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!

Riverkeeper is a member-supported watchdog organization dedicated to defending the Hudson River and its tributaries and protecting the drinking water supply of nine million New York City and Hudson Valley residents. For nearly 50 years Riverkeeper has been New York’s clean water advocate. They have helped to establish globally recognized standards for waterway and watershed protection and serve as the model and mentor for the growing Waterkeeper movement that includes over 270 Keeper programs across the country and around the globe.

In early winter 2016 Social Ink partnered with Riverkeeper to redesign its home on the web. The clear, clean design and immersive experience of the new site allows the organization to share its water quality reports, organization actions, and blog content with its users.

The customized CMS of the site allows multiple organization members to choose from multiple site themes for different seasons and quickly update the site to keep users in the loop. For the first time, the site is responsive across an array of mobile devices and screen sizes.

With Riverkeeper’s new website, Social Ink is proud to continue our work on websites for nonprofits and advocacy organizations!

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.

Mobile Responsive Design (RWD)

#StopSlut is a youth-led movement that grew from the response to SLUT: The Play; its mission is to transform rape culture through activism. Social Ink worked with The Feminist Press, a nonprofit literary publisher that advocates for freedom of expression and social justice, to promote #StopSlut.

Working alongside The Feminist Press we created a web platform that provides tour information and ticketing for SLUT: The Play, serves as a launch point for youth activism, and provides support resources for advocates and survivors. The CMS powered site is responsive across phones, tablets, and monitors of various shapes and sizes and will aid the growth of the #StopSlut movement.

We are thrilled to work with The Feminist Press, continuing our service to progressive nonprofit organizations.

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.
