Winner of several design and web awards, this unique website has a special place in my heart:
- We were given free reign with design and implementation.
- I developed a basic CMS with wysiwyg in-place text editing, image cropping and other fun stuff, but no database is used… flat files make things so easy. And portable.
- GREATLY boosted the search engine rankings for Take the Cake, proving out some theories I had about making things easy for Google. The Google Analytics chart for traffic looked like a Tony Hawk quarter-pipe ramp… increasing search engine based traffic in a very short time.
- Worked perfectly on mobile (at least iPhone), right out of the box, minus the flash image gallery. And even IE cooperated with little arm-twisting. JQuery, once again, I profess my love.
- We were paid in cake.
