International Center for Integrative Studies (ICIS) is a global community of thought leaders from all walks of life dedicated to developing solutions to the most pressing problems facing our world today. ICIS was founded in 1962 by Erling A. Thunberg to help address the humanitarian concerns many scholars and scientists had at the end of the 1950s regarding the future.

In 2003 I had created a basic HTML website for a subsidiary of ICIS called RiverTides, an organization providing educational support to local nonprofits representing a wide variety of social causes. Three years later (after answerYES Consulting was established) I was asked to create a new website and private forum for ICIS, folding RiverTides into this new site architecture. It was decided the site would be builtĀ under the open-source content management system Drupal, designing a custom theme that reflected a more contemporary image of the organization.
