Earth Month Sticker Design Contest winner
Andy Keena, graphic designer, Knowledge Enterprise Strategic Marketing and Communications, won the 2023 Earth Month Sticker Design Contest. Keena began working at ASU in September 2022.
The sticker design was inspired by the dissected layers of Earth, such as the magma and magnetic core. Keena hopes to encourage the community to create solutions to the Earth’s sustainability and climate challenges.
“Surface-level concerns about climate change are not enough to break destructive habits, such as our reliance on fossil fuels, animal agriculture, food waste and fast fashion,” says Keena. “To truly make a difference, we must care to the core.”
Five guest judges from various ASU departments chose the design. University Sustainability Practices received 15 submissions for the annual contest. Judges selected Keena’s design because of the detail surrounding sustainability and the inspirational messaging.
“We are delighted about this year’s Earth Month design winner, especially since we received so many outstanding submissions,” said Marc Campbell, executive director of sustainability. “The design represents how important sustainability is for ASU and emphasizes our principles as a university.”
Keena’s winning design will be painted on the windows of the Memorial Union on the ASU Tempe campus and made into stickers for giveaways to ASU students, faculty and staff. Keena will receive two 20-ounce beverage tumblers decorated with his design.
