Gradient avatars

Do you ever need a placeholder profile image for someone? Perhaps for new users who haven’t uploaded an image yet.

Well, I often do. Which is why I’ve built Gradient Avatars, a tool that will give you a deterministic circular SVG image with a gradient based on some text.

For example, the text “hello” outputs:

Gradient Avatar With Text Hello

“asdf” creates the image:

Gradient Avatar With Text Hello

The source url for these images is{text}, where text is something unique.
