Web Application: Take the Cake

Winner of several design and web awards, this unique website has a special place in my heart:

  1. We were given free reign with design and implementation.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. We were paid in cake.
