Fort Tryon Park Trust Home

The Fort Tryon Park Trust is the non-profit organization dedicated to the care, maintenance, and enrichment of Fort Tryon Park. Since 1998, we have developed strategic partnerships and leveraged funds to build an endowment to protect and improve Fort Tryon Park.

Social Ink is thrilled to have worked alongside the Fort Tryon Park Trust on their new website. The overhaul presents a clean, accessible site that leverages the park’s photogenic assets and serves as a true home for this multifaceted New York City Parks asset.

Key features of this project included a seamless payments and donations and custom built-in tiered membership sign up system, a live, data-integrated map of the park utilizing geolocation data for park sites and gardens, an interactive events calendar and historical timeline. We’ve also laid the groundwork and structure for a forthcoming data-based plant and bloom guide. The WordPress powered site features SEO tools for administrators and is responsive across phones, tablets, and an array of monitors.

Fort Tryon Park is a unique and precious New York City asset. We’re proud to give it a website that represents the park in all its glory.  Social Ink’s partnership with the Fort Tryon Park Trust is an example of our continued work on websites for New York City parks, the civic and community trusts and alliances that help sustain them.

Social Ink is happy to have worked side by side with the world’s largest intergovernmental organization to create a new website for its pension fund. Serving over 125,000 active and retired United Nations employees across the world, the site will serve as a portal for the services and information offered by the United Nations Joint Staff Pension Fund.

The site offers content in both English and French, guiding the Fund’s participants and beneficiaries through the organization’s extensive forms, rules, and regulations. To create a user-friendly experience that made it easy for site visitors to quickly find what they were looking for, Social Ink built a logic driven interactive that leads users to specific content based on the provided user-selected data. Other key solutions for the project included low and high bandwidth browsing options, administrator designated sidebar indices and content modules, multimedia embeds, and interactive tutorials. The site is also responsive across an array of phones, tablets, monitors, and other screens.

We’re proud to have built this expansive flagship site for the Fund and continue our work on websites for large NGOs, IGOs, nonprofits and foundations!

City Harvest-Featured

City Harvest exists to end hunger in communities throughout New York City through food rescue and distribution, education, and other practical, innovative solutions.

Social Ink is proud of the complete overhaul of the flagship website of City Harvest, New York City’s first food rescue initiative. We built their new home on the web from the ground up, working with City Harvest leadership throughout the entire web design and development process to create a secure, future facing, user-friendly desktop and mobile responsive website that shows the full breadth of the organization’s impact.

Key aspects of the project included an extensive search engine optimization audit, a dollars-to-pounds interactive on donation impact and other data visualizations, and CRM integration. The project also included several custom templates for unique content like programs, fundraising events, the City Harvest Food Council, and corporate partners.

We’re thrilled to provide this organization with a web platform; our work with City Harvest represents Social Ink’s place as a digital partner at the nexus between nonprofits, healthy communities, and volunteerism.

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!

Established in 1964, the Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS NY) is a think tank and an educational institute devoted to the study of international migration, to the promotion of understanding between immigrants and receiving communities, and to public policies that safeguard the dignity and rights of migrants, refugees and immigrants. CMS NY works with policy-makers on international, regional, national and local levels; scholars and researchers; faith-based groups; non-governmental and community-based organizations; and other civil society groups. 

Continuing our partnerships with nonprofits and think tanks, Social Ink worked with key staff and stakeholders at the Center for Migration Studies to completely overhaul their old website. The result of our collaborative work is an immersive flagship site that serves as an introduction to the organization and a user-friendly guide to its vital research publications.

Key features of this project included advanced search and filtering of the organization’s many multimedia resources and publications, flexible contact forms, email newsletter integration, and the seamless integration of 3rd party software. The site is responsive across several browsers on multiple monitors, phones, and displays.

Scholars at Risk Homepage

Scholars at Risk offers safety by arranging temporary academic positions at member universities and colleges to scholars facing grave threats, so scholars’ ideas are not lost and they can keep working until conditions improve and return to their home countries.

In spring 2016, Social Ink worked with Scholars at Risk to completely overhaul the network’s home on the web. We partnered with administrators from SAR to create a web platform that allowed international branches of the organization to upload their specific content and integrate Salsa forms for donations and scholar submissions. The site is responsive across several tablets, monitors, and phones.

Social Ink is glad to have made this site with Scholars at Risk. It represents our work at the nexus between advocacy and academia.

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.

The GDCI facilitates the exchange of ideas that help a variety of stakeholders shape streets to promote public health and safety, quality of life, multi-modal mobility, economic development, environmental sustainability and equity. GDCI believes that by working together, cities can save time and money, share lessons learned, scale up best practice implementation and more effectively achieve their policy goals and objectives.

Social Ink worked closely with the Global Designing Cities Initiative to quickly deploy their new home on the web. GDCI’s site serves as resource for seeking industry best practices in civic design and as an introduction to the organization’s comprehensive reference publication, the Global Street Design Guide.

Key features of the new web platform include an interactive map with embedded multimedia, and mobile responsive design that adapts this content for screens of various sizes. The site is powered by the open-source, user friendly WordPress CMS, providing a customized backend experience for no-code site administration and growth.

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!

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.
