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.

Ferti*lome – An Example of Bad Web Design for May 11, 2015

The Daily Sucker - an example of bad web design

Vincent Flanders’ comments: I hope to God Google slaps the Ferti*lome people in the face. Yes, their site fails to be mobile-friendly and it fails Google’s PageSpeed Insights test, but what’s worse is the navigation doesn’t work on an iPad. The iPad is bigger than any phone and many websites’ navigation looks fine on it, but Ferti*lome’s doesn’t.

Instead of giving you text commentary, I’m giving you a video. Haven’t done one in a while and I’m going to start doing them. I did this one on a Mac and I spent zero time on the video – didn’t use an external mike, didn’t try to make the wipe motions sync up with the screen, etc. One take. Because why spend more time making a video about crappy web design than the designers spent thinking about their navigation?

Oh, as the picture below demonstrates, the menu looks fine on my desktop machine; however, using side navigation is wrong. Who wants to strain their neck looking at a menu?

looks ok on the desktop
