A humorous 404 page is often a testament to how much a company cares about their website design and entertaining their web visitors. I’m delighted when I stumble across a site that has taken a creative approach to these warning messages. I recently crafted a new concept for Butterfly’s 404 page, during my web research I came across these beauties. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
