Design Pet Peeve

I don’t want to view your article in a 20 section side-show. I’d like to just view the article in one page, thanks. At the very least, give me the option.

One site that is bad at this is REAL Simple. Ironic? I thought so. Great magazine, terrible site design… even the homepage is overly cluttered and overwhelming. Almost every article I clicked on turned out in side-show format, and I quickly lost interest. It just takes too long and too many clicks to get through a simple 1 or 2 page article in slide-show format.

I am liking their Pinterest boards though. Good stuff there.
