Bringing Bob Hope’s USO to 21st-century service members.

The USO’s web presence was stuck in the past, and they needed a modern brand and website to demonstrate that the USO has evolved to meet the needs of the Iraq and Afghanistan generation. Threespot provided an updated brand identity, website infrastructure, and donation processing system to help USO staff consistently and efficiently connect service members and veterans with programs in their communities.

Website Redesign

Threespot’s redesigned uso.org, including new brand elements, serves as the jumping off point for all of the messaging work we have done with them to bring service members’ needs front-and-center.

Infographic

The USO was struggling to explain its mission and its work, so we helped them visualize it. Threespot designed this infographic to tell the USO’s story in a rich but condensed format. This created a clear story of how donor support is reaching service members in their communities.

Information Architecture

Before Threespot created a unified information architecture for local USO branches, service members transferred to a new base were likely to find a local USO website that felt unfamiliar and hard to navigate. Threespot built an infrastructure makes it easy for affiliates without web developers to update their local pages while maintaining fidelity to the national USO brand.

Message Campaign

Connecting service members and civilians is a core part of the USO’s mission, but their website wasn’t taking advantage of the power of the internet to connect people across time and space. Threespot built a tool that allows USO’s supporters to send their personal thanks and support to active duty service members.
