It may seem insignificant, but a section that is often overlooked on company web pages is the “Meet the Team” page. This tab is a small place where we dedicate a recognition to the individuals who make it possible for our site or company to prosper, and although it does not seem so important, the truth is that it helps a lot to create a positive image of your work.
The “Meet the Team” tab of a web page is essentially the work credits. But beyond presenting the faces of workers, this tab teaches us much more about the company itself. Whether we only put pictures of the faces or a large panorama of the entire group, team pages are there to show the quality and commitment we have with others.
Not only do these pages give our clients and visitors a way of knowing who is responsible for completing their orders or bringing them daily news, but it also allows those who work with us will feel flattered that their efforts are being recognized, which will motivate them to continue working, and may even attract new employees.
If you do not have one of these pages, we highly recommend you see the following examples of some fantastic pages.

Bolden’s page is much more conventional, and at first glance, we may not see its true potential. However, as soon as we select one of the employees, we can see a transition that gives it the only design touch it needs. A design that maintains the fundamentals so as not to distract the user.

Another example where cartoons stand out is how the Advantix Digital team seeks to promote its digital marketing brand through a striking presentation with strong colors, with facial drawings using flat colors but rich detailing.

If you have finally decided that it is time to update your organization or company’s employee page, we have some additional tips to help you know how to start and what direction to take your design in.
- Keep the contact page as an individual site. A mistake some make is eliminating the human factor from biographies simply because they are business descriptions. If you want both page visitors and your teammates to feel at ease, consider adding fun anecdotes or facts about each individual. An important part of getting in touch with a company is knowing its staff.
- If you can make a presentation video or a group photo, then do so. It is not called “Meet the Team” for nothing. The idea is to see some teamwork.
- Do not be afraid to stray away from typical profile pictures. Consider adding extra photographs with scenes from day to day work, or even some where the team is having fun at work.
