Icons should accurately reflect the diversity and beauty of all people. I started a little project for fun a while back to create avatars of people I know, celebrity icons, different ethnicity and culture icons, occupation icons, and different marketing personas. The set continued to grow so I decided to get more deliberate about creating avatars that represent the diversity of people and cultures around the world. New avatar icons are being added regularly to the set so check back often.
