At Logic Department, we help non-profits that have too many webpages or too many websites.

We thrive when faced with complex and messy content problems that most people don’t know how to even begin to tackle.

We are Brooklyn-based and women-owned.

Specializing in non-profits

We’ve worked with dozens of nonprofits on large, complex projects. As a result, we understand how these overwhelming situations came to be (i.e. how websites can multiply due to grants, partnerships, and initiatives) and the challenges nonprofits face when it comes to digital work (politics, processes, etc.) We’re here to unwind the intricacies and find success within those constraints.

Our work isn’t pro bono, but it’s also not junior level. Our experts work on every project so you get our best work at all times, not the left-over time in our timesheets. 

Kind, not condescending

We realize most of your day isn’t spent staring at your website or content inventory spreadsheets. As experts in the more complex information structures of the internet (linked data, taxonomy, metadata, etc.), we love helping you learn along the way, but will never talk down to you or make you feel dumb. 

We help simplify overwhelming, complex problems into simple terms and manageable summaries, so even those within the organization that are furthest from the digital strategy can understand them.

Independent and external

Rather than adding stress and pushing internal bandwidth, we take ownership of the project from beginning to end. We even manage internal teams or contractors through the complex work of updating and moving content across sites so you don’t have yet another thing on your plate. 

But perhaps our best feature? We don’t have our own agenda – our work and recommendations are fully focused on your organization’s goals and mission.

 

Substance, not surface

Unlike “full-service” agencies, where important structural work is often glossed over in favor of getting to the “sexier” visual design work, we are singular in our expertise. We focus on the essential organizational work that truly improves your users’ experience and saves tons of staff time. 

Our process will have your websites actually working better, not just looking better.

Our Team

Sam Raddatz

Founder and CEO

With a background in project management, qualitative sociology and holding a Master’s degree in Information and Library Science, Sam tackles any challenge in the most organized and transparent way possible.

An active part of the international IA community, Sam was elected to Information Architecture Institute’s board as Director of Events and Programming where she oversaw the coordination of World Information Architecture Day.

“I’m a strong believer that in daily life, there are design solutions that can make almost every interaction less frustrating – from opening a door to browsing a website. So I love working on projects that reduce stress for both users and clients.”

Clair Rock

Information Architect

Clair has a deep interest in complex stories and how to make those stories accessible. They have built on a knowledge of filmmaking and a Masters of Science in Information Experience Design to apply those skills to information architecture. Clair’s passion is seeing data come together into cohesive solutions – turning a complex tangle into something organized.

“I love working in information architecture because of the joy that comes from helping people. They might have a problem and don’t know how to fix it – I can come in with my experience and understanding and help them solve the issues they’re dealing with.”
