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.

Stop teaching bad web design techniques – especially when they don’t work on mobile or tablets – Notes for September 11, 2013

The Daily Sucker - an example of bad web design

Vincent Flanders’ comments: School is back in session and lots of colleges, universities, and high schools are teaching web design. Lots of sites are teaching techniques to help you make your site current. Unfortunately, not everyone is teaching good web design techniques.

Today’s example fails Navigation Rule #1: If you have to explain your navigation, your navigation sucks. It also violates Navigation Rule #2 (Don’t force your visitors to scroll horizontally) and Navigation Rule #3 (Make sure your navigation works on the web and on mobile).

Yes, I know this horizontal parallax effect is clever. If the limitations of this technique were explained and a warning that “It’s not for everyone” were issued, I wouldn’t have a problem.
