1 Youth Duo

8.4
We have SOULutions
Worst websites in the world: Youth Duo

Jamie Lin, self proclaimed Feng Shui expert, has got lots of ugly websites, but the crown jewel in her business empire is youthduo.com, a more recent website. Youthduo.com is an extremely ugly website that offers 'Age-Reversing SkinCARE solutions'. You have to see it to believe it. Apparently you have to take some magical drops and wear a 'Turkey NeckLESS'. There is an affiliate commission to be won if you find other poor souls that enter this program.

Check out the fascinating rotating banner on the homepage and be prepared to feel a little sick.

181 likes on Facebook. Business is booming. But unfortunately my gut feeling tells me Jamie is able to make a living with only a handful of clients.

2 Freizeitpark Herne

8.4
some really ugly flash
From Germany
Bad flash web design: Freizeitparkherne.de

A website for a leisure time park in Germany. It seems they don't know it yet in Germany, but flash is dead. Killed by Steve Jobs and one of a few things he did right I guess. So, if you look at this some with some kind of Apple device you won't see anything. Even with other devices, chances are you won't see a thing. For those of us not speaking German: to get past the horrible intro you've got to click on 'Intro Überspringen'.

Some surfing suggestions: click on 'miniauto' to hear the horn of a car and to see a flying seagull which isn't that interested in this website. The coolest effect is situated under 'Rutsche'. The seagull at the Karussel seems to be a bit more interested in the site, although she's got a bit of a puzzled look.

3 Tru-Tech: Roofing and Waterproofing Professionals

7.8
This site requires the Flash 4 plug-in
Flash is dead: Tru-Tech

Website from Tru-Tech: Roofing and Waterproofing Professionals from Modesto, California. Wow, what an awful melody on entering the site and some impressive lightening going on. This alone deserves an extra two points. And why does this site open in a popup? Some nice big and juicy rain drops after the lightening. Makes me wonder: do we have adequate roofing and waterproofing at home? Argh, the sound effects when you click on a button. It's like someone made this site with the explicit purpose of harassing people. This is some bad, bad flash right there.

Flash is dead but some of these old sites remain alive and kicking.

4 Dogetech Group

7.8
Best views in 1024 x 768 px
From Taiwan
Bad flash web design Dogetech

Dogetech Group is a company in Taiwan that manufactures Textile Machines. And they have a terrible flash website. Really awful. This website is a real find. As bad websites go, this is on a level of its own. Some horrible flash design. The about page is a horrible mess and completely unreadable. The site is too small for todays screen sizes and is butt ugly.

But the real winner on this site is the flash intro. If you can, you really should enable flash on this site and listen to the intro music. Put it really loud to let it immerse you completely. But watch out if you're an epileptic, the flashing lights could give you a seizure. No, really, watch out.

5 Industrial Painter

7.6
let us paint ourselves

Who was it that said that flash was dead? Not Industrialpainter.com. When you thought you had seen all there is about flash intro's this website gives you even a bit more.

The time when every website had an intro like this is far behind us, but at Industrial painter even the flash intro has its own flash intro. Too bad for the designer of this website nobody wants a flash site anymore. Because he is a real flash wizard. The hover effect on the first 'ENTER' button is a real beauty.

6 Sketch London

6.3
Clean artwork is good artwork
most annoying websites - Sketch London

Sketch is a London based luxury resort of some kind, combining restaurants, art exhibits, music, ... A “lieu” or destination place, as they say on the website. Lieu, that sounds classy. Some of the elements of bad web design on this site are, among others, the use of flash, the use of frames when there is absolutely no reason to do so (is there ever?), unnecessary animation (top left). Nobody is impressed by animation anymore, really, trust me. The left frame breaks the layout of the site (which is a bit plain in itself) by producing a scrollbar on some of the pages. Any scrollbar on page to me is a design flaw and a sign of amateurism. And please, show the 'we use cookies' message only once.

If there was an award for the most annoying website, this would be a serious contender. The sound playing while the interesting (read: also very annoying) flash animation plays on the homepage is just plain awful. Visit the site and enjoy the music.

7 NihTEM Solutions Nigeria

6.1
Need help?
From Nigeria

NihTEM is a web design firm in Lagos, Nigeria with a website that features one of the strangest image headers I have ever seen. On the right you can see something that is a combination of an apple and a light bulb. And for some reason or other this apple bulb thing is sweating from time to time. Also, a strange bee is circling this apple, and once in a while, some kind of ray is transmitted to this monstrosity. Meanwhile, on the left, some white guy is sitting on a chair with his arms held open. Maybe this imagery means something in Nigeria but to me it's an ugly and somewhat upsetting mystery. Strange, strange.

Need help? Yes, I need a new flash banner for my site. The old one seems to be upsetting my visitors.

8 Phil Smith Car Sales

6.0
What would you rather be driving?
Bad flash web design Phil Smith

At Philsmithcarsales.com from Massachusetts they certainly like their golf balls. And they like flash. And they like to combine the two into something that can only be described as an ugly flash site from hell. It seems they predominantly sell cars and maybe the occasional golf cart, so why the use of the irritatingly rotating golf ball in the navigation, nice sound effect included. People looking to buy a car may question the sanity of Phil Smith and his associates. Not a smart move.

Cruising cars in a flash animation. Cool and attractive, for sure, if you are able to see it. Lots of visitors wont. Conversion is the name of the game, so you don't want to lose any customers, not one if you can prevent it. That means no flash, never and nowhere.

9 Elévage de Yorkshire

5.8
A bit too lovely to be healthy
From France

A site from a French Yorkshire kennel. The intro page (in Flash) of the cute little dogs is almost too cute to be true. In fact, it's so cute that it almost becomes ugly at the same time. Not a very good idea to put the 'Enter' button for this page below the fold, but ok. The page after the intro page really is too cute to be bearable. You have the oh so cute dogs again, but on top of that you get some equally adorable flowers. Roses, of course, and a psychedelic background of the most beautiful colors imaginable.

After that page after page with custom psychedelic background motive, and, if you're lucky as a visitor, the finest background melodies one can imagine. A real feast for the eyes and ears. There is one thing you can say about the woman that made this site: she does love her Yorkshire dogs. And she loves paint effects in Photoshop. And she loves heavenly music (with some guitar added). And she thinks dogs is like people. And this above all else: she's a sucker for kitsch. All kinds of wondrous pages await a visitor of this website.

10 Navigarefacile.it

5.3
easily browse the internet
From Italy
Ugliest web directory Italy

Navigarefacile.it has got to be one of the ugliest web directories on the internet. The funny thing is that lots of websites in this directory seem to be made by the same web professionals and that most of them could be included on Ugliest Site In The World. A real gateway to ugly Italian websites this directory. All websites with virtually no content and an ugly design. And Google ads, of course.

I wonder if the people behind this plethora of websites actually earn something with all this work. Could be they are in the business of flipping domain names. A domain name with some age to it is more valuable. That could be it.
