Time for a makeover

The little things add up. I tend to live by that sort of “motto.”

So when I heard that some graphic design students were coming up with designs for a potential new UALR ID card, I was enthused.

From day one on campus as a freshman all the way to today, I have been surprised at how mundane our IDs are. The UALR logo used is ugly, the pictures are tiny and I can barely tell what they are pictures of.

When I think of UALR, I think maroon and silver. Trojan spirit. Little Rock. Capital city. Metropolitan environment.

But when I look at the current ID, I see B-O-R-I-N-G.

UALR is continuously working to redefine itself as a leader in the community and throughout the state. It might sound trivial, but the little things can help that image.

Below are a couple of samples from students. The vertical design was done by Byrdie Byrd and the horizontal design by James Henderson.

These show that ideas have been presented. It shouldn’t cost much to start making these for people who get new cards. You don’t have to make everyone new ones for free.

Heck, I’d go pay $15 to have a cool looking college ID.
