About the Work
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 build in the 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 working for livable streets on a local and global scale!
