This Website Was Poorly Designed On Purpose To Show the Importance of UI Design

Whenever we go online, we probably don't pay much attention to how the websites we go to were designed. Since all we see is the end result, we simply go through the site and do what we went there for. But once the conventions and principles of web and UI design are broken, we get to appreciate such things a whole lot more.

And that's the purpose of the site User Inyerface, a UI experiment which was intentionally designed poorly so that it would show how much we take for granted when we go online.

Over the past decennium, users have grown accustomed to certain design patterns: positions, colors, icons... Rather than looking at a UI, users tend to act instinctively and take 90% of an interface for granted.
...But what happens if we poke all good practice with a stick and stir it up? What if we don't respect our self-created rules and expectations and do everything the other way around?
