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.

Tradewise 64 – An Example of Bad Web Design for June 16, 2015

The Daily Sucker - an example of bad web design

Submitters’ comments: A nauseous slideshow of giant images – my favourite is the filthy hand grabbing the chess piece.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: My major confusion was over trying to figure out what the page was about. Once I understood it was about auto insurance for chess players, it all made sense – except for the need for the background images. They don’t show up on iPad or iPhone version – just the desktop. Lose them. I also don’t understand the controls at the bottom right of the screen. The sound icon seems to have no function.

The iPhone version seems to be acceptable. I’d like it if the tagline about being the insurer of the chess federation were more readable.
