The Daily Sucker - Current examples of bad web design

The Daily Sucker

Sites featured in articles like Worst Websites of 2010 often are redesigned, which explains why some sites mentioned in my articles don't match their current look. The Daily Sucker features current examples of bad web design which haven't been fixed (yet).

If you see a site that you think sucks, email the URL to me. No personal pages (personal pages are supposed to reflect the individual's personality and artistic freedom) or web site designers (it would look like a conflict of interest), or others of their ilk.

If I think there's some merit to your selection, I may post it along with some commentary. If you know of a site that qualifies, let me know.

Toronto Research Chemicals – Example of Bad Web Design for April 11, 2011

April 11th, 2011 2:02 am by Vincent Flanders

Submitter’s comments: This is the home page of a company that sells mostly esoteric chemicals to the research community. Personally, I think the Flash animation is an 8/10 on the Suckometer.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: That’s why I love my readers. I’d also give it an 8 on the Suckometer. If you just let the FlashSplash page finish, you’ll get a mission-statement sounding pile of platitudes: “Bringing You Products For Innovative Research.” The Flash animation of a chemical ring is also a waste of bandwidth and the color combinations are ugly. The text on the “About Us” page is obscured by a picture of some buildings or something.

To paraphrase the great American philosopher Carlos Irwin Estévez: “Duh. Losing.”
