Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Create an About page, part of Designing a Portfolio Website with Muse.
- [Instructor] In this movie we're going to talk about…what goes into making a good About Page.…And I have included in the Resources PDF some links…to what I think are some good About Pages.…My first point is that the About Page is not your resume.…It's not your CV, although you can of course…include a link to your CV on your About Page.…We want something that is more engaging, more personal,…and perhaps more humorous.…Keep in mind that humor doesn't always travel well.…
Maybe its a mission statement.…Maybe it's an origin story of how you came to be…the designer that you are today.…If you find it difficult writing about yourself…persuade a friend to do it for you…at least to get you started,…and you can return the favor for them.…You might consider having it in interview format…or maybe even writing about yourself in the third person.…Things to include might be a list of your software skills.…What you're currently listening to.…And any kind of personal trivia that just humanizes you…and makes you seem like you're a fun kind of person…
