Awesomify Your Avatar

Friday, 20 April 2012   |   Creativity Challenges

CrazyI'm willing to be that a fair number of you have accounts on various websites (hopefully this one included).  And part of that account will include an avatar,  an image or icon that represents you.  It's surprising how many of them are pretty average.  I suppose a lot of people just chuck any old picture up and then don't give it another thought.  Well that avatar can and should say a lot about you so this weeks challenge is going to tackle this pressing issue.

Your challenge this week is to awesomify your avatar.

Think about what you would like your avatar to say about you.  How are you going to achieve this most effectively given that an avatar typically is quite limited in size?  Can you get your avatar to draw attention and stand out from the crowd,  helping to draw more readers to your contributions?

This is a perfect example of creativity induced by limitations.  Because you are quite limited by size, you must make good use of other characteristics.  Think about what those characeristics are (eg. colour) and how you could take advantage of them to your benefit.


I sense creativity in you.  Use it to it's fullest.
