New Economy Project

Continued work developing websites for nonprofits and progressive organizations for the New Economy Project NYC

We’ve been hard at work for the last several months on a big rebuild, working with the dedicated and hard-working Communications department at Working Families to transition their old, outdated website to a new platform as the organization shifts their aim from a local, New York-based entity to a growing national presence.

Working Families is growing, fast. With a plan to be active in all 50 states, their current outreach has far outpaced their old, “blog style”. We worked to analyze their information architecture, and build a system that could easily grow as they did — without the need for technical implementation at every turn.

Web design and development for Working Families, a progressive political party working across America

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.
