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.

spd-engenhahn – Example of Bad Web Design for November 3, 2011

November 2nd, 2011 8:08 pm by Vincent Flanders

this site is badly designed

Submitter’s comments: This one really sucks…It’s from a small town’s (Engenhahn) local committee of one of Germany’s major parties (Social Democrats, SPD). Doesn’t even feature the party’s logo or colors, though, but that might actually be a rather good idea…

Vincent Flanders’ comments: In this day and age, you often don’t want people to know your party affiliation. The only people who can look at the thumbnail and say, “Verdammt, das ist glatt (Damn, this is smooth)” are the people who authorized the site. Everyone else sees it for the sucker it is. Speaking of “Verdammt, das ist glatt,” I came up with this phrase using Google Translate. Google also came up with “Marius White – a member of parliament to touch.” Somehow, I don’t think this is the correct translation.

I love the repeating background, the home page TITLE tag of “home” and the multi-colored text.
