CHALLENGE: Choose a topic on design that you feel like you now have good insight to that you didn’t when you started designing for screens. Write a 500 word blog post that shares that insight with new or less-experienced designers. Imagine you are writing on a platform like medium. Include images. Bonus points if you actually publish it on Medium.
It is important, as designers, to make sure we are design for the whole user experience—including when things go wrong. This is where 404 error pages come in. If someone mistypes a URL within your domain, the error page is displayed. If you don’t have a custom error page, the browser supplies an unuseful generic one. Your challenge today is to choose one of your completed website projects (not your menu boards) to implement a 404 error page for. Remember that a good error page should be consistent with the brand.
