Topic Images (Quora)
In order to make Quora reading experience more interesting and engaging, a team of designers and engineers worked together to develop a topic image experiment that supports every article on Quora having an image. There are numerous topics on Quora, to cover such different topics from science to cooking, we need to abstract the image so that each image can carry a broader meaning. We picked out major topics that cover all the content and design icons that fit them. The image is composed by icon and a layer of random code-generated pattern. So every time people create a piece of content, they don't need to spend much time finding a perfect image that fits their content, the customised image will be just one click away.
