Like. Friend. Share. All great stuff, but who puts the parts together in the background for everyone to... well, tweet? Development is tricky business, we like to help engineer the front end (design purpose, strategy, relevant content) with the executional part of the back end. We link purpose with programmers.
National Charity League
NCL's younger members (11 to 18) needed a safe, secure way of sharing program ideas, meeting suggestions, making new relationships with other NCL members outside of their Chapters – think Facebook, but only for 20,000.
Enter Ticktalker.org. Sorry, password protected so we can't show you. This site had to apply to ages 11 and 18, no easy task. Geared conducted demographical and trend tracking research; as well as member surveys before setting the overarching site goals.
This site isn't just a pretty design, it has the ability to pull content from a members profile and then repurpose it in strategic places... what does that mean? The site is self-maintained. NCL is busy with day-to-day, important non-profit activities, they shouldn't be burdened with continually adding content to the site. We found a creative way for the site to do it on it's own.
The second half of the site is for the members that bridge out at age 18. Think Linkedin. Network with others across the country/world. The purpose is to help each other. For instance, moving to another state for college? Search the database for other members who are attending that school. Or how about their first job? Search by industry. Perhaps find a mentor or even an opportunity. A site with family benefits.
