The Effortless Method Of Making A Design Personal


The title is a little misleading as it's not about making designs in general, it's just about default user profile images. 37 Signals did something similar with Basecamp, but I like this idea better. Instead of a silhouette of a non-descript guy, the default avatar is a big colorful circle with the first letter of the users name in the center. It's nice, simple and colorful, and I just implemented this for Wookmark.
