The interpretation of self-designing as a building process of the own identity is proposed. It is based on the interpretation and understanding of the personal, social and cultural experience, cultural assimilation schemes that define a self-organization. Self-design is realized by means of discursive practices, involving the creation of the own discursive projects as an important factor of personal development. The personal project is presented as a meaningful version of the human being, to a large extent based on the process of assimilation of sociocultural discourses defining behavior scenarios and the main development vectors of the individual. Self-design is aimed at creating ideal models of personality itself. The main discursive models are personal projects as the creation of narrative design of of their own ideal history and thesaurus as the creation of an ideal personality unique world picture. The role of problems set by the person, first of all, of the problems in creating a sense of personal projects, is shown. These objectives are based in first on socio-cultural patterns, but by the development the personality redefines them and extends the definition, thus reconstructing his own personal design. The main types of personal projects are the socially oriented, based on examples taken in the society and standards; personality-oriented, based on the self-interpretation and self-understanding processes and defining the development and personal transformation vector; alternative, involving the creation of the desired design of himself
