York 2017 Unity Day Design

A design by Zixin Zheng, a Penn State York international student from Hangzhou, China, was selected as the winner for the Unity Day T-shirt for 2017. Zheng’s design, which features a hand tossing the letters in the word "unity," and lots of color, was inspired by the unitive spirit of Unity Day. Zheng said, “I designed a hand that looks like it is holding every letter from the word unity together, with an iridescent splash-ink background. I added all kinds of shapes around the letters for further embodying the concept of unity.”
