2008 Poster Contest
Carly Schonberg, an illustration major from New Rochelle, N.Y., was the winning artist of the very first Imagine RIT poster contest. RIT students, regardless of major, were invited to submit designs, leading to a total of 32 entries in 2008. Schonberg, who went on to pursue a career in children’s books illustration, conceptualized the fusion of right-brain and left-brain outcomes to highlight the festival’s themes of innovation and creativity.
“I took a bunch of techniques I usually work with, particularly collage, and had fun with them,” she explains. “I’m very happy to have this opportunity to show that I can do a different type of illustration and still have it recognized.”
