The winning design in this year’s Imagine RIT poster contest was created by Kelly Hurlburt, a third-year student majoring in new media design at Rochester Institute of Technology.

Her design, an intricate and colorful machine formulated inside the numerals “2016,” was chosen from among 75 entries in the contest.

For her winning entry, Hurlburt—a resident of Webster, N.Y.—will receive $500 in Tiger Bucks. The poster will be used to promote the Imagine RIT: Innovation and Creativity Festival, set for 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 7 on the Henrietta campus.

There were nearly 10,000 votes cast in this year’s poster contest.
