Arab Gulf States Institute in Washington

The Arab Gulf States Institute in Washington is an “independent, nonprofit institution dedicated to providing expert research and analysis of the social, economic, and political dimensions of the Gulf Arab states and how they impact domestic and foreign policy.” In 2018, they asked Alley to redesign their site and improve the editorial experience.

The site requires more than just typical content tools, but the ability to curate in multiple ways, maintain accessible multilingual content – both left-to-right and right-to-left languages, and also let the AGSIW staff build their own modules and pages quickly and easily. We took the site from an antiquated WordPress template into the powerhouse of content it is today.

CPR is on a mission to provide its state with trustworthy, intelligent, and local news coverage at a time when regional newsrooms are shrinking. To meet their goal, CPR required an experienced partner who could guide them from requirements gathering all the way through design, development, content migration, and, ultimately, a new live site. Alley answered the call with a newly designed headless site with a persistent audio player, totally new user flow, and more.
