Projects We've Worked On
Thanks to our fantastic clients we've had the chance to contribute our work to:
The FabFems directory is a national database of women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) professions who are inspiring role models for young women. The FabFems directory is accessible to young women, girl-serving STEM programs, and other organizations that are working to increase career awareness and interest in STEM.
The National Girls Collaborative Project™ (NGCP) is designed to reach girl-serving STEM organizations across the United States.
ReimagineCBC.ca is a solutions-focused community igniting a national conversation to reimagine the role of public media in the age of participation.
Participedia is a project that enables researchers and practitioners to collaboratively build a shared knowledge base of information on global participatory democracy projects, innovation, and public engagement. Our work on this project featured a Mediawiki to Drupal 7 migration, and significant work with Search API and Facet API.
Affinity Bridge was a collaborating partner in the Vision Vancouver website redesign, leading up to the 2011 Vancouver municipal election, which saw the Mayor and all councillors, and park and school board trustees running (re)elected. The redesign included numerous features including an interactive map, and a new custom theme.
The Center for Health Market Innovations (CHMI) works with programs that focus on improving health (physical and financial) for the poor. They help evaluate and aggregate information on Health Market Innovations.
The Transparency and Accountability (TAP) program is a program run by Results for Development, to help civil society organizations hold the government accountable for efficiency in social sector public spending.
Ocean Wise is a program that tracks the sources of, and methods for fishing, sustainable seafood. This site targets the general public, enabling them to research their seafood and eat more sustainably sourced seafood, and also provides a certification and promotional system for restaurants that serve sustainable seafood.
The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is an ongoing project to support community cleanups of shorelines around the country. It includes group collaboration spaces for cleanup groups to do planning and communicate with members, as well as an interactive map search for cleanup sites/groups.
In 2010, the Co-operative Housing Federation of BC came to us looking for a redesign of their site with a content management system (CMS) that would allow them full control over their site content, as well as space to grow and adapt to their changing needs. We designed a new theme and special features like a searchable directory and private content areas to accommodate their membership into the future.
Through years of hosting Canada's foremost conference on brain injury, the Pacific Coast Brain Injury Conference Society saw the need for a dedicated source for information and educational resources in Canada. This materialized in the form of Brainstreams.ca, a website that provides centralized resources for professionals working with the brain injured, as well as survivors of brain injury and their families.
Affinity Bridge and Junxion Strategy partnered to design and develop an intranet for BC Housing that helps promote and share knowledge surrounding sustainability within the context of both the work they do, and their organization.
In a few short weeks, we helped Teachers Without Borders with a complete redesign and retheme of their about site.
We helped Teachers Without Borders improve their TWB Groups sites to support knowledge sharing and collaboration among their members.
We implemented Drupal's Organic Groups to allow the various external research groups (whose sites were all running on various other software in a piecemeal fashion) to be migrated into the main TRIUMF site. This has allowed for unified branding, across the board functionality updates, and easier maintenance, while continuing to support the various groups' work.
The Chinese version of the UBC Faculty of Forestry's Sustainable Forest Management Indicator Knowledge Base project works to spread knowledge and understanding about sustainable forestry indicators in China and provides web based tools to facilitate communication, research, and collaboration.
The University of British Columbia Faculty of Forestry's Sustainable Forest Management Indicator Knowledge Base project works to spread knowledge and understanding about sustainable forestry indicators worldwide.
We developed a custom DB2 interface for Drupal, enabling University of Ottawa to use Drupal as a bridge between two systems, in this case as a middleware layer for managing notifications to the student portal.
Affinity Bridge developed the My Business 2010 subsite as a section of the main VEDC site that provided information to businesses surrounding the Vancouver 2010 Olympics.
Taunton has a series of websites for each of the publications that provide additional content and discussion forums. The sites were previously running on a custom content management system (CMS) that was built in .NET and PHP, and we converted each of them to use Drupal.
We built a contest framework to support a social experiment on the topic of procrastination. Users were segmented into 4 separate roles, and each role was given different instructions on how to proceed with the contest. At a technical level, the contest platform enforces rules for a scavenger hunt, each contestant can only see the current clue they are working on, and once they complete the current clue, the next clue is revealed to them.
S4S's Claros provides custom systems for multi-agency programs to plan and manage their internal and external projects and to show progress toward sustainability goals. Affinity Bridge worked together with S4S to develop several generations of their flagship software, which ties together mission values, disparate projects, and sustainability indicators in a richly interlinked data architecture, to create meaningful overviews of multi-project status.
Wilderness Committee, in their mission to protect Canada’s biodiversity through strategic research and grassroots public education, is citizen-funded, and they wanted to better leverage their web presence to solicit donations. Affinity Bridge helped develop their online store and donations system.
The PlanNYC web portal provides information on housing and urban development in New York City categorized by neighbourhood and planning project, and strives to give a broad range of viewpoints and resources on the issues at hand.
Affinity Bridge helped The Dalai Lama Center to develop a new website that allows them to easily keep their content (including a new blog) up to date, showcase information about the Center and the various programs they run, and better manage and integrate content related to their conferences.
ChangeEverything is Vancity's project to create an online community that helps foster and encourage positive change, be it social, economic, environmental, or personal.
Ecolabelling.org is an extensive directory of green product labels. The site features powerful faceted searching to make it easier for people to learn more about ecolabels and green products.
