Do you all still design them? I feel like most of the sites I go to don't put any effort into them. Personally, I love designing these pages.
Definitely. For Noodles, a cooking app, the error pages have "500. Our Noodles are in a bit of a tangle.” I think they really show off your brand and are a great opportunity to have some extra fun.
Yes bouncing DVD screen yes yes yes.
Yup! Still design them whenever possible. I think they're a great place to add a little whimsy to your app/service.
We just designed one for our new site: https://dribbble.com/shots/1814795-Notabli-404?list=users&offset=6
Couldn't agree more. I posted this question because I love designing these pages, but don't see many out there anymore. Thanks for the feedback.
SO COOL that your app was in the Jurassic World trailer. I'm floored.
Not my app. Wish it was my app. Had a similar idea, never got off the ground.
One of the most popular things I ever made was a 404 page for Nosh. It was named by Time as the best ever. I wholeheartedly agree. The site is gone but the content is here: https://vimeo.com/26858445
Sometimes it's the little things that matter.

That is pretty awesome!
Check out http://404sites.tumblr.com/ for a good collection of 404 pages
Good find. Thanks!
Yeah :) Our main feature is to "Pick" articles, so I used the Pick circle that's also in our logo in a quick illustration
wait for it.....
If you guys do have plenty of staffs or time , just do it for fun.
If not, I suggest you spend time on more valuable things.
Having fun is more valuable than it sounds. When you're having fun making your site, it shows through to the user - and the user thinks you're fun. The user thinks you're a fun site and you've got personality and a fun team.
I disagree. You can build a really nice set of error pages in half an hour, and they extend your brand greatly when something happens. While maybe it isn’t technically “valuable” it adds so much to the UX.
