I’m pleased to announce that the fantastic in house web development team over at the Philadelphia Museum of Art  has been awarded the prestigious Adobe site of the Day Award  for their brand new overhaul of their site. I’m especially pleased as my good friend Bill Ristine, webmaster for the museum, led the development effort with his team of Christian Lohr and Jaime Bramble along with help from the various museum department content managers. This is the second time in the last year that Bill and his team have been awarded Site of the Day, previously they were awarded Site of the Day for the Salvador Dali microsite  they created for the smash hit exhibit last year at the museum of Dalis work. The new site has some great examples on how to incorporate Flash based video, location maps, etc. into HTML content to enhance the experience and content of the site not only for ease of navigation but for increased functionality. The search functionality, floor plan mapping, and the entire HTML design with extensive use of CSS make the site so much more useable and provides backend central management with granular priviledge rights. It’s deep, clean, intuitive and just plain amazing for the amount of content the museum has – way to go Bill and Christian!
