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.

Corporate Volunteers of New York connects professionals with peer networks, resources, and education to increase the benefit of corporate volunteerism on companies and communities. Founded in 1972, Corporate Volunteers of New York (“CVNY”) is the coalition of over fifty major corporations that recognize the critical importance of volunteerism and corporate social responsibility in the communities in which we all work and live.

Social Ink worked with the Corporate Volunteers of New York to create site for its corporate members receive exclusive updates and resources. We developed their membership site in the user-friendly WordPress CMS, giving CVNY administrators easy-to-use tools to communicate with their members, track and update memberships, and distribute digital resources from their seasonal events. The site is also responsive across screens and phones of various sizes.

We’re happy to work with volunteer organizations like CVNY on creating a digital space for their members. This project is a continuation of Social Ink’s great work on websites for nonprofits!

CUNY John Jay Misdemeanor Justice Project Featured

The Misdemeanor Justice Project seeks to understand the criminal justice response to low-level offenses, from arrest to disposition. Striving to provide an empirical framework to data-driven policy initiatives at local, state, and national levels aimed at improving society’s response to these offenses, the Misdemeanor Justice Project is fully committed to working with criminal justice practitioners to obtain accurate data, provide objective analyses, and disseminate our findings to key stakeholders in the community, scholars, and policy-makers to spur a national discourse on the effectiveness and fairness of law enforcement and criminal justice responses to low-level offenses.

Social Ink is happy to have led the design and development of the all-new web platform for the Misdemeanor Justice Project, a critical new research initiative at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

During their research, MJP collected millions of lines of data on misdemeanors in the five boroughs of New York City. Social Ink helped MJP  place downloadable data interactives on the site, allowing users to tailor a data snapshot of summonses depending on the counties or years on which they choose to focus. Other key features of the site include advanced filtering, a curated news and media section and downloadable pdfs of research publications. The site’s responsive design ensures users have an easy time viewing the data on most phones, tablets, and larger monitors.

We wish the Misdemeanor Justice Project the very best as they launch the Research Network of jurisdictions beyond New York City. Social Ink is proud to have designed and developed this platform for MJP and continue our work on websites for academics and researchers.

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.

We’re very pleased to help CMS NY launch this dynamic new platform. Our work with them is a testament to our expertise in creating websites for think tanks and policy institutes!

Health Professionals and Allied Employees (HPAE) is the largest union of Registered Nurses and health care professionals in New Jersey. With more than 12,000 members, they are also the fastest growing health care union in the state. Nurses, social workers, therapists, technicians, medical researchers, and other healthcare professionals join HPAE to advance and improve patient care and professional practices and working conditions in their health care facilities. Whether it is advocating for safe staffing at the bedside, for patient and worker safety, for adequate funding for medical research and health care access, HPAE members play a strong role in setting standards for health care throughout New Jersey and the nation.

In the summer of 2016 we launched the new flagship site for Health Professionals and Allied Employees. Planning strategically with the union’s leadership, Social Ink built a custom CMS powered by WordPress, created to manage events, downloadable publications and union forms, campaigns, and much more. Designed and developed to grow as the union grows, this site reflects HPAE’s transition from a regional advocate to a national presence.

Key features of the site include a custom locals locator for union members and a hub for each individual local. The site is responsive across several phones, tablets, screens, other displays.

Our collaboration with HPAE expands our great portfolio in the political arena. We’re delighted to continue creating websites for unions and advocacy organizations!

AFM members also make music for films, TV, commercials and sound recordings. As the largest union of musicians in the world, AFM has the power to make the music industry work for musicians.

Social Ink is proud to have worked with the American Federation of Musicians on the complete overhaul of their flagship site. Built in the user-friendly WordPress CMS, the site primarily serves current and potential members. We coordinated with AFM leadership to design an immersive site that gave them embedded video, social media integration, news, an interactive feature demonstrating the steps of union organizing, and easy-to-reference resources for various types of musicians.

Key features of the site include dual language options for the many French speaking members in the Canadian branch of the union, an interactive travel kit tool with quick tips and resources for traveling with instruments, a locator for union locals, and mobile and responsive design.

We are thrilled to continue our work with progressive organizations, creating websites for political organizations and advocacy groups.

Scholars at Risk at NYU

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.

In 2003, Congress passed the landmark Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA), recognizing that sexual abuse is a serious and persistent problem in correctional environments. The Vera Institute of Justice helped the Johnson County Department of Corrections form a partnership with the county’s sexual assault response team (SART) and develop a comprehensive sexual assault response policy for an adult community confinement facility and a local juvenile facility. The SARTs in Corrections website reflects the project’s work and the lessons learned throughout the process and features a guide to help facilities implement the PREA standards.

Social Ink is very pleased to lead the design and development for the Sexual Assault Response Teams in Corrections’ home on the web, a site disseminating the project’s guide for community confinement and juvenile detention facilities.

The interactive site leads administrators of local community confinement and juvenile detention facilities through the steps of connecting with a local SART. Administrators can download and print each part of the guide, including training materials and participant surveys.  Social Ink completed the graphic design of the guide’s print layout and in the CMS we built a custom interface for building new chapters dynamically. The site’s responsive design makes sure users will have an easy time viewing the information on most phones, tablets, and larger monitors.

We’re very glad to have worked with researchers and administrators from the Vera Institute of Justice on this tremendously important project. The PREA SARTs site represents our continuing work on websites for foundations, nonprofits, think-tanks, and government jurisdictions.
