Display user images and badges on Thumbtack.
One of the defining guidelines for avatars and their shape is what the avatar is representing. We divide these two groups into entities and users.
When images aren’t provided for avatars we use blank states in their place.
Initials are used for blank profiles and differ for entities and users. For entities, we use the first letter of the business name. For users, we use the first and last initial of the user’s name.
The initials will display capitalized and bolded.
Blank avatars get assigned a 100-level color from our extended palette based on the ascii value of the initials attached to the user name or entity.
