Updates to Portfolio

It’s been a busy busy fall here and I’m are still catching up with updating this site. In the meantime I’ve added a couple recent projects to the portfolio and have more almost ready.

One neat little project that isn’t listed yet are the ads Shayna Englin engaged us to create for the Global Day of Jewish Learning. Pairing their Big Questions with popular celebrities in tiny ad spaces proved challenging and fun. You can see a couple of the ads that are now in circulation below. Read more ›

Recent Launches & News

Its been a busy week and about to get busier. Right now I am getting ready to head to the Nonprofit Technology Conference in San Francisco and I am really looking forward to meeting some longtime and new online friends while I am there. I’ll be interviewing my fellow Idealware bloggers too and posting the results on the Idealware blog soon.

Also this week we launched the Bailout Watch Web site – a group project by six leading organizations in government transparency. If you have been wondering where all that TARP money went or need some help understanding the who, what and where of the bailout, check out the Bailout Watch site. Find out more in our portfolio.

And one more thing… NRDC asked us to translate their Eat Local campaign design to this cute little widget that’s all kinds of handy for eating local and eating well. Just pick your location and the time of year and you’ll see what’s available fresh in your neighborhood. This was another fun one and I learned a lot working with Sean Fremouw of Free Flow Data about iWidgets, which allows for the widget’s functionality and ability to be shared on all the popular social network sites and more.

Its really fantastic to get to work on projects where I learn more about the issue and that I know I will use them myself.

Project Launch: Audubon Birds and Climate Quiz

We are really excited about the launch of our first Flash project in a long time – a quiz for the National Audubon Society’s Birds and Climate campaign. The quiz features the illustrations of Sherrie York and highlights important facts from the recently released Birds and Climate report. Audubon scientists analyzed 40 years of citizen-science Christmas Bird Count data and found disturbing shifts in natural ranges of many North American species. Customizations to the quiz, such as a drag and drop to match birds with the distance they shifted north as a result of climate change, led to a highly engaging way for supporters to understand the issues and spread the word to their friends and family.

It was a really fun project on an important topic. We were delighted to work with not only the truly wonderful folks at Audubon, but also with colleagues at Sea Change Strategies and Jackson River.

Please visit BIrds and Climate  and sign the petition Рafter you take the quiz of course
