Mistake of web design

  • Bad Search
  • PDF files for online reading
  • Not changing colors of visited links
  • Non scan-able text
  • Fixed font size
  • Page titles with low search engine visibility
  • Advertisements
  • Violating design conventions
  • Opening new browsers
  • Not answering users questions

Mystery Meat navigation– Random navigation buttons that do not explain navigation items.

Examples of Bad navigation:


  • Have to roll over the squares to find out where to go.


George’s Township Civil Defense EMS

  • The picture is not high quality, the red is an ungodly color, and not readable at all.
  • There are links everywhere.

Maison Martin Margiela

  • Links looks like web pages and they cover the other links so it hard to click if it is behind other links.
  • Just an odd website
