Housing Works Homepage

Every now and then a project comes along that just makes me so glad to be doing the things I do. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy my work. I even look forward to jumping out of bed and starting my day. But sometimes a project is just truly exceptional. Recently, I had the honor of working on just such a project with the brilliant folks at Happy Cog.

From Housing Works’ about page:

Housing Works is committed to ending the twin crises of AIDS and homelessness. We believe that all people have the right to a rich and empowering life. Since 1990, we have provided the highest quality services for homeless men, women, and children living with HIV and AIDS in New York City and beyond.

That’s a powerful cause, and it’s awesome to get to interact with and ultimately help those who are carrying it out. They are an awe-inspiring group of people.

With the excellent art direction of Daniel Mall, front-end development by yours truly, and Expression Engine development by the extremely talented Mark Huot we crafted the new Housing Works website that focused especially on the human side of their work.

For more about the project, check out the case study on Happy Cog’s website, and definitely make sure to visit Housing Works to see it for yourself.
