Does Bitstrips have a place in small business?
These popular cartoon avatars are generally used by individuals for posting scenes of their life events. A comical and unique way of portraying what would normally be a dull few lines of text on a Facebook page.
The user first creates their own avatar and joins the online community of friends’ characters via Facebook. Multiple characters can be created and interact in a digital world of colorful scenes which can be tailored to reflect the moment being illustrated. Pretty much all character extremities and features can be manipulated allowing for an opportunity to convey emotions, thoughts and feeling. Bitstrips also allows the user to go further than a solitary image by giving options to create full comic strips to tell a story.
Just a few uses for your business
Mug shots, everybody hates having them taken and no one likes their own photo. Why not bring a little fun to your company website’s “meet the team section” and empower staff to design their own avatar as representation.
Official websites and the business Facebook pages can also benefit from these graphics when it comes keeping customers and clients up to date on recent activities.
With a bit of cropping these graphics can quickly be used not just onscreen but on printed content. Business cards, leaflets, presentations and posters can bring you and team members to life outside of the world wide web.
My humble opinion
The adage “A picture is worth a thousand words” refers to the notion that a complex idea can be conveyed with just a single still image. It also aptly characterizes one of the main goals of visualization, namely making it possible to absorb large amounts of data quickly.
I don’t know of any other free and speedy method to create such graphics, so for anyone who doesn’t happen to possess an art or graphic design degree, this could be a valuable tool for your business.
