Bad Advertising

Category: PersonalChrisM @ 6:57 pm

As my regular readers will know, I am not normally someone who slams another person’s website. However, as I was doing some research regarding the upcoming Google PR update, I found someone promoting their Web Design skills.
When I checked the site, I thought it was a joke at first. Although I can in no way claim to have good design skills myself, I do not try and sell these non-existant skills to others.
Seriously, take a look, replace the word DASH with the symbol – , and change the word DOT to a .


(it looks so bad, I do not want to link to it properly from this site!)

OK, so you’ve looked. Is it just me, or do all the pages just scream out DO NOT EMPLOY ME ?
The colour scheme is gaudy. I considered if it was maybe made for people with visual difficulties, but then I realised this could not be the case, as they used dark blue text on a light blue background in places.
I think my father-in-law could knock a site of this standard out in about 20 minutes in FrontPage, and he does not even use a PC!
Anyway, let me know if I am just being overly critical, or maybe my browser is some how rendering the page incorrectly.
