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.

Gwinn’s Island Museum – An Example of Bad Web Design for June 28, 2011

June 27th, 2011 1:01 am by Vincent Flanders

Submitter’s comments: Small museums should probably get special dispensation like artists because their websites are probably done by little old ladies. But I thought this one was particularly notable. First you click to “Enter.” Then you click to “Come on In.” (Is entering twice a sign of quality?) Then click yet again to see the exhibits

Vincent Flanders’ comments: Entering twice is a sign of bad web design. I haven’t seen a double Splash page in a while. The last one I remember is Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University. Personally, I prefer Gwinn’s two splash pages, but I’d prefer they didn’t use any at all.

There isn’t anything right about this site. Seriously, take a look at almost any other museum page. Take my home town museum’s website. Gee, does Gwinn’s look like this? Heck no. Actually, I don’t think I’ve ever been to the Indy website, but I like it a lot. It’s simple and you can read it.
