Worst Graphic Design. Guest Post by Robotnik
Robo. Have had a request to cover the outside, or at least the silent bells of La Carillion. Like your attack on the innards. This is a truly appalling piece of design, backed up with equally poor implementation- ed. Robotnik says…Pancakes at Carillon
This has so much wrong with it that, like a meal based solely around variations on a pancake, it’s difficult to know where to start.
Note the clip-art chef so engrossed in his Vileda dish-cloth tossing he hasn’t even noticed the terrible kerning under his feet. Or is he the “Pat Carillon” of the title? Marvel at the yellow-cake radio buttons that bear no alignment with their labels. Go to the site and try clicking where it says ‘click!’ Hilarious! And just what does the mysterious ‘Adventure in Paradise’ allude to?Once upon a time this place had an identity as I recall, some Belle Epoch tart uttering the word ‘perfect’, and yes, there she is relegated to the small-print, as if fallen on hard times and scrounging for scraps by the kitchen door. Odd that in a town of impermanent eateries, of here-today-gone-tomorrow hamburger huts, that PAC, which can claim a quarter century of continuous ‘caking doesn’t make more of what could genuinely be regarded as ‘tradition’.
Superb post in word and pic Robotnik. Also like the button that lights up a $ sign which opens a new window for specials – A new window that delivers you a blank orange rectangle. I believe the “tart” used to say “Lovely”. This rivals many of the world’s worst websites. Straight to worst of the worst.
