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.

Sony – Bad Web Design Examples for October 20, 2011

October 19th, 2011 10:10 pm by Vincent Flanders

this site is badly designed

Submitter’s comments: I would love to see Sony castigated on your site. If you look at the EX Series Earbuds page, you’ll see they’re using gray on white text.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: I don’t think I’ll castigate them, I’ll just severely criticize them or inflict severe punishment on them <grin>.

WTF is going on? It’s bad enough sites are using #666 (Satan’s CSS) for their text, but Sony is using #999 — which is 50% more of Satan’s CSS. If they don’t want us to read something, don’t use words. In Sony’s case, they’re hiding marketing BS, which is redundant.

They use #666 in their description of the product — ” Destined to become your favorite accessory…” Let me tell you something from many years of experience. If a pair of earphones is your favorite accessory, you lead a very, very sad life.

Heck, by comparison, their footer is easy to read. Normally, that’s where you can legitimately use #666 or 999.
