Submitter’s comments: First of all, FLASH!!!! It’s everywhere, the entire site is built in Flash with animations, flashing, auto playing background audio and not to mention that the intro audio file on the splash page sounds like I’m going to see Ron Jeremy appear on the screen any moment.
Vincent Flanders’ comments: I don’t think I want to see Flash or Ron Jeremy appear on the screen. I certainly don’t want Ron Jeremy to appear in a Flash video.
I swear I’ve used this site before , but I can’t find any record of its existence. I suspect there’s some sort of horrible Flash template out there that reminds me of this site. There is nothing on this website that requires Flash. Why use it?
Industrial Painter is a classic example of Mistake #6 from Biggest Mistakes in Web Design 1995-2015 — “Have you ever seen another web site? Really? Doesn’t look like it.“ I wanted to find out if every painting company looked like today’s site. I conducted a search using the term “military painting” (which Industrial Painter also performs) and clicked on the first link I found, which was for Breton Industries. While the site won’t win many awards, it’s infinitely better than today’s sucker.
