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.

P & A Feed and Pet – Example of Bad Web Design for July 5, 2011

July 5th, 2011 4:04 am by Vincent Flanders

Submitter’s comments: I was looking around for some pet supply stores in my area and stumbled on this beauty.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: It starts off poorly and gets worse. You have the logo on a repeating background. Then you have a strange orange bar going down the left side, which is supposed to be the background. It would have been better to have a similar bar on the right, which would have centered the middle content section.

As you move down you have white text on a black background. It’s not horrible. Then you get to the gold background and all sorts of text problems–text in all caps, multicolored text on the same line, etc. The links are graphics, but not every graphic is a link. A couple of the links go to betteranimals.com–I’m not sure why–but I couldn’t get the site to load because their server timed out. As far as I can tell, it’s a one-page site.
