There is a certain something about every Mary, Tom, Janice, or whoever you may be. It might be a certain color you like to wear, a fragrance that defines you, something special you always cook or an expression you often use. Having a signature characteristic means saying to others, “Look, this is something that I especially like. It has become a part of who I am. You may or may not like it, but it is likely that you will continue to associate it with me.”
Designers are renown for signature elements of their collections. Craftsmen add certain details to their products. Artistic works bear recognizable traits. In fact, people in all walks of life develop ways to call attention to that special something that sets them apart from the crowd.
