Civic Explore

From our Portfolio

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!

Triangle Manufacturing partners with clients, global original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), to develop a wide range of devices for all facets of the medical industry. With extensive expertise in powered tools, hip implants, knee implants, and spinal and trauma devices, Triangle is instrumental in the collaborative design, manufacturing and quality delivery of an array of medical implants and instrumentation.

Social Ink created a new site, the launch of which coincided with Triangle’s next phase of growth as a family-owned manufacturing company. Key considerations for the project were customer relationship management (CRM) integration and a custom, open-source, user friendly CMS for Triangle employees. The site is responsive and mobile across various displays and phones.

We were very pleased to work with Triangle on their new web platform; this project serves as a great example of Social Ink’s expertise on websites for manufacturers.

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.

The NYC Justice Corps seeks to develop the capacity of neighborhoods to address the reintegration challenges of their young adults reentering from the criminal justice system and to instill in those young adults a sense of civic responsibility and accountability to the communities to which they return.

We were thrilled at the opportunity to work alongside the Prisoner Reentry Institute leadership to overhaul the NYCJC website, with a focus on accessibility, community-based content organization, and a dynamic, multi-media “toolbox”, a marquis feature delivering tools for program deployment in a flexible model poised for growth to future program areas.

Through local, community-based advocacy work, we are proud to further the efforts of the NYC Justice Corps, continuing our own work building websites for nonprofits and community-based organizations.

Chhaya CDC was founded in 2000 to advocate for the housing needs of New York City’s South Asian community. Our mission is to work with New Yorkers of South Asian origin to advocate for and build economically stable, sustainable, and thriving communities.

We worked alongside the fine folks at Chhaya to completely overhaul their web presence, from an outdated, impossible to update “frankensite” to a sleek, easy-to-update CMS.  With large information panels, dedicated sections for different types of content, twitter feed integration, slideshow, and resources, Chhaya can better serve the community and extend their outreach.

Freshkills Park Alliance: Homepage

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.

Highbridge Voices

Highbridge Voices - Homepage

Highbridge Voices is an arts-centric nonprofit in the Highbridge area of the Bronx, NY, focusing on youth development through music education and performance.

Continuing our work building websites for nonprofits, we worked alongside the Highbridge team to completely overhaul their old, static website, bringing them into the ‘modern’ age of the web. By re-organizing their content, focusing on audience, access, and prioritization, we re-shaped their presence and outreach, providing a CMS-powered site that will grow with the organization–and can be managed day-to-day by organizational staff.

Specific project challenges included a vast multimedia collection, including audio players, video, and slideshow galleries, and integrated, self-hosted donations for fundraising, including recurring donations. We extend Highbridge outreach by integrating the site with the Mailchimp CRM and E-Newsletter platform, setting up seamless collection forms to keep their audience engaged beyond the site itself.

We’re thrilled to work with this vital youth-oriented nonprofit and community organization, and count them as a shining example of the kind of clients we had in mind when we founded Social Ink.
