FERN and Sinkswatch

FERN’s European Union advocacy work is focused on protecting forests and defending the rights of forest peoples. They approached us in 2008 with a familiar tale of a website that was not keeping pace with the growth and change in their activities. More of their content was being written in French as well as English and the volume and diversity of their publications was lost in a system that didn’t index it usefully.

DEA (formerly known as Development Education Association)

The DEA had managed a static site for several years when they approached the company for a solution to their changing publishing needs. Their growing databases of publications and contacts needed an online home which the static site simply couldn’t accomodate. After working together with DEA on a new architecture for the more sophisticated dynamic site, we developed this resource rich site of materials and services for the education sector. The databases of contacts and publications are fully searchable and easy to update.


the company rebuilt the Genewatch web site in 2006. The volume of new content flowing onto the old static site was making site management too labour intensive. The new site needed to make lighter work of content management, and improvements to the site structure. We developed it using ActionApps (AA), and used it to successfully pilot a new approach to dynamic navigational menus in AA – something which developers had been struggling with for some time.
