Cape Artist’s Marriage Equality Image Goes Viral

Inspired by a Facebook movement in support of marriage equality, a Cape graphic designer created a digital image that has been shared more than 450 times and “liked” by many, many more on Facebook within the past 24 hours.

 

Centerville native and graphic designer Jim Hill thought that he might get a few “likes” on Facebook, when he posted the image that he created Tuesday morning.

“To be honest, I didn't think it would spread at all. I figured I'd see a handful of "likes" and maybe some shares, but then it just took off,” Hill said.

Take off it did. Within a few hours of posting the digital image of a red “marriage equality” symbol superimposed over an image of the U.S. Constitution on Facebook, Hill’s work went viral. 

Hill’s design was inspired by a campaign in support of marriage equality that coincided with the U.S. Supreme Court’s historic consideration of a case involving California’s prohibition of same-sex marriages. 

Of course, as the founder of Digital Quill Design, a company that specializes in online media strategies, web development and graphic design services, Hill admits he had a leg up on creating a powerful design.
