Social Media Avatars

To maintain a consistent look and feel across all of Texas State University’s social media accounts, University Marketing has designed social media avatars that properly incorporate the university’s brand.  

 Do not use social media avatars outside of social media. Use our approved logos in publications or on merchandise.

What Are Social Media Avatars?

Social media avatars are graphics or images that represent a user on their social media profile(s). The use of a branded avatar can help social media users instantly recognize your official university account.
