Avatars a hit on new site

One of the challenges of featuring people’s photos on a website is consistency.

The issue is bad enough when people can be taken in the same workplace, but unless they are taken in a  consistent manner, the results are typically variable, and as a result unprofessional-looking.

This is further compounded when the people are in different locations and do not have a consistent theme.

This was the challenge facing the creator of a new site called

Caricatures for your blog

When people think of caricatures, they often think of a comic, rather distorted image that due to its humor is good for a fun gift, but little else.

Take this for example:


OK the quality here is a little off as the image size was reduced, but you can see the full sized image here on their blog.

Note also how the images have been cropped and used as avatars for each post. Neat.
