We’re avid travelers at Alley, and airline miles are a common topic of conversation in our company Slack. Because we’re on the go so often, we’re big fans of Brian Kelly and the team at The Points Guy. That’s one reason why we were so excited to work with them and launch the new ThePointsGuy.com site.

Direct Relief is an award-winning nonprofit providing critical health care, supplies, and monetary support to people facing poverty and emergencies around the world. Alley and Direct Relief worked together to design a site that uses storytelling to convey the organization’s impact and increase donor engagement.

Alley has had the privilege of working with the Freer|Sackler Gallery to bring their collections online. Using access to The Museum System (TMS) databases, we built an open-source WordPress plugin to sync their collections into WordPress. These objects were then replicated in Elasticsearch, making them searchable via facets and other advanced options.

Alley’s ongoing relationship with CCF began when they hired us to redesign and replatform their website. Alley conducted a site audit and a series of user interviews to understand where users struggled most and how to prioritize site fixes. Since that initial relaunch, Alley continues to iterate on design and is now guiding CCF in bringing their research to life through data visualization.

Cool Green Science, part of The Nature Conservancy, needed a new design to showcase the innovative work of their scientists and to encourage discovery. We introduced larger photos and card-style elements that allow the content to flow smoothly on both desktop and mobile.

Alley built and maintains RevealNews.org, the digital presence of the Center for Investigative reporting. CIR relies on user contributions and grants, so much of our work is in service of their fundraising goals.
