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: At the following site, I wasn’t sure if they wanted to take me boating or cut my hair. Can you tell? And the background tiling looks even worse than the tiles on my kitchen floor.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: To truly appreciate the awfulness of the tiling, you have to go to the site (recommended) or look at a full-page screen capture (silly and a waste of 1.7Mb worth of bandwidth). I should note this screen capture was taken on a monitor that’s 1200 pixels wide. If your window is less than ~1067px, the tiling isn’t noticeable. Still.

There doesn’t seem to be enough contrast between the menu text at the top and the background. There are several tools web designers can use to determine the proper contrast. The article Easy Color Contrast Testing lists several.
