Here are a few sites which have the worst design (atleast i think so)
I'd say these are all standard layouts that come with OS commerce,
Virtuemart, Magento, you name it, with a basic template. You didn't
say if "design" mean "graphic" or "interface".

These don't seem so bad from a IxD stand point. I didn't fail to
find what I was pretending to look for. I understood what did what
and got what I expected when I picked things.
There wasn't anything overly annoying, like being forced to pick
where I live just to see the sites. Although, in the first one, I got
a strange login request when i clicked contact us.
But this is hardly anything close to 'worst'
Now, if you meant graphic design, these are pretty bad. But they also
aren't for general consumers, they are for bulk orders made by
businesses and so slick graphic design is likely not that important
for them. I doubt they would see any increase in business because of
Now, from a IxD stand-point, garbinc.com is actually really
effective. It is drop dead easy to navigate and blatantly obvious
from the very first moment. I don't really understand why they named
their clothing human names, but that is more to do with the internals
of the company, not the website. Rather than try to over-extend their
site and do everything, they took a minimalist approach, stayed in
line with their business and provide an easy system to get at the
information that people will need from them. It is a success.
Big Win for Garbinc
