    Thanks for sharing! Totally agree with you that ‘About’ pages should fit the personality of the company, and they are the tools to show who we are and what we do. How do you like our ‘About’ page? http://wittycookie.com/about.html

    A takeaway from this gallery is the importance in keeping “About Us” pages minimal in text, engaging in visuals. Humanizing the brand with casual, fun pictures of the staff is a great way to replicate a closeness with the company, and get that much closer to recreating a brick-and-mortar experience. Awesome examples!

    Nice collection! Some are fairly straight-laced and others are cute and playful but they’re all nicely designed.

    H-Art solved this good – but I think your image is not up to date, because they show a movie in their current version. Thanks for sharing!
