10 Years of Strength
The goal was to document ten years of progress in the Army since September 11, 2001. There's a timeline for every year, and the site highlights six key "Pillars of Strength."
What I Did
This was the first project I led as Army.mil's Creative Director. I designed the site and managed its development, which was done primarily by William Deacon. We decided to use Metafizzy's wonderful Isotope for the timeline, a great suggestion from John Heiner who helped get the project started.
What I Learned
Get a realistic expectation of what content you'll be getting before you've finished a design, and make sure the design is flexible just in case. Be ready and willing to compromise if need be.
