Work by Design sophomore Nora Greene received an honorable mention in a competition by Maine Animal Coalition. Greene describes her thinking:

The animal rights movement spans a multitude of issues and animals. From animal agriculture to animal testing and habitat destruction, I found it difficult to represent all aspects and animals of this movement. In order to represent equality in al
l of these areas I decided to try and represent them abstractly. To express equality I used the Human Rights Campaign flag colors to imply equality across species, and symbolized animals through the DNA helix, representing an equality for all life. I composed the double helix into a circle in order to represent longevity and unity for the animal rights movement.
