What is 'SHAON84'

SHAON84 is a web based personal creative showcase, launched in 2003 in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Virtually headquartered and globally served SHAON84 produces diversified creative contents mostly backed by the idea of founder-owner and SHAON84 Chief, Benzir Shaon. The motto of the site is, 'showcase of a life'.

So far known, SHAON84 is the first (and perhaps the only) personal website in the world who publishes annual report each year with its activity report and site statistics.

The 'Name'

The name SHAON84 came after the owner Benzir Shaon's name. The number 84 marks the site’s official launching date, 8 April (4th month of the year) 2003. This is also his birthday.

After being launched in 2003 as 'SHAON', it re-branded as SHAON84 on the digital day 10 October 2010 (10-10-10). The date of rebranding is also very interesting. The value of binary date 10-10-10 (101010) is 42. If we multiply 42 with 2, we will get 84.


The primary agenda of SHAON84 is displaying own works and helping others by providing useful contents where it is possible. Another important purpose is inspiring young minds who believe in the power that they have inside to change the world. SHAON84 believes in power of young minds, where 'young' does not meant to physical age, but a mental freshness to meet challenge, to grow and contribute to a greater community. With its own success, SHAON84 wants to set an example to those potential future change agents and inspire them to act based on their believe, “If Shaon can do that, why not me!”
