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.

Leoneck Hotel – An Example of Bad Web Design For August 14, 2012

A bad website

Submitter’s comments: Needs more cowbell!

Vincent Flanders’ comments: I thought the person submitting this site was joking about the cowbells. No. The site uses the late, not-so-great Flash as a design tool. They have a bare-bones —and I mean bare-bones —mobile version which is more effective because it just gives you the room rates and a reservation page. However, if you click on the hotel image, it takes you to the German language page.

The animated cow that follows your cursor on the Flash site is annoying —and amateurish. The "follow the arrows" navigation is a poor choice. Mousing over some of the links activates the cowbell sound. Seriously.

On the other hand, I really like the pastel coloring and the impressionistic look of the pages.
