an elegant website critique

by jturkin on January 26, 2011

Admittingly so, I know little of creating websites, but I recently applied for a job from a production company with a sinful homepage. Upon further investigation, I had a lot of issues with it.

1) Please never ever ever make a flash site that not only takes 20 seconds to load, but also proceeds to play a 20 second video that the user cannot skip.

2) Do not have said video play everytime the user clicks on a new link within the site.

3) Do not have every link on your site open in a new window.

4) Please provide me with a way to return to the main site.

5) I would highly recommend your logo to remain the same on each page of the site.

6) If you want to be taken seriously as a production company, perhaps update your email address to one that doesn’t end with, “@earthlink.net”

Clearly this company has experience in the industry, as they’ve been around long to carry a “@earthlink.net” email address. I would reconsider the, “you wouldn’t hit an old man” image to a more trustworthy, “sure I’ve aged, that just means my taste is refined and my wine has ripened” feel.

Bottom line, I did not get the job. I guess I wasn’t VHS enough for them.
