About.me is a relatively new web service where you can easily create a free one-page website about yourself. It’s something like an online business card. Because of the great About.me domain, it’s pretty useful and there’s really no need to have your own domain name for it.
Everything on About.me is pretty much self-explanatory. Once you register, you will get a subdomain http://about.me/yourname where you can add your picture as well as links to profiles on various social networks and sites. To get started on About.me, you’ll just need a short text about yourself and your skills, a photo and some inspiration for getting that “wow” feeling in the design of your profile.
We can’t help you with the first 2, but we made a list of the 10 most creative About.me profiles that should get your inspiration juices flowing! Check them out and leave links to other great profiles in the comments!
We love fish. A lot. And that’s why we really like Steve’s About.me profile page. By looking in wonder at all those tropical fish and his bio with a snorkel and without a mask on his face, Steve made it on our creative About.me profiles list.
When you’re a performance and installation artist, you want to show that to the world. And that is exactly what Laurel Jay Carpenter did.
Similar to Laurel, Veronyka Jelink also created a very creative About.me page. Veronyka is into animation, illustration and comics, and her profile page shows it nicely.
Collen Marlow is another working bee in our About.me profiles list. She says that having fun is one of her core values, and she’s not afraid to express it. Being in love with amusement parks, fairs and circuses, Collen’s About.me profile page pictures her as a bee collecting some sweet nectar.
James Ellison used his Instagram shots to create an About.me profile page; a nice little album featuring probably the most valuable things in his life. We haven’t stumbled on something like that, so we’re adding him to our list.
Pedro Thomaz is a designer, photographer and a guitar player. According to his mother, Pedro is a really nice guy, and according to us, he has a really nice About.me profile page. We really digg how he smilingly looks at his profile!
Susanne’s About.me profile page claims that she seeks to reconnect our natural world with the Divine. Her profile illustrations send the same message. Susanne is an artist and a writer who decided to illustrate her profile page instead of putting up a photograph.
Gian’s profile page is on this list because of a great message in the photograph. Make sure to check it out and think about it – are you the future? Today’s kids definitely are.
