Apt613 & OAK: A Community Partnership

We are absolutely thrilled to announce the launch of Apartment613’s new website later today (stay tuned, it’ll be live at around 9:00 pm)!  As Apt613’s technology partner, OAK has been working zealously to redesign, re-architect, develop and launch a fresh and innovative web presence for Apt613.  As a part of this commitment, OAK will also provide on-going technical support to ensure that the rivoting content of Apt613 continues to be presented and shared to Ottawaians in the best possible way.

A Little About Apartment613

Apt613 is Ottawa’s go-to community website, committed to connecting people to their neighborhoods.  Written and produced by a group of passionate & eclectic individuals whose goal is to uncover the pulse of the city, Apt613 profiles “exciting people, places and going ons”; that is, the world of art, dance, music, food, fashion, politics, love, opinion, and anything interesting in the Ottawa scene.  Apt613 is a platform for participation and community building, only 3 years old, but already the gold standard in Ottawa.

We are super excited to announce our partnership with the Collaborative for Innovative Social Enterprise Development (CISED). Starting January 2012, OAK is helping CISED with the development and launch a new digital and web strategy, which includes a complete overhaul of their web presence, review of their social media footprint and ongoing advisory support to put in place a technology roadmap that will help CISED leverage its strengths and deliver timely and relevant support to Social Enterprises from across Ottawa.

 

What does this mean?
In a nutshell, CISED is committed to offering the best tech tools for social entrepreneurs and OAK will help CISED with the development of the tools and the strategy for their deployment – while constantly reviewing the consumption of all support delivered through tech platforms.

Launch of Welcoming Communities Initiative

New WCI HomepageYesterday OAK launched the new website for The Welcoming Communities Initiative.  But don’t be fooled by the pretty layout and bright colours.  This is not just a facelift; this is a redesign of their content management solution, allowing them to manage and share their members, editors, publications and resources quickly, efficiently, and most importantly, in house, by themselves.

See our case study for more information on the project: WCI Case Study

We’d also like to make give a shout out to the amazing project management from the WCI end from Meyer Burnstein and Victoria Esses.  Our design, creative and technical processes were only strengthened by working with clients who have a strong management structure & process on their end.   It was an absolute pleasure to work with them!

OneTouchRecycle – OAK submission to Apps4Ottawa

There is a need in Ottawa for a mobile app that makes recycling locally super simple, giving you specific details of where you can recycle and exactly what you can recycle. For a G7 capital, Ottawa’s recycling footprint – and to a huge extent our recycling awareness – is frankly quite appalling. To think of it, you can still not easily find recycling in commercial “ready to go premium beverage” shops and other recycling heavy businesses should/has to change. It is our opinion that a mobile application in this domain will offer environmentally conscious citizens greater choice and empower them to drive change/innovation in this domain and it will help convert those who are still on the edge of jumping on to the “Eco-Friendly Recycling Conscious” bandwagon.
