For me the thrill of web design is creating a dynamic, visual representation of someone's idea, and watching the response come flooding in.
Take 'Raising the Cakes' for instance. A local cake maker, who puts together truly awesome cakes in her spare time, didn't have a large budget at all but wanted a bit of a presence online to point potential customers to.
I thought rather than have a boring profile page, why not create a one page website that actually resembled a cake box, include a few images, concise text info, and a contact form, and launch it online.
The result is they are now on page one of Google for North Somerset Cakes owing to the SEO employed, and are receiving enquiries by the box-load!
