The winning design in this year’s Imagine RIT: Innovation and Creativity Festival poster contest was created by Sophia Del Plato, a third-year graphic design student at Rochester Institute of Technology.

Her design, bold blue with graphics incorporating elements from computing, art and the solar system, was chosen from among 34 entries in the contest.

Taking second place was a poster created by Emily Onyan, a third-year illustration major from Rochester, N.Y., and Kenny Radzyminski, a fourth-year marketing major from Cleveland.

For her winning entry, Del Plato—a resident of Batavia, N.Y.—will receive $500 in Tiger Bucks. And 5,000 copies of the poster will be distributed for free to visitors at the Imagine RIT: Innovation and Creativity Festival, set for 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 3 on the Henrietta campus.

Onyan and Radzyminski will also receive Tiger Bucks.

Nearly 8,000 members of the RIT and Rochester communities voted in this year’s poster contest.
