Another funny 404 error page where copywriting and visual work particularly well together.
High contrast colors and big typography emphasize the ironically boastful nature of this website introduction.
If your web monsters won’t make you sleep at night, you can just call this amazingly creative web agency.
Fun comes in really unexpected ways: sometimes is just a label on a form button.
Cocollective website’s texts create repeatedly a pun that recalls the agency’s name, creating an element of surprise and memorability.
Beautiful and funny “about us” page: since we don’t have such category, let’s pretend we’ve liked the copywriting.
I really suggest you to visit the external link (on the upper left corner).
area 22 is a nice portfolio from the San Francisco based designer Sonia Chan and a beautiful example of minimal design as well.
Apart from that, I love the tiny text snippets that introduce each section: they give a really personal touch to the browsing experience.
How come all the big company can’t embrace a smart, direct, lively communication style like this?
Mixing different weight and style and, possibly, different typefaces, is one of the most ancient trick in modern typography. The risk is that sometimes text is not enjoyable or readable, but we think this is not the case.
Contrary to the actual webdesign trend of overbearing footers, crammed with links and sometimes not very pertinent references, Fridgework shows us the beauty of a simple five words ending (and a strategically set back-to-top button) .
An effective, minimal and charming way to introduce your studio, your work or the philosopy underlying your materspieces could be writing it in a short introduction (or simply summarizing it with a witty quote). Even if you’re a vector virtuoso or a photoshop goddess, a nicely written text may be the way to distinguish yourself (your firm, your business, your personal recreational webpage) from many others and to make your website memorable.
Tumblr is one of my favorite example of effective user interaction model. The sign up form is a masterpiece of simplicity and functionality: no confirmation fields to fill in, no threatening messagges or red alerts for mandatory informations or complicated password policy, just a minimal sets of data, a nice copy on the top, a big cushiony button on the bottom and a discrete, teasing green callout box inviting you eventually to read 24 reasons for loving Tumblr.
This is a powerful callout box found in Income diary, a blog that hopefully will teach us all how to earn an additional income from the Internet.
Apart from the blog’s lofty ideals, I really think that in this case the association of a street sign icon with a heavy typography and a bossy copywriting can catch user’s attention and push him into reading, which basically is what a callout box it’s about, isn’t it?
Today we’ve added a brand new category to Web & Patterns, about good inspirational copywriting for the web.
So today’s first post is all about
Bringing the art to the cart
which is a beautiful example of product introduction that, once read, it will stick in your mind for very looong.
Have an inspirational day!
Crowleywebb is an AD agency located in Buffalo with a quite surprisingly unconventional flash website. I think it’s a bold move for an agency to put aside any graphic treatments, relying only on typography and copy. As you will see, the splash page is brilliant, the text treatment is simple yet effective and the transitions are smooth and neat (though I don’t love very much the blurred menu on the left bottom corner – not displayed in the screenshot).
Tip: if you have 10” left, take a look at the BORING video, which in fact is anything but boring (you can find the link in the website’s homepage).
This loooong 404 error page text from Jason Santa Maria’s blog made me chuckle.
Oops! There isn’t even a remotely meaningful page here; not unlike the rest of this site. At least some of the other pages have some pretty pictures to look at. Why don’t you try starting again from the front door? Or maybe you would just like to contact me to inform me of your hatred of me and my website for not having the page you requested. Either way, you don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here.
A foul-mouthed, obscenely funny 404 error page from South Park Studios’ website. What else could you have been expecting from Kyle Broflovski and Eric Cartama put together in a single web page?
While I was… ehm… browsing on Torrentz yesterday night, I got this cute, moving Server Error Page.
Hope the hamsters are feeling better by now.
Roughly from French:
We’re sorry but the page you’ve been looking for it’s not been found. We suggest you to go back to the web site, because here there’s not a shadow of any bright idea.
The metaphor is unusual and the good copy matches perfectly the illustration: this error page is simply…brilliant!
Welcome to nothing is the perfect title for a 404 error page. Congratulations to the designer Ole Martin Kristiansen for being the first to use it.
There’s a fun detail in Feedrinse price plan, a service that allows to filter unwanted Syndicate contents. Can you tell which?
By the way, packages’ names are great.
Heading in Snog web site, a brand of frozen yogurt made in UK. are entertaining.
They’re highlighted by an “abnormal” typography, as if they were road signages. (But who knows … maybe they really are)
A nice sign up button on Kontain (over on mouse out, below on mouse over), including the not so obvious labeling : Give it a try.
