Ma'yan

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.

Interactive Map

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!

Freshkills Park Alliance

From our Portfolio

Continuing our work building websites for civic groups and public-sector organizations such as the New York City Parks, we worked closely with the Freshkills Park Alliance to design, develop and implement and foundational website for public outreach, information, and resources.

The website gives Freshkills Park an extended reach as this massive urban landscape redevelopment project proceeds in the former Freshkills Landfill in Staten Island.

Project challenges included on-site, recurring donations, events integration with Eventbrite, visual identity alignment, and considerable information architecture consulting to make sense of the breadth of resources and information that the Alliance offers. The site is fully mobile responsive, adapting to touch devices and lower resolution screens without loading a separate site.

The Freshkills Park Alliance, along with the New York City Parks Department, is powering an amazing, and vital public works project; we can’t wait to see the plan unfold in the coming years.

Social Ink has been in NYC since 2007!
