Free to be Me

Designer: Angela 

Inspiration: 

"I always appreciate very simple designs as a way to rest as we are visually overstimulated often.  The idea for this design came from focusing on light.  When light is shined on something, it's true colors show.  Everyone is unique, colorful, and glowing when they feel safe and empowered to just be themselves, which is reflective of the title.  I hope everyone can look at this design and feel inspired to just be the light that you already are and pass that light on to others."

Stonewall Mosaic

Designer: Ethan 

Inspiration:

"The "Stonewall Mosaic' special edition Xbox and controller honors the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots that took place on June 28th 1969.  Inspired by the march, galvanizing action, and gradients, the design features a radial mosaic, with the location of Stonewall at the center. This symbolizes how a single action sparked a revolution that extended around the world.
The original design included controllers with multiple color configurations to celebrate the individual LGBTQI+ communities."

Inner Light

Designer: Aaron 

"I've been a designer at Microsoft for 5 years. I love swiss design, art museums, traveling, and going for walks in the sun. I'm originally from Alaska and came down to Seattle for college, studying at both UW School of Art and Cornish College of the Arts. My favorite places to travel are Arizona, Southern California, Hawaii, and Paris."

Inspiration:

"My inspiration started with a simple question: what is Pride? At its essence, it's love⁠—and respect⁠—for one's self. One of the most heartbreaking things in this world is the notion that a human being can feel scared, saddened, or shameful for simply being who they are as a person. We all have so much to offer this world and we shine in many different ways. Never forget to acknowledge your own inner light. " ​
