A creative way online to describe and brand yourself in just a few minutes.

Start by visiting the online infographic wizard created by ionz.

Don’t speak Brazilian Portuguese? Me neither, so click the UK flag in the upper right hand corner of the screen to have the text translate before your eyes.

Do it yourself tips

Be careful with your choices. You can start over if you want to, but you can’t go back and make a change once you’ve started.

Step 1 – Enter your name

Type your name and click the right-pointing arrow. There’s a bug that will sometimes prevent you from typing more than the first letter of your name. If it happens, refresh the page and try again.

Step 2 – I am

Click the familiar girl or boy symbol. As you hover the mouse over either, it will pose for you. Once you make your choice, the site will also show you pie charts about previous visitor’s choices.

Step 3 – My main transport is

I rollerblade a lot and that isn’t an option, but I’m sure most people will be covered by the choices here (not sure how many people use a helicopter as their main mode of transport, though).

Step 4 – I like to eat

I’m pretty sure the first one is a veggie dish.

Step 5 – I identify with

This one is just fun.

Step 6 – I have ? email accounts

As in ‘how many email accounts do you use actively?’

Step 7 – I talk more using

The post-click statistics seem skewed on this one. Maybe it’s a cultural thing.

Step 8 – My favorite social network is

Be honest.

Step 9 – I stay online ? hours daily

Slide the dial to whatever’s appropriate, but if you need more than 12, maybe you should stop now…

Step 10 – I sleep ? hours daily

Again, dial it in.

Once you make this last choice, the first version of your cool infographic will appear.

If you click ‘Personalize infograph’, you can change the color scheme and add your avatar. You’re supposed to be able to add a message, such as your personal brand tagline, but there must be a bug because I wasn’t able to do it (in Internet Explorer or Firefox) .

Multiple personal brand uses

Save the final image as wallpaper for your computer or:

  • Add it to your website’s about page
  • Blog about it
  • Upload it as a photo to your Facebook page

Another creative way to tell people about yourself.
