A website experience built to engage

POAM is a full-service labor organization that protects and provides its members with improved communication and news, off the clock.

Breaking News

When we first began our partnership with POAM in 2002, their website was simple and featured to-the-point information about the union. They envisioned bigger goals of what their website could be for their members. With the need to connect with their growing membership, we were tasked with rebuilding their website. 

From a simple brochure website to the latest rebuild; this law enforcement union now has a robust, fully-fledged news source housing information, important updates, and contact forms essential to members.

 We’ve been fortunate enough to redesign and update their website four times to keep up with the trends and evolution of its members. As technology evolves, so should a website, and our relationship has grown steadily as well.

Defining the Look

Since this rebuild aimed to modernize the site, we began migrating the necessary site content into a fresh design. For content with missing styles or shortcodes, we implemented improved layouts with our user-friendly content editor so that the client could make further edits. 

The build was primarily inspired by contemporary news sites that offer essential information in a condensed space. We achieved this on the POAM build by utilizing a sidebar that includes a featured Hot Issue and other relevant posts. 

We ensured the homepage design adequately explained the product’s positives, highlighting a walkthrough of the software’s benefits to ensure a clear understanding as the user scrolls through the site.
