I don’t review many sites these days because time and time again I am presented with the same shit. Someone’s blog with a regurgitated free WordPress theme, subtly modified enough to warrant removing the credit line but demonstrating no actual skill. Graphics/resource sites with MySpace layouts greased with the blood, sweat and tears of some poor bloody photographer’s hard work. Tutorials demonstrating code that is either deprecated, outdated or plain bad for you and your website. However, today I found a site that surpasses all others. A delightful blend of classic 1996 design, lightly fried with a serving of code bloat, served with a side order of fucking huge ego.
Honestly, I don’t think I have ever come across a site so eagerly marketed as the next best thing whilst being so awful at the same time.. and that’s saying something, because I had to read Crazy B’s site before I could write about her.
Without further delay, I take absolute
ly no pleasure in presenting to you: my review of Design by Treitner. Because web 2.0 is just far too trendy.
