So here we are today, following up my recent post on examples of good graphic design. I mean, you knew this would come sooner or later. We will go through the Top Terrible Examples of Graphic Design, or TTEGD. From the classic no-effort websites, to the *facepalm* examples of logos… THIS IS TTEGD! (commence the cheezy gameshow music)
Starting us off with Number 3 is…. http://www.emcp.com/intro_pc/reading6.htm
EMCP.com is here to give you the basics on great graphic design, I mean, just look at their perfect example of a site: *warning* SARCASM INTENDED
Coming in at Number 2: ACCEPT JESUS, FOREVER FORGIVEN at http://www.dokimos.org/ajff/
If I could describe this website in one word it would be puzzle. The thing that amazes me about this site is the fact that they it is a Christian website with a gif of a panther running and a bright rainbow background scrolling the the right. The website seems as if you stare too long, eye damage is ever so possible. I am not even sure if they wanted to make this website serious, but if they really wanted to promote Christianity, I would first remove the creepy messages advertising eternal life.
Finishing us off with the Number 1 worst example of graphic design is: Check Point Software Technologies Logo! http://www.checkpoint.com/
I am going to be straightforward and say it. Check Point Technologies Ltd has the worst logo I have ever seen. It looks as if they hired a toddler to draw their logo. I can guarantee that they sat the kid down in front of a desktop computer and gave him bright colored crayons. This is not something I would want my business to be remembered by.
