Mill River Park Collaborative Selects Dot Think to Nurture Brand & Media Strategies

Stamford, CT – With a goal of connecting more people to a natural refuge in the heart of downtown Stamford, Mill River Park Collaborative has retained Dot Think Design to complete a marketing audit and provide high-impact strategic support.

Mill River Park Collaborative (MRPC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that works hand-in-hand with the public and the City of Stamford to bring about the long-cherished community vision of a central park in the heart of downtown. Its mission is made possible through members and donors, who fund most of the park’s annual budget and infrastructure.

As a vibrant, evolving community space, Mill River Park preserves 12 acres of greenway around Mill River, with more expansion to come. Park amenities include a playground, slated to be rebuilt with a splash pad in 2018; the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Skating Center, now under construction; and the David & Marian Nissen Carousel, available for rentals and birthday parties. MRPC also partners with local schools to provide first-class education on nature and environmental stewardship, with the Whittingham Discovery Center slated to open soon for education and interactive exhibits.

Sharing a Story, Inspiring Action.

Similar to the cherry blossom festival celebrated each spring in Mill River Park, bright online developments are set to emerge from this partnership. After completing a brand and marketing audit, Dot Think will collaborate with MRPC to forge a fresh path in content marketing, email marketing, and social media strategy.

Dot Think’s mission is to help nonprofits engage and convert potential donors through a holistic process of discovery, design, compelling storytelling and seamless integration of technology.

“At Dot Think, we believe passionately in the power of people coming together to do good. Nonprofits are the heart of our communities – and we want to use our experience to help your organization make an impact. Whatever your needs, we can be there for you – with the best tools, data to match your goals and access to industry gurus.

LAUNCHED: Elephant Journal’s Holiday Gift Guide

Giving mindfully this season: Elephant Journal’s Ethical Holiday Gift Guide

Dot Think partnered with Elephant Journal to design and develop a Holiday Gift Guide that would present and organize ethical products from around the world. From Himalayan Serenity Salt Bowls to Mantra Leggings in Vector Print, the products make a statement and this is exactly where we want the focus – the products.

Tech Specs:

Created as a custom post type in the WordPress Content Management System (CMS), it is easy for the Elephant Journal team to add products, add text and upload images. Additionally, the gift guide for Elephant Journal was built with scalability in mind allowing the team to continue to use the technology past the holiday season. Finally, with 70% of Elephant Journal’s users on mobile, the site was designed mobile first and QA tested across devices to maximize reach for an international viewing audience with a wide range of devices.
