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: While I was researching training providers in the north-east of Scotland, I was recommended to check out a company called ID Inspire.  A quick Google search brought up the above website. After clicking the link on Google and it trying to open an application(?!), I decided to enter the URL manually.

I still have no idea if this is the company I am looking for, or what on earth this company actually does.  All I can say is ‘Mystery Meat Lorem Ipsum’…

Vincent Flanders’ comments: It’s back to school season here and in most parts of the world. Web design classes are in full swing and it’s the time when a young designer’s fancy turns to “How can I create a website that really, really sucks?” It doesn’t bother me that there isn’t an content other than Lorem Ipsum. What bothers me is the Mystery Meat Navigation. Why do you think your visitors want to guess how to get to your products / services / whatever you’re selling because I can’t tell.

The good news is there’s “still time to change the road you’re on.”
