50 of the Most Creative 404 Pages on the WWW

Unread post by krangara » Wed Jun 24, 2015 7:51 pm

Even the most conscientiously designed websites often have pages that don't work! When this happens, you can either opt for a generic - read BORING - 404 Page that has your visitors rolling their eyes, or transform a non-functioning page into a delightful experience!

This article compiles 50 of the MOST creative 404 Pages on the Internet. All of them share one trait: they have a personality (and most of them are funny!)

Hey, if your visitors are lost, it's only fair that you guide them back with a smile on your face, eh?

And if a 404 Page has a picture of George Clooney or Aaron Rodgers on it - trust me, I wouldn't navigate to ANY OTHER page on your site! :P

ENJOY!

OMG! I saw this before and it is awesome! Great examples of how to make a 404 page interesting and to keep your visitors on your site rather than bumping them off.

I have a cute 404 on gingerrootsmedia.com/404-2/ (NO this is NOT a hot link because I do not want a link to that page getting picked up)

It is one of my lil friends that liked the camera.

On the Canva article, the Mexican hat put me in a trance...I couldn't have left...I'd just keep watching.


I watch YouTube videos.
