I was designing a site for a website dealing with school-age kids.
The original placeholder image we used had a gaggle of kids: about 20 Caucasian girls, one Caucasian boy, and two East Asian girls.
Client: That’s not diverse enough.
Me: I agree. Let me see what else I can bring up.
I found three images that might fit our needs, which the client kindly rated by “diversity.”
The first was a handful of African-American, Caucasian, and East Asian kids, split roughly evenly between boys and girls:
Client: Maybe diverse enough.
The next had four African-American boys, one Caucasian boy, and one African-American girl:
Client: That’s more diverse.
The last had three African-American boys:
Client: That’s the most diverse.
You keep using that word. I do not think you know what it means.
Not one of their images had any Middle Eastern or Latin kids.
