Worst Websites of 2012
These websites are not your usual mom-and-pop operations. Each of them has flaws that are, to the say the least, surprising.
In this day and age, asking people to register before they can use your site isn’t done. Not even on ecommerce sites.
If you’re promoting conferences about going digital and the importance of mobile and smartphones, you should have a mobile version of your website. Navigation, lack of contrast and infinite scrolling are other design items websites should know better than to use.
Jeez. In this day and age why are we forcing our visitors to register? Even the silly Fab website stopped doing that and you know that they’re on the cutting edge of trendy. Stop it, already.
2. Digital Hollywood
Submitter’s comments: This is a site for a digital marketing conference. It is full of fail.
3. Yeshivah of Flatbush
Submitter’s comments: Here’s some Jewish Mystery Meat Navigation (MMN) that’s definitely not kosher.
4. Rice University School of Architecture
5. iTunes Preview
Submitter’s comments: I can read it on my laptop, but not on my office monitor.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know. Everybody wants their site to be the next Pinterest so infinite scrolling and using Masonry with jQuery is all the rage. Well, Rage Against The (Trendy) Machine.
8. Marvis Contemporary Toothpaste
9. Mercia Tourist Board
Submitter’s comments: It is meant to be a site about history but it has all that unnecessary, jarring gumpf.
