Duolingo Design + Profile Images!

I was recently procrastinating and came across this website that listed how Duolingo is simplistic, bright, fun, etc. Very interesting to see, but that gave me another question.

I have seen that many moderators and admins have Duolingo-style profile images that seem to be made for them. I'm talking about tylrmurphy, Luis, KaiLoh, and many more.

I am wondering how they got their own Duolingo person and how I can get one too. Maybe they took a screenshot of the people in the lessons?

Any answer helps!

They were testing an avatar creation feature on mobile, but I haven't heard anything about it recently.

I haven't seen that before and I think it is quite neat to go through. Thanks for sharing.

I think because they work for Duolingo and they can ask the designer a favor to make that for them. If you want one, you can copy the design style and make one with some design tool like Sketch or PhotoShop etc.
