Smells like a new website! Freshkills Park Alliance relaunches with a robust new web presence.

“Freshkills.” Was there ever a better name for a landfill? An infamous location in New York City lore, the former “dump” is now being transformed into a sparkling 2200 acre urban park, with an ambitious plan for mixed use applications across the spectrum of public participation.

It’s been our great honor here at Social Ink to have spent the last year working closely with the Freshkills Park Alliance (the non-profit which partners with the City of New York to redevelop the site) to re-plan, organize, and rebuild the FKPA website, from design through to development. Carrying forward our founding mission to serve nonprofits, public and civic-minded organizations, we can’t wait to see the Park unfold as the plan comes to life.

Bridges to Community revamps their website with a clean, action-oriented vision.

Bridges to Community is a local, New York area non-profit doing amazing work in Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. By organizing volunteer trips to specific sites in these countries, Bridges builds connections across an array of program areas to help improve housing, education, health, and economic development.

As part of our work building websites for nonprofits, Social Ink worked with Bridges to Community to overhaul their design and their content organization (what we call information architecture). With a rebuilt site, Bridges can now directly organize trips and supporting events and other activities, via on-site payments and intelligent workflows which bring users to ‘checkout’ endpoints based on their preferences and other information.

Two exciting new launches strengthen our relationship to New York City's diverse communities!

We’re delighted to announce two new launches of the last month, the progressive and activist journalism site Waging Nonviolence, and the fresh, exciting classical music guild Concert Artists Guild.

Waging Nonviolence’s exciting mission:

Waging Nonviolence is a source for original news and analysis about struggles for justice and peace around the globe. Ordinary people build power using nonviolent strategies and tactics every day, even under the most difficult of circumstances, yet these stories often go unnoticed or misunderstood by a media industry fixated on violence and celebrity.

Concert Artist Guild’s mission is also one of helping the community:

Founded in 1951 with a mission to discover, nurture & promote young musicians, Concert Artists Guild helps artists launch sustainable careers. CAG provides support to a roster of talented artists during a critical and formative time: between completion of formal studies and the achievement of an established career.
