No, we’re not talking about designing the latest, trendy, LEED certified apartment complex in Portland, we’re talking about NationBuilder. Last year we were introduced to a remarkable website platform called NationBuilder. Their team walked us through the product and asked if we’d be interested in designing and developing on their platform. So we came up with a design and chipped away at the dev between other projects. As of this week, we have completed our site and have officially become certified NationBuilder architects.

What it is

NationBuilder is a community organizing system (COS) that was launched in 2011. It includes a built in content management system, and all the tools you’ll ever need to handle consumer relationship management. As they put it,

“NationBuilder is the world’s first operating system for community. It combines your people database, website, and communication tools like email, text messaging, and social media all into one accessible and affordable software platform. Whether you’re an author, activist, small business owner, or politician, we provide the tools to build a community around whatever it is you were meant to do.”
