My Favorite Industry ‘About Us’ Page Shows Personality

Industry PR agency Caster Communications shows personality on its "About Us" page: 'Some of us our techies. All of us vote.'

I don’t usually read the “About Us” section of industry Web sites because they’re usually so friggin boring.

So I don’t know how I stumbled across this one at Caster Communications, a PR agency that represents Control4, Paradigm, Runco and other custom brands.

But I like it.

Here’s how it begins, and the rest of it is more of the same:

We are smart. We practice what we preach.

Some of us our techies. All of us vote.

Two of us have cats. One of us is a parent. Four of us have dogs. One of us once had 14 fish for 14 days.

Two of us are getting an MBA in sustainability. One of us has an MA. The rest of us have an assortment of BAs, and now we have a BS.

Most of us love wine (one of us has a cellar). All of us love food. All of us worship chocolate.

Most of us love shoes. Two of us have a problem with them. One of us designs cards for any occasion. ...

Are you showing personality in the way you present yourself to the world?

By the way ... while searching Google Images for a boring “About Us” graphic, I stumbled across this ... just now ... I swear. Google “About Us.”
