What is a personal brand statement?

What is a personal brand statement?

Personal branding is a strategy that creative professionals can use to stand out from the crowd and be recognized in their field. A strong personal brand statement will help you rise above your competition because it instantly gives people an idea of who you are, what you do, and why others should hire you. 

The overarching goal of a personal branding campaign is to provide information about who we are and tell the story behind our products and services.

The value of a personal brand statement

The value of a personal brand statement

Think of a remarkable personal brand statement like a killer song title or a logline for a movie. A good title makes a song instantly memorable (think, THE BEATLES: ‘Hey Jude’). And when people read a well-crafted logline (think, JAWS: ‘A police chief, with a phobia for open water, battles a gigantic shark with an appetite for swimmers and boat captains’), they instantly know what kind of story it will be about before even seeing any trailers or posters.

Critical Elements of a Creative Professional's Brand Statement

Critical Elements of a Creative Professional's Brand Statement

Personal branding for creative professionals is different from other fields. Personal brands are a type of self-promotion, and they’re often used by designers, artists, architects, and many other creative professions such as graphic design or writing. 

A personal brand should focus on what you can do in your field rather than who you are personally (e.g., name, address, occupation). Personal branding for creative professionals is about the value you can offer to potential customers and colleagues.

"It’s important to note that a personal brand isn’t only a logo, a color scheme, or an elevator pitch, although those things are essential and can help support your online and offline brand. A personal brand combines your unique presence in all aspects of your life! Personal branding starts with who you are and how you show up in all contexts. A well-formed personal brand can be used to creatively express yourself or strategically communicate your skills, experience, values, and attitude. The elements you choose for your brand must resonate with who you really are!"

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone
