The name DoppelMe is cross of the words "Doppelganger" (view definition) and "Me".
DoppelMe has been put together by a rag-tag group of artists and web designers in London, UK. Frustrated at the lack of utilities available to be able to create good looking avatars, they set about creating what you now see before you.
We hope you enjoy creating and using your DoppelMe. We'd love to hear back from people who are using them in creative ways - and we're always happy to hear suggestions from users as to how we can improve the DoppelMe experience!
