The Lenfest Institute is a non-profit organization “whose sole mission is to develop and support sustainable business models for great local journalism.” When they decided to overhaul their web presence, they knew where to turn for strong strategy, design, and development.
Start Us Up Now: America’s New Business Plan is an initiative of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, a Kansas City-based philanthropy that works in the fields of education and entrepreneurship. Kauffman and Alley worked together to rapidly design and launch a site to disseminate the particulars of the policy plan, support a targeted communications campaign in several states, and garner support from organizations who can join the Start Us Up Now coalition through the site.
Every year, the Georgetown University Health Policy Institute’s Center for Children and Families presents its research on the state of health care coverage for children in the United States. This year, the written report is being released along with the Children’s Health Care Report Card – an interactive data hub that allows users to explore the national top line information on the home page.

On July 1st, we activated the new Fortune.com, as well as two of their microsites, on new WordPress VIP Go hosting. While not much has visibly changed on the front end, the site has been rebuilt essentially from scratch, and will provide users and editors alike a faster, and cleaner, more reliable experience.
Prensa Libre, one of the most-circulated newspapers in Guatemala, recently approached Alley to assist with improving the experience of its editors when delivering the news to the nation. In the summer of 2018, a team headed south to Central America, held a kickoff with the Prensa Libre stakeholders, and soon began a migration off of a proprietary CMS system to WordPress (hosted by WordPress.com VIP). In January 2019, the new site was launched!
Alley’s State of Obesity project has recently published a special series — SNAP Stories, produced by Upworthy and StoryCorps — highlighting the positive impact of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) on the health of individuals and communities.
Earlier this year, the Kaiser Family Foundation approached Alley with a challenge: the foundation needed a way to display state-level data on a map, with an accompanying table, in a format that was easy to use and embeddable within posts across their WordPress site.
Does where you live affect how long you’ll live? That’s the question posed by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation in a newly launched data feature Alley designed and built for the foundation in September 2018. The interactive allows users, for the first time, to find life expectancy for all 73,000 Census tracts in the United States.
For the past few months, Alley has had the honor of working with the Online News Association on their new resources portal. Before today’s launch, ONA had their conference resources spread across individual conference sites, and it was often challenging for users to find what they needed within the incredible back catalog of ONA conference content.
