Squarespace for the American Legion
The American Legion is the nation’s largest wartime veterans organization devoted to serving vets, youth, and the community. We were honored to be approached by the Hollywood Post of the Legion to redesign its website in Squarespace, enhancing the functionality for interested parties and its valued members.
Fix8 Media Squarespace designers and developers listened to the needs of the Hollywood Post 43 team and upgraded its website by leaps and bounds. Built in the Squarespace Mercer template, the new Post 43 site features a parallax home page that very clearly conveys what is unique to this arm of the Legion.
A Hollywood institution founded in 1919 by WW1 veterans working in the motion picture industry, Post 43 members have included such well known names as Clark Gable, Charlton Heston, Mickey Rooney, Johnny Grant, Ronald Reagan, and more! The Post’s historic Memorial Clubhouse and the Hollywood Legion Theater are amazing venues that the group wanted to bring more attention to as potential locations for special events, filming locations, and more.
Working closely with the team, Fix8 Squarespace designers executed a robust online presence, complete with compelling calls to action, donation functionality for this nonprofit, an events calendar, special pages highlighting the venues, and a blog. An integration with Post 43’s membership software, Membershipworks.com, is custom styled it to fit the aesthetics of the new Squarespace site.
Current members and potential members alike will find the site well organized, easy to navigate, and visually attractive—ultimately resulting in a better communication tool for this impressive nonprofit!
