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 affiliatedoctors.com

Here, the ‘doctors’ are scattered all over the globe  and bringing a look that created consistency and professionalism was a  bit of a challenge.

The solution was the creation of avatars.

This allows the evening our of backgrounds, poses and lighting to create a result that meets all the needs of a consistent looking site they also conveys professionalism.

Here is a quick screen grab of a few that were created by artist Brian:

Have a look at the site. you will see they are used in three different sizes to create a wonderful tapestry.

If you feature staff pictures on your website and feel there is a level of inconsistency, then give a thought to having professionally drawn avatars created. They are also ideal on email signatures as well 😉
