I can't explain why exactly, but I am fascinated by a pair of truly horrendous web pages I ran across in the last week.
When I was growing up in New York City, Carvel ice cream had commercials on TV with Tom Carvel himself doing the narration. These commercials stood out even to children as having remarkably low production values. The theory at the time was that it was done intentionally to make an impression. Are we seeing the same tactic with these web sites? Or am I reading too much into it, and these are simply horribly designed?
In the case of HavenWorks, the owner seems proud of his distinction, since at the bottom of the page is this notice:
and he even has a page of his other designs.
