25 Creative, Helpful & Funny 404 Error “Not Found” Examples

After countless hours of development everybody is happy when pushing a website or application live. What people usually forget is to create meaning-, helpful or at least creative “404 Error Not Found” page. This is not something developers often pay attention to but should.

Most sites have a banal message like “Not found” and essentially that’s what it is, but you can make users happier, at least putting a smile on their face. A 404 Page should at least contain site-wide links to be able to quickly jump to another page, or, be as popular and viral like twitter’s fail whale used to be. Here are a couple of great examples ranging from creative to helpful to extravaganza.
