Civic Explore

From our Portfolio
Civic Explore

Civic Explore is the project of several organizations in New York City that aims to collect data to shine a light on ideas such as the availability of bicycling as alternative energy policy across gender, race and age, the effect of policing on bicycling as alternative energy policy, and the effect of other available transportation—like public transit or taxis—on bicycling policy. 

Social Ink worked with Civic Explore to create a home on the web for its data. Civic Explore’s audience is now able to easily engage and interpret the project’s research across several digital channels.

Key data visualizations on the site include an interactive graph that sorts data by age, time, and gender, and an interactive map that highlights relevant precincts of the collected data. Mobile responsive design adapts the site’s content for screens of various sizes. The platform  is powered by the open-source, user friendly WordPress CMS, providing a customized backend experience for no-code site administration and growth.

We’re happy to partner with Civic Explore and continue our work on websites for researchers!

Reading Rescue Tutor

Reading Rescue brings expertise in intervention into schools; not only do the students who are tutored excel, but as a result of improved pedagogical skills, a significant collateral benefit is increased achievement among all the students taught by a school’s Reading Rescue-trained tutors.

Social Ink worked with the Literacy Trust to create a new online home for its literacy intervention program, Reading Rescue. Our team created a robust CMS in WordPress for a website that serves Reading Rescue’s tutors and other stakeholders. The site is a teaching resource for tutors and an online calling card for other users.

It’s been a pleasure to work alongside Reading Rescue during the creation of their new platform. We are happy to expand upon our work on websites for nonprofits!

For people who want to be smart about buying and owning a home, HomeSmartNY is New York State’s largest network of professional, unbiased, nonprofit homeownership advisors.

Working with key team members of HomeSmartNY, we built a site from the ground up, focusing on an audience of homebuyers and homeowners, accessibility, and user interface (UI) and user experience (UX). A key feature of HomeSmartNY’s new platform is the interactive map, which allows site users to find resources specific to their needs through the use of an advanced search filter.

HomeSmartNY is doing great work educating homebuyers and homeowners in New York City and New York state; as part of our continued work with web design for nonprofits, Social Ink is happy to set them up with a platform that engages their users.

As a coalition of city transportation departments, NACTO is committed to raising the state of the practice for street design and transportation by building a common vision, sharing data, peer-to-peer exchange in workshops and conferences, and regular communication among member cities.

Social Ink worked with the National Association of City Transportation Officials to make a new web platform that represents the multifaceted policy and outreach work of the organization and serves as a resource for government, civic partners, and the general public. Through a custom WordPress CMS, NACTO can easily build information hubs around new pedestrian-friendly design standards and instantly add program-specific news, events, and publications.

Key features of NACTO’s new web platform include in depth guides and publications, annual conferences, programming, and event organizing, tiered sponsorships, and cross-content references and case studies, accessible via an ajax-enabled advanced search mechanism. As always, the site’s features responsive design that adapts the site’s layout for an array of tablets, phones, and monitors.

For NACTO’s “design guides”  for the livable streets movement, we not only imported over 1,000 documents but retrofitted templates from two different sites with multiple slideshows, images and other rich media – all while preserving link structure for existing search engine and linking compatibility.

We’re proud of our partnership with the National Association of City Transportation Officials, furthering our work building websites for nonprofits, civic groups, and local New York-based organizations!
