To participate in Pride, UVU’s Alumni office asked me to create phone wallpapers for alums and current students to screenshot. There was no messaging determined or design ideas, so I was given free rein to create. This was posted on Instagram, so in addition to an intro graphic, I created four wallpapers:
- Adapting the university’s message of “come as you are,” I featured fifteen different pride flags on the graphic. This indicates the university’s willingness to accept all members of the LGBTQ community.
- I applied a campus mural stating “UVU, A Place For You,” on a rainbow background that gave emphasis to UVU’s branded green.
- For those who wanted less rainbow, the third wallpaper featured a campus image with several overlapping hearts in the sky. They enclose the “loved as you are” message.
- To round out the wallpapers with a less-branded option, the final design included a rainbow gradient with only the word “Pride.”
