Wondering about a best practice for handling empty pictures for profiles. Surely one could just have a default silhouette, but on long list pages where most users do not have profile pictures this becomes a waste of space.
Clearly there must be a better way to handle empty profile pics other than: 1) Silhouette 2) Hiding the pic entirely
Trello does something interesting where they use the person's initials within their 'pic' (see attached). I'm looking for solutions like this that go a step further in solving the problem.
