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.

Thorn Ford Dental Laboratory – An Example of Bad Web Design for August 8, 2014

The Daily Sucker - an example of bad web design

Submitter’s comments: New dental laboratory website in my area. I think its horrible. What does websitethatsucks think?

Vincent Flanders’ comments: I think you found The Daily Sucker for August 8, 2014.

One of the problem with white links on a black background is what color do you make the :hover Selector. Like most websites, Thorm Ford screws it up worse than most. They blur out the links. Mouse over the down arrow and you’ll discover the sublinks are BLURRED OUT so you can’t read them! On my 1200px-wide monitor, you have to horizontally scroll.

I don’t remember ever seeing a mobile score of ZERO on Google’s Pagespeed Insights results before today’s gem. On this screenshot of the mobile version of their Services page, you can see how unreadable the page is.
