Webcrimes: Case 2 Foggy Nostalgia

While planning my weekend excursions I came across the site for the Edmonton Streetcar. The crimes of this site are many.

Starting with the super fuzzy/pixelated header image with a gradient fade out that does nothing to hide the edges of the image. In fact all the images are poorly rendered as if the designer was trying to make everything look foggy or dusty.
The horrible background tiles. The nav menu.

The other pages don't get much better. Lime green text mixed with bright red text. Poor chart design. The list goes on and on.Clearly the designer was going for that faded sepia look which i think is conceptually appropriate for the subject. The implementation of it leaves a lot to be desired. Ugg that text I cant get over it!

Check the site out here.
