I set myself a time challenge also to get it done on time. (to save the poor moderator’s fingers!)

I had a few ideas floating around before I had that light bulb Eureka moment.

Use the colours as filters / Bucket fill a flower

But the challenge was to create a template so I went for an angular design that could separate and highlight the text sections.

The placing of the rectangles leads the eye to the character and the space for the bio. Notice the header texts do the same.

I am a fan of 8 bit characters and have used some I created here from a medical module. I much prefer using original artwork than lame stock images.
