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.

Digital Hollywood – An Example of Bad Web Design for October 23, 2012

October 23rd, 2012 4:04 am by Vincent Flanders

A bad website

Submitter’s comments: This is a site for a digital marketing conference. It is full of fail.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: While it’s correct to say this site is full of fail (massive fail), the site is far worse than that. The conference is about “Media Disruption – From Tablets and SmartPhones to Connected TVs” and there’s no Tablet or SmartPhone version of the website. Duh Freaking Duh.

Also, the web version is a joke that’s only 5 degrees of separation from Constellation 7. If you look at the home page on a large portrait monitor, you’ll see the page is more cramped than the people on Survivor. There are text contrast issues, the text is small, it’s difficult to tell where the links are located and when you find many of them they say “Click here.” The ultimate in non-helpfulness. Your links are supposed to tell you where you’ll end up. There’s a lot more fail, but it’s Tuesday and I don’t want to depress you. Check out my article Does My Web Site Suck? Checklist 1 for a lot more possible mistakes.

The fact that these important media people don’t protest this abusive design makes me wonder whether or not they have any aesthetic taste. Oops. I forgot. These are media people. Disclaimer. My father and sister once worked for McGraw-Hill (the people who, I believe, are putting on this conference). There goes my career in showbiz.
