Avatars are the key way organizations identify themselves in social media. In just a few pixels we need to communicate not only UBC, but the specific unit the channel or page refers to. The system below provides a unifying look to UBC avatars, while ensuring that units can still clearly identify themselves, including the use of unit colours. By all UBC channels using these avatars, we create a much more consistent, coordinated, and professional presence for the university in social media. These avatars work in concert with other aspects of your social channels, including your profile or page name, as well as the social media background templates.
- All social media profiles (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Google Plus) that are managed on an official basis by a UBC faculty, department, program, centre, or office
Not To Be Used For:
- Personal social media profiles or social media profiles of individuals
