When Designers Go Feral

Look everyone, this is what happens when TV people run the internets. They make it look like it's 1998, and its running off a 4x CD Rom!

Also - dark green on Cyan? What were you THINKING?

I'm actually quite embarrased about this.

Ewwww! That is nasty.

Someone left in the "BBC is not reponsible for external websites" on a page that - as far as I can tell - has no external links. But then again, the whole page has the feel of an external website ...

Tis a bit messy

In the name of all that is holy and pure, I condem BBC2's website as an abomination against visual purity.

I just can't sum up in words how wrong this is

My relief that Kim hates this too is enormous.

Kim's visual sense is second to none.

I was sneakily worried that Kim would come out in favour of this travesty.

What worries me most about this site is that there may be a hidden agenda: "Look! As soon as you put video on a web page, the other content all looks a bit redundant and silly! So let's stop making normal websites and just do video!"

Bah! Good websites should be media portals. Not look like a full-screen banner ad for f'all.

The truly sad thing about it is that you can see, deep down, somewhere underneath everything, the tiny seed of a design that might have been.

They didn't even make very high marks whilst trying to hit it.

The colours on that site don't really strike me as that ugly, but then again I am colourblind. :)
