Using Creativity in Website Errors

JM’s recently launched a new website and decided to take some extra creative liberty with a few items. One of which is the error 404 page. What’s an error 404? This is just a message letting the user know they were unable to communicate with the server. This can be caused by an incorrect URL, or a broken or out of date link.

Thursday: Ingredient
Friday: M’s Pub

What’s the Difference Between Underwear and a Website?

With such an obviously sensationalistic title as that, I better quickly give you a reason not to hate me and send threatening letters to my boss. Though it may not seem like it, there is definitely a method to my madness.  In my ever creative mind – which is a place that would make Stephen King an author for children’s books – I wanted to parley the importance of a website to your company’s credibility while at the same time not boring you to the point of squirting the toothpaste sitting in your medicine cabinet all over your face in an attempt to go blind.
