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.

Cardiff Contemporary – An Example of Bad Web Design for November 19, 2012

November 18th, 2012 10:10 pm by Vincent Flanders

A bad website

Submitter’s comments: I learned about the site below in a local council publication as a ‘portal’ to what’s happening in Cardiff. So, I went to visit it.

This site is a complete turn-off right at the home page. It is so poor, starting with Mystery Meat Navigation (MMN), that I didn’t even bother delving any deeper.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: I’m surprised by the MMN. Normally, when you click one of the mystery links, you’re taken to a complex page—often Flash-based. Nope. You’re taken to a strictly text-based page. Huh? Why couldn’t Cardiff Contemporary use a simple menu for navigation? Of images that were labeled?

Oh, a really serious mistake that’s uncalled for has to do with clicking the logo on the subpages. It takes back to the Mystery Meat home page—where you have to mouse over the “X’s” once again.
