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.

Rhode Island College Campus Store – An Example of Bad Web Design for December 27, 2012

December 27th, 2012 3:03 am by Vincent Flanders

A bad website

Submitter’s comments: Unfortunately, I am submitting the recent redesign of my college’s campus store site. Every student in the college uses this site to find the necessary course material for each semester and, frankly, this site is an atrocious (example: small blue links on a red background)

Hopefully some outside opinion will make them consider another update!

Vincent Flanders’ comments: I’m hoping that the garish colors used here are the school colors. Even if they are the colors, you don’t have to use them on a bookstore. I don’t know what the relationship is between this school and RISD (Rhode Island School of Design—a Daily Sucker ten years ago), but somebody needs to help out this campus store.

A quick look at the home page found at least one typo (“locatedon”). Did I mention that the colors suck and the text doesn’t look like it’s styled with CSS (text rubs up next to box borders), but there are two stylesheets. Both of them suck too.
