Marketing and Communications has designed avatars to create a consistent presence for official University of Alberta social media accounts, such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube. The avatars are square but are designed to work within both square and circular framing. This is ideal for platforms such as Facebook, where the feed displays a circular avatar but the profile displays a square image.
Social media avatars are meant to be used in conjunction with the account name to provide context. Avatars may not be used in place of a subunit or central logo; nor may they be used for purposes other than social media avatars such as publications, merchandise, websites, signs or posters. An avatar may not be used as a design element, a stand-alone identity or a secondary logo.
To request an avatar, please fill out the social media avatar request form.
