Development in Practice

This rebuild project was timed to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the journal. Although the printed version has had an online presence for nearly 10 years now, this new Drupal site is the boldest departure DIP has yet made from its printed form. The content is still available in its conventional volume/issue listing. But the careful keyword indexing on all journal abstracts, means that you can now sort abstracts into topic and regional lists.

Publish What You Pay Norway

This project grew out of a request to create a Norwegian version of the new Publish What you Pay logo. The Norwegian wing of the global civil society transparency-in-mining coalition was prompted into action after the successful refit of the international website. Localising the logo just involved a bit of rearranging with the country name. The website was a bigger undertaking, as it has a focus on the capacity building work that is particular to pwyp.no.

FERN and Sinkswatch

FERN’s European Union advocacy work is focused on protecting forests and defending the rights of forest peoples. They approached us in 2008 with a familiar tale of a website that was not keeping pace with the growth and change in their activities. More of their content was being written in French as well as English and the volume and diversity of their publications was lost in a system that didn’t index it usefully.
We set up a new Drupal site for FERN with a French language sub-section, and a much more powerful publications search.

Scientists for Global Responsibility

After years of working with 100s of html coded pages on a static website, SGR managed to raise the funds to get their website rebuilt with Drupal. The budget was tight so we worked together to prioritise their requirements and make a plan that would meet their needs without overspilling. A bespoke page design was out but an automated (scripted) migration of all the old html pages into the Drupal database, and integration of their subscription form with a PayPal gateway was in. SGR took on the mammoth task of tidying up the imported data and categorising it with their new  index terms.

Logging Off

After we completed the FERN and SinksWatch websites in early 2010, Logging Off was next in the queue from this stable. The project was borne partly out of a need to improve the update-ability of the Logging Off site, but also fitted into  FERN's grander plans to standardise their online platforms using Drupal.

Publish What You Pay

PWYP regional page

Publish What You Pay's global coalition of transparency advocacy organisations has come a long way in the years since we rebuilt the site with Drupal in 2008. And there was a growing sense that the Where We Work section wasn't properly keeping pace with the range of members or their activities. So we took a fresh look at the mapping, the navigation and the page layout.

Women Living Under Muslim Laws

Thanks to their innovative approach to using ICTs, WLUML was one of GN’s first web clients to use a CMS to manage their website. Within months of setting the sytem up in 2002, their flow of daily news stories and Action Alerts had picked up speed and content began appearing in French and Arabic as well as English. Since then, their site has become a unique resource base of thousands of articles documenting the issues and concerns of women whose lives are affected by Muslim laws.

Periglobal

This Open Society initiative was set up to conduct research into the impact of privatisation in education around the world. The website was required to help with the important task of generating interest in the research and its findings. With a number of international consultations scheduled within weeks of the website commission, we had to work fast to get the site into shape for its initial outing.

Global Network of Sex Work Projects

NSWP home

NSWP's old online home was made up of a Wordpress blog and and Plone database of resources. Keeping things together, findable and updatable was becoming increasingly difficult, and serving the needs of a multi-lingual membership spread out in groups around the world had fallen by the wayside. Our brief was to build a new home for the network that would bring together all NSWP's resources and news with an obvious spotlight on key publications such as the Making Sex Work Safe handbook and the Research for Sex Work archive.

Privacy International

The last PI website rebuild was back in 2004 when we devised what felt like quite an innovative way of cross referencing content. But as is the way with our line of work, what seemed cool and groovy in 2004 had become pretty clunky and out-moded by 2010 (or probably even sooner for web fashionistas). And so the challenge 6 years on, was to refit the ship without losing any of its precious cargo and at the same time get that cargo out of the hold so that people could find it, read it and start taking action on it. And to do all that on very limited resources - of course.
