FarmersAlmanacTV.com Receives Design Recognition Web Site Featured on TheBestDesigns.com
October 02, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsSAVANNAH, Ga., The Best Designs, a web site that features the best designed sites from all over the world, has included FarmersAlmanacTV.com in its line-up for the best designed web sites on the web today.
The Best Designs only selects those sites “designed with high standards, a well-planned audience focus, usability and originality” to feature on its web site, TheBestDesigns.com. It only selects 15% of the sites submitted for consideration, according to its web site.
“The Farmers’ Almanac TV site has all those components and more,” said Lisa Delaney, vice president of Philadelphia-based Power Design, which recently redesigned FarmersAlmanacTV.com and submitted it to The Best Designs.
FarmersAlmanacTV.com was originally launched a year ago to promote Farmers’ Almanac TVtm, a magazine-style show that is inspired by the trusted and treasured Farmers’ Almanactm. The site contained primarily videos run on the public television show.
But, based on the show’s national success, the Farmers’ Almanac TV team decided to redesign the site to include additional entertaining and informative content that both its rural and urban audiences craved. It features:
• A-10-day weather forecast that channels live data from across the country into a user friendly, visually rich flash interface
• An opportunity for registered “Farmhands” to submit photos, videos and tips to The Fridge, Farmers' Almanac TV's unique user-generated environment. Photos and tips from The Fridge are often featured on the television show
• Daily wit & wisdoms from the Farmers’ Almanac
• Recipes from the Farmers’ Almanac and other sources
• Video and text stories about weather, gardening, cooking, natural cures, rural life and more
In the future, the Farmers’ Almanac TV web site will also include astronomy and weather podcasts, produced by the publishers and editors of the Farmers’ Almanac.
“We are very excited that The Best Designs is featuring our web site,” said Bill Chisholm, CEO of Farmers’ Almanac TV. “Our goal is to provide well-organized, easy-to-read and relevant information to our web site visitors, and this recognition confirms that we have done that.”
