platform for MJP and continue our work on websites for academics and researchers.
