Since the start of The JR Express, I’ve always used a cartoon version of me as an avatar. It is now time to put a touch of evolution to the JR avatar. In the past five years, I learned a lot about marketing and technology and the changes have been reflected in the blog. That’s why I decided to make the avatar grow older. Or maybe just grow a bit wiser.
I wanted to shift from a cartoon version of JR to a real picture but didn’t want to go for a classic profile picture. The brick wall was a great way to show an urban aspect, being someone who’s quite present on the ground. And the white color of it is like a blank space which opens a lot of space for creativity.
I hope you guys like this evolution. I would love to hear your feedback!
Note: Special thanks to my friend Dana Hanna who’d been supporting me on making this evolution happen.
