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.

Agencia de Noticias Uruguaya – An Example of Bad Web Design for August 19, 2013

The Daily Sucker - an example of bad web design

Submitter’s comments: Pretty bad.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: Saying this website is pretty bad is like saying Penelope Cruz is a pretty woman. Neither comment does the subject justice.

You can’t tell by the screenshot, but the home page gets worse. Much worse. My first reaction was to call this just another Over-The-Top Website, but the site isn’t for a fringe organization, political party, conspiracy spouter, or espouses cultish spiritual / religious beliefs. At least I didn’t get that impression when Google translated the page.

Ironically, this wasn’t the page that was suggested. It was the Journalistic Awards page. If you look closely, this is where the original Internet graphics went to retire. Just seeing them brought back wonderful memories of 1995-96—the 2400 baud modems, Internet-in-a-Box software and pages taking minutes to load. Ah, the golden days before the Internet became obsessed with accumulating gold.

Oh, yeah. Parts of the page may be mildly NSFW, depending on the weirdness of your company.
