July 14, 2009

Whenever a user is trying to reach a website's page that is non-existent or missing, they are usually directed to a page where they're informed that that specific page cannot be recalled by the HTTP server; this is what is called a 404 error page.

As designers, when we create a web site, normally we'd also include a 404 page.

Depending on the site design, overall focus, and demographics, you'll want to create a suitable page that will cut straight to the chase and also convey a bit of creativity at the same time.

In this post you will find a showcase containing 50 of the most creative 404 pages that we found on the net.
