Poster To Commemorate Anniversay

Since the inception of Imagine RIT in 2008 we have hosted a poster design contest for RIT students to showcase their artistic innovation and creativity.

And this year is no exception.

With upwards of 70 entries annually, the online voting gallery is always a big hit among students, faculty, and staff as well as anyone who decides to visit our website to vote for their favorites.

The winner is announced by mid-March and then visitors to Imagine RIT can pick up a free copy of the winning design printed in a vertical, 14″ x 20″ format, suitable for displaying in a dorm room, home or office.

Are you a collector of posters from festivals past?  Perhaps you are missing one?  Visit our website where you can download and print any one of the past nine years’ winners.

RIT students who wish to enter this year’s contest may do so by February 17.

In commemoration of the 10-year anniversary of Imagine RIT, we have created a compilation poster displaying nine years’ of posters in a grid format. This is also available for download on our website, and after Intersession (holiday break) we will make this poster available to students, faculty and staff for pick up in specific locations around campus.  Stay tuned!


Tiger Paws – A New Way to Control your PC!


Each Tuesday between now and Imagine RIT on Saturday, May 3, 2014, we will share exclusive festival highlights.

The future of the computer mouse is here, and it’s at Imagine RIT! Tiger Paws is the next step in interface and interaction design, using 3D gesture and motion tracking to control your computer. The technology utilizes the Leap Motion controller to detect hand movement, allowing users to interact with virtual environments in 3D. At the festival, visitors can use their hands to bounce a virtual ball, knock over a wooden block tower, or spin and manipulate a virtual globe.

Tiger Paws showcases the unlimited potential of 3D interface design. Over the past few months, every member of the team put in countless hours to bring the project to fruition – be sure to check them out on May 3rd at Imagine RIT this year!
