Our identities used to be shaped by our communities, families, and friends, but in the online era we inhabit today, we are expected to write our own success stories on social media platforms. We design our own identity, create our own image, and present ourselves in the way we want to be seen. The various imaginative methods and ideas for upgrading oneself are seen as new forms of creativity, or “Self-Design”. Authored by designer, producer, and Image Society founder Mieke Gerritzen, ‘Help Your Self’ is an inspirational book for getting started with designing your perfect self. In addition, it offers reflections on the self-help industry as a relatively new phenomenon.
