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

Vincent Flanders’ comments: Here’s a website that showed up in my RSS program. It was listed with other “remarkable” websites. My only remark was “Holy Mother of God, my iPad’s screen has gone haywire because I can’t read the tag line and the text.”

The home page looks better on my desktop PC. It’s “better” in the sense that it’s better to weigh 242 instead of 250 lbs. I can at least read the tag line, which makes me wonder: Was the site created on a desktop and never checked on the iPad? This is weird because the app is for the iPad. Huh? The website sucks on the very platform the app is supposed to run.

Where’s the logo? Is it that yellow triangle at the top? Also, why is the picture of the app all blurry? I would think the image would be crisper than a new $100 bill.

It’s not a HealthCare.gov fiasco, but there’s one similarity: did anybody ever look at the home page before launch?
