    I get a fair few CV's sent to me through the site, mostly very bad and addressed to 'Dear Sir' which never goes down well. Anyway, I thought I'd share the latest gem with you...

    Ooohh... Nice to see that Flash, tables for layout, 'save for web spacer gifs' and empty paragraph tags are alive and well in web design today. Now, where is my brand new 2002 diary... :icon_thumbdown:

    As Jon has just pointed out, Apostrophe Mania may be a better name.

    Ha! Ha!

    Always makes me laugh when they say 'I thought I'd give graphic design a go...'

    Great. I was having a sip of my tea them opened that link, and spat it over my screen. Cheers.

    That was obviously a joke.

    My favourite bit is that when you click on a link sometimes it gives you a sound effect as a reward.
  15. Unbeatably bad design

    Wow... that's really unbeatably bad design.

    Flash used in 2012 = bad.
    Cheesy Sound effects = bad.
    Animation to "paint" your homepage onto the screen = lmao
    Stretched graphics = bad.
    All colours of the rainbow = bad.
    Lack of any knowledge that SEO exists = bad.
    Graphics cut out and saved via microsoft paint = bad.
    Failure to display epilespy warning prior to bright red & flashing colours poping up = UNFORGIVABLE!!!

    Well, someone phone them and ask them how much for a logo design and request examples - alternatively phone and tell them they are a disgrace to the graphic design world :icon_biggrin:

    There it is, that website again. I received the CV myself followed up by a call asking if 'I could help him out and give him some work' I can't say we've got any clients that we are thinking of losing.. Only good thing is it reminded me of my old ZX Spectrum
