From pure and simple text, to pictures or illustrations, it’s really important to add your own personality to the about section of your website. It doesn’t matter if you are a designer, writer, a store, a service provider or something else, it’s always interesting to show your audience who you are. It’s nice to get the viewers attention and try to make them connect with you. From storytelling techniques to straight to the point text or a picture and a small bio line, there are several different approaches to this task. This is why today we gathered some inspiring examples of about pages to give you some ideas.

    Great post and totally agree how important it is to have a little personality on the about us page – it totally helps with engagement. Photos of the people make the biggest impression in my opinion.

    I always love seeing collections showing variety. Nice to compare different identities and designs, for inspiration and critique.

    Thanks :)

    What is it with all of the centered type these days? i’m a design teacher and studio owner for nearly 2 decades, and I cannot get it across that more than 2-3 lines of centered text is almost always a bad idea. Several of the samples here have large blocks of text with one or two words hanging out all by themselves at the bottom of the information. Very poor design technique. Learn better typographical layout skills and then call it inspiring… type is part of the art, after all. Some nice stuff here, but some bad stuff as well.

      Can’t edit my comment, but it should be “I’m a design teacher…” — I missed the typo.
