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.

Shorewood Lube & Service – An Example of Bad Web Design for June 12, 2012

A bad website

Submitter’s comments: Not only do they use a Flash header for navigation, the flash plays a different loud song on each page! Exactly HOW does that content relate to getting my car fixed?

Vincent Flanders’ comments: I suspect the music was part of a template —the music has that Flash template sound. Red, white and blue colors don’t inspire me, especially when they cause contrast problems like you see in the tag line. Flash is dead except in high-end games and video and this site is not one of those kinds of sites.

The music is annoying because there’s no way to turn it off and it repeats itself if you revisit a page. On the plus side, the site works on an iPhone—thanks to the text links at the bottom.
