Back in November, I reworked the PnP Hero as an opensource SVG Vector image making several corrections and ensuring the hero looks good at any size. Then earlier this year, Vesa Juvonen announced he was using this design for some stickers (I’ve since gotten hold of one and they are awesome):
One of the things that became obvious though was that people would like to see more than just a dude. So… here’s my attempt at a lady:
Don’t like it or think something’s off? Good news! You can totally update it and submit a PR over in the PnPHero-SVG repo on Github!
While I don’t think there’s necessarily anything wrong with the PnP Hero we’ve had (but I wouldn’t would I), I think it’s important to be as inclusive as possible to make it clear that PnP is for everyone. After all, Sharing is Caring.
SharePoint PnP has contributors from all over the world of various gender and ethnicity. So, following the great example of emojis everywhere, in addition to female heroes, the PnP heroes now come in original, light, medium-light, medium, medium-dark, and dark skin tones:
The repository has a master SVG file with all of the layers, but there are also individual SVG files (as well as png files) for each included. These files can be freely used for anything (PnP related or not) with no attribution required.
This isn’t meant to be political commentary in any way, just an attempt to be more inclusive. Let me know what you think and if there is anything you think should be changed/added.
