Graphic Me

all me

After being reminded of NYT’s article Putting Your Best Cyberface Forward, reading Ad Age’s My Own Personal Branding Problem and realizing that I haven’t changed my digital avatar in a long, long time I thought it might be an appropriate time. It was also mentioned to me that I have my image everywhere which I had never really considered in terms of different social networks out there. Last night a fluke event happened where a co-worker was playing w/ my camera so I got out of character and asked him to shoot – it was going to be all or nothing. I wasn’t going to ask him to take five, ten or twenty shots to find the “one”. In the end it was ok enough to start as a replacement avatar. After opening a lot of different applications it became slightly daunting when I looked at all the different sizes and formats. Interested for comparisons sake I started collecting all the sizes this morning. I’m not sure what the above image is supposed to suggest, but from a branding perspective it takes more time then I thought to rebrand just one image.
