For the first time in over fours years I have updated my profile picture, which you will notice on the left side bar of the website and across my social media profiles (Facebook, Twitter, Dribbble, etc.). Although it may seem like a small change, there is a lot of brand equity and recognition that is built up within a profile photo. A profile photo is what represents you across the web & offline, similar to how a logo represents a business or product.
The New Profile Photo
The new photo was taken on a cruise ship, using a Nikon D80 at 1/125, using a white back drop and two umbrellas. The photo has been converted to black and white and when used on social profiles, it will feature a transparent bottom left corner (see below), which will turn the profile into an ‘arrow’. You can see how the arrow works, when used on Tweetdeck below. This arrow feature will also be evident on the upcoming re-design of Just Creative Design.
Upcoming Re-brand & Website Re-design
Just like my profile picture, this website design has been around for over four years. I’ve been meaning to redesign it for a few years now, but never followed through, but I’ve since found some time. Within the next few months a custom redesign of Just Creative Design will launch, including two new responsive template pages and an updated portfolio. Below you can see a sneak preview of the design, and more on the Dribbble Project Page as time goes on.
A New Domain
In other news, I’ve acquired the domain https://justcreative.com so that may give a hint to the way the re-branding is going.
Would love to hear your feedback on the new profile picture and website.
