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.

Burberry Festive – Example of Bad Web Design for January 2, 2012

Submitter’s comments: This one page seemed to take its sweet time loading in the 97-99% range while this god-awful music played and never ceased to attack my ears. Also, there is a bit of Mystery Meat Navigation (MMN) going on with the unlabeled bags. Ironically, though this is the “festive” collection, the screen is awfully dark.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: Not sure why the page hangs starting around the 97% mark. It takes a long time to get there and, frankly, I’m bored and would normally leave. I notice the MMN occurs both in the left navigation and in the middle. The left-side navigation is hard-to-read because someone doesn’t appreciate contrast.

While exploring the site, I discovered the Men’s Business Accessories page. More importantly, I discovered the Textured Leather Crossboy Briefcase. While the bag is gorgeous, the price isn’t at £795.

Burberry is your typical high-end fashion/designer site.
