Not to mention the images of their employees are pretty rad.

Useful About Pages

This has to be one of the best about pages I've ever seen. This company does a great job of providing information about all of their products.

How to Create Useful 'About' Pages

A successful about page should help people understand who you are, what you do, and the roles of individuals or groups in your company so they know who to get in contact with and for what purpose. About pages can help your customers or clients get to know you better and what you do.

Tips for a Useful and Awesome About Page

  • Have Creative Copy: Make your writing stand out, say something unique.
  • Say Exactly What You Do: Explain who you are, what you do, and why you do it.
  • Offer methods of getting in touch: Direct people to different email addresses or contact forms for different information, and showcase all of your social profiles.
  • Show Off Your Employees: Show that your employees and the creative minds behind your company are what really makes your company stand out above the rest.
  • Don't leave people with questions: point people to an FAQ section or provide them with a contact form in case they still have questions.

  1. There are some great examples here, and they work because they show personality -- which is so key to standing out in a crowded marketplace. My favorite is Considered Alternative, because they follow the copywriters rule of About pages, which is to lead with what's in it for the ideal customer, and only then talk about yourself, and these guys do this very well.

  2. Love the company stats on the Double Dutch page! So cool how they incorporated their office environment into their About page.

  3. I've never thought that about pages could be this creative. Personally, about pages have just been a "go-to-if-we-need-to", but with these creative ideas in creating about pages, the site would seem more interesting than ever.

    On the other hand, has anyone ever tried prezi? It's like powerpoint on steroids! Building creative about pages like the ones above when using prezi would be a breeze!

  4. i am Mrs cherry Johnson from CANADA,i want to testify of the good work of DR FRANK in my life,i lost my husband to a prostitute who vow to take him away from me by all means.
    i was confused never to know what to do until this faithful day a friend of mine called me that there is a man who can solve my problem immediately,i contacted him and he told me that my husband will come begging on his knees believe it or not on that same day he promise me my husband came to the house after 6months begging me to accept him back,so whatever your situation may look like just email the below address:
    BLACKSPIRITSTEMPE@GMAIL.COM

  5. Excellent post. I always try to get my clients to think of their about us pages a bit more creatively. Photos with text on a page just doesn't do it anymore. It's usually a huge difference maker in whether or not client or customer buys with you.

  6. some pictures are creative but not funny, If you really want to view funny images then open this page, gif-king.com
