10 Creative 404 Error Pages That Will Put A Smile On Your Dial

Don’t you hate it when you click on a link and it says File Not Found.

Infuriating, huh? Soz 🙁

What you’ve stumbled upon is a 404 Error – which means that the webpage you were trying to reach could not be found. Doh!

Like, time is money, right. You’re a busy person. You don’t have time for such annoyances.

Unless of course, the 404 Error page you land on rewards you with some humour, a smile, a pleasant surprise.

And why shouldn’t it? I love it when a business goes that extra one percent and attends to these little marketing touch points with a sense of humour.

Here’s 10 businesses that have gone above and beyond with a creative 404 error page to reward us when we land where we shouldn’t:


1. North Face blame the goat …
