Reflection Ignited

Curious about the Imagination Ignited graphic? We had a lot of fun creating it!

The graphic is based on the University seal, the storied academic emblem representing the Office of the President and educational history at Trinity University.

Sun rays taken from the seal and cropped in an intriguing, contemporary style showcase the energy, excitement, and forward momentum of Dr. Beasley’s presidency.
