On November 25, 2002, President Bush signed the Homeland Security Act of 2002 into law, which established the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) at the Cabinet level. DHS turned to Deloitte for help in building and integrating a Web site. In turn, Deloitte called upon Redmon to collaborate on the design aspects of the project. Working in close collaboration with Deloitte and DHS, Redmon designed and built interface treatments and page layouts consistent with the goals of the new department. With a very tight schedule in place, Redmons team of designers played an integral part in delivering the Web site in time for Secretary Ridges unveiling in early 2003.
The greatest challenge was the tight one-month schedule. DHS wanted an immediate presence on the Web and wanted the site to be integrated with its enterprise foundation. DHS presented the Deloitte/Redmon team with vast databases of information, which had to be structured, organized and delivered to an international audience through a conservatively representative and intuitive interface. Working in tandem with Deloittes development team, Redmon leveraged its extensive design experience and capabilities with dynamic Web-based languages to produce a set of designs that would properly and adequately convey the departments message of strength, stability, and security.
