What We Do

Close

Website Design Phase

The first step is to design your website. We'll start a kickoff meeting to understand your requirements. Once we're happy we understand your needs we'll construct a navigation map, come up with a colour scheme and start the outline wireframes.

We then combine these three concepts into a design for the home page and iterate this until you are happy with the look and feel. Clients going for the advanced design package will receive up to 3 concept home page designs.

In many websites, we'll also flesh out the inner pages so you can see what these pages will look like. These are based on the approved home page design in terms of style.

We can also do multi-platform designs for mobile and tablet according to clients requirements.

Website Development

Once you are happy with the designs, we move on to the development phase. During that stage of the build, we will construct the website templates which includes the HTML page layouts, CSS styling, and JQuery interactive elements.

We also integrate the site with the Content Management System during this phase and complete the media query coding needed for optimal viewing on mobiles and tablets.

The final stage is for accessibility. We check all code for validation, and ensure that the site is compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. Ilikecake have a proven track record in creating and designing accessible websites since 2006. Our websites are compliant with WCAG 2.0 AA requirements.

Accessibility Audits

In a structured format, we regularly undertake accessibility audits for our clients and, in the past, have advised website tenderers on their accessibility requirements. All state funded organisations are required to have an accessible website. We have recently worked with The Food Safety Authority of Ireland, Irish Water, and Comreg, amongst others, to advise them of their website compliance with current Web Content Acccessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0).

Advantages of an accessible website includes increased ease of access for many people, which can positively affect your bottom line. These people could be disabled, aged, non-native language speakers, or simply novice users.

A nice side-effect is that additional mark up and content used to make a site more accessible also has knock-on SEO benefits.

Accessibility Training

Accessibility training is normally carried out once a website audit has been undertaken. This helps management, staff, content managers, designers & developers to understand the issues surrounding accessible versus non-accessible website content.

We can advise on and deliver specific training required by content managers.

We can work with your existing website maintenance organisation to advise on changes needed to website templates.

We can work through your existing PDF generation processes to find the best way for your organisation to generate accessible PDFs quickly and efficiently going forward.

Usability Testing

Ilikecake can undertake a range of accessibility testing on your site to ensure that it is efficient and understandable by your target audience. This can include user testing using Think Aloud Protocol with members of your target audience. We can also undertake cognitive walkthroughs of systems or tools on your website to uncover any hidden issues or hindrances to users. Finally we can undertake a heuristic evaluation of website systems or tools to expose any isssues of non-compliance with standard heuristics, including

  • Familiarity
  • Consistency
  • Clarity of Elements
  • Appropriate Language
  • Natural and Logical Ordering of Information
  • User Control and Freedom
  • Navigational Support
  • Recognition Rather than Recall
  • Timely Feedback
  • Error Prevention and Recovery
  • Efficiency
  • Meets User Requirements
  • Aesthetics

Bespoke Products

Over the past number of years, many of our clients have asked Ilikecake to create additional bepoke products for their organisations. Most of these systems are integrated into their front end website and/or Content Management System.

These products include research databases for third level institutions and disability organisations, application and interview allocation systems for colleges, course and room booking management systems, HIQA compliant complaints management systems, job seekers databases and many more.

Content Management

Ilikecake's Content Management System, CakePress, can be integrated with your site, and customised to suit your organisation's requirements.

CakePress has the following features

  • the addition of unlimited amounts of pages
  • uploading and linking of PDF, word and other file types
  • photos can be upload, edited and added to pages and galleries
  • easy integration of videos from both Youtube and Vimeo
  • page tagging with keywords
  • featured and banner images
  • integration of any additional modules into a one-stop-shop for the site

CakePress requires very little or no training however, should training be required, Ilikecake can provide training in your own office. Over the phone support will also be available following this.

This content management system is capable of outputting code which is compliant with the W3C WAI WCAG 2.0 Accessibility Guidelines.

Website Maintenance

To ensure that your new website is kept up to date and performing for you, a maintenance support package can be put in place. This time may be used to advise on CMS & database issues, make modifications to the site, search engine optimisation etc as required by your organisation.

Support time can also be used to ensure the accessibility of the website even where a CMS is in place. Many of our clients use the CMS for routine updates and use the maintenance hours for larger or more complicated content updates.

The majority of updates are undertaken within 24 to 48 hours depending on the complexity. In many cases the updates are undertaken within a few hours.

Your organisation will receive maintenance statements from the Ilikecake Project Management System twice a year detailing all services carried out on the site. This details each job with a job reference number and time stamps of when the job was undertaken. Any time not used by your organisation within a calendar year can be carried forward.

Intranets & Extranets

Organisations often require a place to share documents a facilitate discussion amongst staff or organisation members.

We can create a password protected, custom designed Intranet or Extranet for your organisation which can contain a secure document repository.

There is also the option to add an internal discussion forum here to facilitate internal communication among staff, volunteers, board members, or other members of your organisation.

Multi Language
Close

Multi Language

Ilikecake can work with websites in multiple, foreign languages. Several of our clients are involved in European based projects which require multi-language support. We have a version of our CMS which can be modified to support up to 6 languages. The website allows users to navigate seamlessly between languages, via either a drop down language selection tool, or flag icons.

To date, languages we have worked with include

  • English
  • French
  • German
  • Greek
  • Irish
  • Italian
  • Lithuanian
  • Polish
  • Slovenian
  • Spanish
  • Turkish

Accessible PDFs

Ilikecake are experienced in upgrading legacy PDFs to be accessible. We can upgrade PDF files made in Adobe Acrobat, from Microsoft Word and via Adobe Illustrator or InDesign.

For each PDF file accessibility upgrade we

  • Add correct and relevant tags to each file
  • Check and amend the reading order of the file contents
  • Add titles
  • Add authors
  • Add the language of the content
  • And finally test with several accessibility PDF checkers

We can also work through your existing PDF generation processes to find the best way for your organisation to generate accessible PDFs quickly and efficiently going forward.

Accessibility Upgrades

It may be possible to upgrade your existing website templates and content to compliance with WCAG 2.0. Ilikecake can assess your website either during a detailed audit, or in an overview format, and advise on whether an accessibility upgrade is possible or even desirable.

If it is possible to upgrade the site without major visual changes, Ilikecake is happy to quote for this work on a per site basis. Sites undergoing accessibility upgrades will have the same level of compliance as a site generated by Ilikecake from scratch.

In some cases, sites are too far from compliance, so that it would actually be cheaper to have a new site constructed. In these cases Ilikecake can quote you on our standard Website Design & Development process.
