Pascal Deville finds beauty in websites others abhor. Here are his picks for the Internet’s most beautiful atrocities.
Craigslist is one of the ugliest websites on the Internet.

At a time when websites are competing to offer the best digital experiences, Craigslist is the pinnacle of user unfriendliness. And that’s exactly what makes it brilliant, says Pascal Deville.
