Make “YOUR” Visual Brand Count.
Whether you are just using a simple photo on a resume, or more importantly, posting “your image” to social media (either professional like Linked In, or personal like Facebook), that image IS a representation of how others perceive YOU—so, make it count!
I am inspired by art, design and color. Peter Max is a favorite for fun punches of color as well as this example I included of artflakes.com of John Lennon—all really different, but with great color and graphic design embellishments to the features.
I choose a photo that was already publicly familiar to my personal brand, and embellished it with color and texture in Photoshop. I used the JNP brand colors: orange and blue. Even though my hair and eye coloring is light, I used a contrast black and white image as my base art, and built on that for color contrast—the end result is fun, artsie, and not too dramatic (keeping it a bit more conservative for professional recognition purposes).
Join Jane, Jake and all their friends on the adventures to discover your inner awesome, together!

FYI Tip: Whatever you decide to do with your personal brand, the most basic of photography, is to have it focused, and cropped in a visual appealing frame.
