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.

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.

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.

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.

Social Ink is proud to have worked with the American Federation of Musicians on the complete overhaul of their flagship site.

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.

Public Curricula

Public Curricula is an advocacy group concerned with the intersections of social justice, technology and technology’s audience. From international trade agreements to neighborhood protests, technology is integral to everyone’s life. But how we use it should not be taken for granted. PC approached us about an issue dear to their members’ hearts: openness, privacy concerns and big tech companies.

With Public Curricula team, we devised a comparison tool that allowed the user to compare take-down requests from governments across the world, and how Google responded in the various countries in which it operates. Importing data via Google’s open database files, we created a simple, visually strong tool that utilized predictive typing, infographic comparison and other visual cues to quickly communicate the problem without overwhelming the user.
