The Capitol Post is a wonderful non-profit organization whose mission is to serve as the platform for military veterans and spouses growing sustainable and scalable businesses or transitioning into new careers. It serves as the home to Bunker Labs DC, an accelerator for high-growth startups. As Ironistic partnered with The Capitol Post on this project, we determined that veterans must not only find a strong collection of resources and expert assistance, but they must also garner a sense of community – one where they can rely on Capitol Post and on each other as they start and grow their businesses and careers.
The new Capitol Post website was custom designed and developed to meet the organization’s growing needs and reinforce the evolving brand. The website was built on the WordPress CMS, allowing the Capitol Post team to easily manage their content and resources as needed. For this project, we wanted to present a professional and innovative design, with a hint of patriotism and service orientation. We also wanted to present a compelling story on WHY veterans should engage with Capitol Post as they start down their entrepreneurial path.
This year, Ironistic and Hudson Studio have taken over the reigns to co-sponsor and organize the annual Run! Geek! Run! 5k, which was founded in 2008 and organized for the past eight years by W2 Communications. The race will be held on September 25, 2016 at the Potomac Yard area in Alexandria, VA. All proceeds from the 2016 Run! Geek! Run! race will go directly to The Capitol Post!
