404 message

The current 404 page (for instance at https://freesvg.org/hedgehog-clip-art ) is not very informative. It just says "Page Not Found Sorry, but the page you were trying to view does not exist."
It would be nice if it could be branded with the site logo and at least provide a link to get to the front page.

Google has a dinosaur for no connection, pixabay have sad white faced male, so not a bad idea plus injects a bit humour into an otherwise boring page, please provide link to image, and it can be taken into consideration.

I seem to remember it looked a bit like this guy:

Although these condescending owls would be fun too:

There is also: https://freesvg.org/sad-panda
https://freesvg.org/peterm-sad-cat

I am good with anything you guys agree on, I suppose if we ever got bored of the image it can always be swaped out with one of the others suggested.

Agree with liftarn though, page should include logo, link back to home page or back button may be better so people don't lose track of what they are searching for, and I suppose a report this page button or some other mecahnism to notify yourselves of the page problem, so that it can be fixed.

Re: 404 message

purhaps but we don't want it looking too cluttered, I would knock up a screenshot to invision what it may look like but I am on my way out the door. Also, I don't think they should be in your face, purhaps mutted in colour so they don't distract from the overal message and site branding, If I get a chance to work on it later I will drop you a mail with my concept so you understand what I mean.
