Pencil Vs Camera By Ben Heine


by Tony

Last week while I was on the behance.net website, I stumbled upon some cool photographs/sketches by this artist called Ben Heine. He actually calls these beautiful works Pencil VS Camera!. I found them to be so interesting that I wanted to share them with all of you. Although there are only 19 in his collection so far, they are definitely worth showcasing. Hope you enjoy as much as I do.

404 Error: 60+ Creative And Well Designed Pages


When doing my research on 404 error pages, I was surprised to see that three quarters of the websites I visited did not have custom 404 error pages. These pages are designed to tell the end user that he or she is lost or has come across a page that no longer exists and thus guides them back to the homepage of the website that they were viewing. Without this 404 error page your viewer may stumble upon the default browser 404 error page and you run the risk of them leaving your website all together. So if you do not have an 404 error page on your website, what are you waiting for?  Check out these brilliant designs for some great ideas!
