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.

iQuim – An Example of Bad Web Design for March 16, 2016

The Daily Sucker - an example of bad web design

Submitters’ comments: Either familiarity with somewhat archaic Eighteenth Century English alerted me to this and no one with the institution caught it or “Iquim” is more appropriate for a soon-to-be-released Apple device and app likely to set unbelievable sales records.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: I’ll actually get in line for that product. Yes, the name’s bad but the site is socially acceptable except it fails on Google’s mobile test and PageSpeed Insights (9/100). Mobile is pretty much where all the activity is these days.

The real fail is the lack of contrast in the submenus. Light gray text on a black background is hard to read. If your visitors can’t read it, they’ll leave it.
