Strange decision to use Comic Sans as the font for the titles of the website headings.

I could not find a way to navigate away from the homepage to any deeper links with more information. One would expect that the left skyscraper section would be hotlinked to more examples.

Would also be nice to see some examples of completed work and a more personal approach to contact and more information about the company for prospective customers.

Decent channel that clearly has a social presence of some size. A gripe would be the focus on one political perspective - that is, the channel is certainly left-leaning to far-left and has little support for alternative viewpoints.

The audience could be more diversified by attracting and maintaining differing viewpoints that could attract a broader audience by accommodating conservative viewership.

The actual audience of the channel skews young but there is a growing trend of younger counter-culture conservatives which is a large and as of yet largely untapped demographic.
Very intriguing website with a gorgeous design animated video at the top, a pleasantly minimal beautiful layout and buttons.

The font face is also pleasant to look at and the site overall looks clean and is very user friendly and is genuinely fun to explore. The concept itself is very cloak-and-dagger and the mystery of it took me in enough that despite visiting only to review the site, I ended up signing up.

A fantastic example of how to design a website well. Excellent!

Politics , Statistics
One of the very few politics sites on the internet that is truly unbiased and is not pushing neither a right or a left-wing agenda.

It is a fantastic compendium, compiled twice daily - once in the morning and once in the afternoon - of all the news that is worth reading - in a readily accessible, minimal, link-based form.

If you are at all interested in world events and politics news, this should be your landing page for news in the morning.
Pleasant interface coupled with a quick loading time leaves a great initial first impression.

The very bottom of the homepage is quite sparse and looks somewhat odd with the "Contact Us" section taking up a lot of space with little else going on. In addition, the About Us section right above is quite long and takes a long time to scroll through - perhaps splitting the homepage into sub-pages could be useful to improve UX.

Overall, a good-looking first impression but the site overall could benefit from a rehaul of the below-the-fold content.

A pretty busy homepage with a lot of content on it but with nicely designed top navigation. The footer is similarly well-designed and leads the user to not be overwhelmed despite the great amount of content present on the site.

I would consider reducing the amount of options on the homepage, and perhaps replacing it with more information about the service itself rather than a simple list of all videos on the page.

Overall, however, the design is clean and functional and is generally good - and can be made great - by making the user experience somewhat less overwhelming.

Comedy , Lists
Once one of my favorite sites to navigate, learn useless trivia, and waste hours on - Cracked has gradually descended into clickbait, heavy politicized liberal slam pieces, and generally has grown more and more akin to Buzzfeed in recent years.

The interesting thing is that although initially a counterculture media organization much like Vice, it like Vice itself has sold itself out to the highest bidder with heavily biased and/or uninformative and uninteresting listicles.

Cracked has truly become Buzzfeed 2.0. A shame.

BuzzFeed

BuzzFeed

http://buzzfeed.com

News , Entertainment
Born as a clickbait, arbitrage website completely devoid of any substance or content - it somehow took that concept and made it worse.

Buzzfeed is known as the laughingstock of the internet, for its truly vile cesspool of social justice warriors, for its overly dramatic authoritarians-in-denial, and for the website's absolute refusal to be held accountable for what the site publishes.

The website hides sponsored articles in amongst regular "articles" which are typically lists or quizzes aimed at the lowest common denominator, and when it attempts to do more "serious journalism", the result is completely unabashed defense of the rabid, radical, extreme left and a total assault on free speech and conservative thought.

To say Buzzfeed has no credibility is to understate things greatly.

The site is easy to browse if a little non-aesthetic. I would suggest redoing the top bar and making it more minimal and image-oriented.

The footer is very crowded and loaded with a lot of information which could probably be more effective if it were cut down.

Programming , Productivity
Interesting looking site that provides a service that converts code between different languages.

The highlight colors are bright but it is not an overwhelming feeling as the busyness of the site and the menus are not overly busy.

The central design element of the focus of the page with the handwritten post-it notes do look a little unprofessional, too casual.

I would consider changing that perhaps.

I like this company. Their professional staff and advisers always provide quality services. Booking and related to it processes take not more than several business days, that's why I can consult them right before my trips. Recommend it!
