Everyone knows by heart what the dreaded number 404 means. It can pop up anywhere and anytime while you are browsing the net upon clicking just a single link. And in a blink of an eye, you got the infamous line that says “404 Not Found.” All the contents you expect on a web page are seemingly gone with the wind.
For beginners, an error page can still make you go panic and often put you in a nervous state. “What did I do?” is often the question that keeps on bugging you as your screen flashes the number 404. Commonly, the error 404 message occurs not because you did something wrong on the internet. The website owner of the link you click is actually the one who is responsible for this since this error code happens when the content on a page is removed or transferred to another URL.
While some webpage owners didn’t mind at all the design of their own error page, creating a witty or creative UX for your own 404 pages can actually become a medium for you to propel your branding to your clients. Making these error pages with a touch of little creativity can help you leave a memorable impression on anyone who visits your site. And who knows this might be your key to winning your biggest client.
To help you design the perfect error page of your site, here are some awesome UX, themes, and layout from Epicpxls that provides the stylish appearance of that 404. Whether you want to achieve a minimalist look or something quirky and humorous, we got you all covered!
