Graphic Elements

Tile Grid Pattern

The tile pattern is a background textural element that offers a sense of structure and dimension to designs. This pattern uses the established faceted and geometric language established across the new visual design system but also draws inspiration from marble tiles found across campus.

Polygon Frames

Thin linear frames built from nine-sided polygons and nine-pointed stars represent Emory’s nine schools and colleges. They echo the idea of seeing differently and bring a clean graphic element to layouts where a sense of sophistication and timelessness is needed. Photography can sit inside of these shapes as well as callout copy.

Arrow

The arrow is a small detail that conveys a sense of momentum and trajectory toward tomorrow’s breakthroughs. Arrows can accent designs as anchors, guiding the reader’s eye to entry points of content as well as adding textural weight or a window into content.

Diagonal Line Pattern

The line pattern is a textural element that reinforces the diagonal nature of the other visual design system elements. This pattern is used as either a border or overall background pattern.
