How many pics?

@verenaburger Currently there are 200 avatars in the set but we are working on 800 more for a total of 1,000. We will be publishing 100 new avatars about every 6 weeks. You can follow our progress here : https://diversityavatars.com/pro... - But please don't judge the lack of aesthetics on that page too harshly. We opted to spend time on the avatars instead. :-)

Hey everyone, just a quick note to let you know that you can follow our progress at https://diversityavatars.com/ico... The avatars take quite a bit of time to create because we are pretty meticulous with the technical details of the files but also in researching the different people and groups that we represent in the set. When we decided to create the set, we set a few rules for ourselves. This list is not exhaustive but they are: 1. Do not rely on assumptions, stereotypes, or our own pre-conceived ideas. Research, ask questions, learn. (NOTE: Some of the rough drafts _may_ violate this rule because they are sketches, not finished designs. The goal was to get the ideas on (virtual) paper quickly so we have a starting point from which to work. They will still be rigorously reviewed and refined as needed). 2. Do not depict anyone in a negative light. The goal is empathy. We are not about judgment, except in some fairly obvious exceptions, but even then, we try to remain neutral so that designers can use, subvert, modify the avatars as needed. 3. Accuracy and quality are more important than speed. If users have to wait a little longer, that is fine as long as we deliver the highest quality product we can. Thank you for your support. It has been truly humbling. @ramywafaa and I have put a lot of our shared passion into this and are really encouraged by the almost-universal positive reaction. One more quick note, you can also suggest an avatar or avatars at the same link above. If you are considering buying the set and there are any avatars in the "Progress" preview you need, or there are some you need, in general, let us know. We cannot promise, but we will do our best to include them in the upcoming release. We will be making 1,000 avatars just to start so it doesn't make much difference to us which ones we create when. If you need them, we want to do our best to add them. Cheers, Ramy & Scott
