Being a Female, What is your Clothing Style?

Creative 404 Error Page Designs
 

When you are running a full-fledged website or a blog, every page counts…even the invalid ones. Presentation forms an integral part in making a blog successful. Error pages are a common phenomenon to encounter on every website or blog. Either the viewer clicks on a broken link or inadvertently types an incorrect URL they get a dull and boring error page saying “404! Page Not Found”. For an average user, this is very unpleasant. While there isn’t anything that can be done to stop a 404 Error from occurring, the least that can we can do as graphic designers is to spice up the page into a presentable format.

Being a graphic designer and owner of Graphic Design Blog, I have always valued the importance of keeping every page of the blog presentable. Instead of having the same old boring 404 pages, we should focus on making an imaginative page that the viewers would be thrilled to land upon.

For an idea on how to light up that boring and monotonous error page on your website, take a look at these 30 imaginative and creative 404 Error pages that everyone would simply love to land upon.

    I love these. There’s some great ideas in there. Particularly like the FourOhFour Giraffe. Think that’s my favourite!

    Great examples. Thank you. Not all 404 pages seem to have a navigation bar. Is this on purpose? Just a link to the homepage or a search bar?

    Great post full of great examples of innovative 404 pages. This is usually a much forgotten page and shows a great attention to detail to spend time designing a creative 404 page for inclusion on your site.
    I think that Deliciously Creative and Plate 404 use this page well. I like the way they have used humour to suggest a mistake.

    These are awesome. I’ve always been a HUGE fan of custom 404 pages. Adding these small details to any website shows that you took the extra time to make the site even better. The one for CSS Tricks 404 was my favorite. Must have been a lot of work finding all of these examples.

    Considered, witty and useful error pages are always good to see.

    These error pages provide a pretty good idea of the overall theme of the website. I enjoyed perusing them. For my scifi site, I created an error page that blames the rebels who appear in various stories.

    Great list, I hadn’t seen any of those! I think sometimes it’s not clear the user reached a 404 with all the graphics though, the best ones have a good balance. My favorite is Blizzard Entertainment!

    at least when you’re annoyed the website doesn’t have what you want, you can still have a nice time reading the error note! It’s like an amusing obit
