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.

The Daily Sucker - an example of bad web design

Submitter’s comments: With most websites on WPTS at least I have some idea of what the site is about. But I have absolutely no idea what’s going on here. It’s not even Mystery Meat Navigation, since there’s no meat and no navigation!

The mystery doesn’t end on this page. If you click on the small link at the bottom of the page (called “V2”), it takes you to another mysterious page. Clicking on 02 opens another page, and here…well…judge for yourself.

All I can conclude is that in the wrong hands, Flash is a very dangerous tool.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: It’s a WTF Website. As in “What the Heck am I doing at this Website.” I sure hope it isn’t a portfolio website. If it’s an art website, it fails because there’s no way to tell it’s an art website. Heck, it’s a massive fail because I can’t tell what kind of a website it is.

The Daily Sucker - an example of bad web design

Submitter’s comments: I am shocked, shocked to find web site suck here: moving banner with flashing and blinking links, animated gifs, multicolored “new” signs, and longish front page in need of organization and a navigation scheme.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: I’m confused. I thought electric cars are the future. If they’re the future, the website should be “futuristic”—whatever the heck that means. It certainly isn’t a flat, responsive website. It’s about as sucky as it gets. OK. OK. It’s nowhere near as bad as any of the sites listed in Worst Websites of 2012: Beyond The Pale. I was just trying to make a point.

Personally, I’m absolutely stunned by the logo. Oh, heck. I’m absolutely stunned by the whole site.
